    Hello, I have a problem with singing using head voice or falsetto, because when singing high notes, my voice start cracking a bit and I can't hold a note. This doesn't happen when I'm singing low notes with this technique. Should I just practice and expand my head voice/falsetto until it becomes more natural? Will practicing also make my head voice louder? Thank you!

    When you're experiencing that, switch to a vowel or syllable that's easier and more comfortable. In general, people do better with narrow vowels (OO and EE), as opposed to wide vowels (like those in the words HEY and YEAH). You can also switch to something semi-occluded (like singing through a straw, using a lip trill, or an NG sound). This makes it easier for your vocal folds to function and balances your airflow at the same time. Semi-occluded exercises are also a great way to strengthen your head voice, because they line up the vocal folds and encourage more efficient closure (so air isn't leaking through as much).
