How to fix a nasal singing voice!
A nasal voice is the worst, right? You’ve put in all of this hard work to your technique – building range, developing your breath support and spending weeks and months on the basics just to get to a point where you can ‘stand’ your voice – but it’s still coming out really NASAL… but why?
