Hi Kristyn, we just streamed a live lesson on tone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHpE2PYRGRA.
Here are a few ideas on modifying tone as well!
Two ways to approach modifying your tone:
(1) Change registration (chest/mix/head) + use specific physical adjustments (dropped jaw, lifted palate, height of larynx, etc)
(2) Using your ear with good tonal models: find singers whose tone you want to emulate, and use your ear to imitate them (as best as you can). Recording yourself + playing back is a good way to see how close you're getting! Doing "impressions" can teach you how to make tonal adjustments with your ear (and brain). Physical adjustments will result (ie: you try to sound like Kermit to Frog, and if you're successful, it doesn't just magically happen: you're constricting your throat in some way, but to get there, the specific sound of Kermit's voice was the goal, not the throat constriction).
