This "flat" happens when you raise your larynx and your throat is closing and squeezing, making your notes go flat on high notes, this also reduces air flow.

To solve this, use the “ugh" or "duh” sound in your singing exercises, and also stretch your larynx like in yawning when singing higher.

Step 4: Stop Your Voice From Cracking Or From Flipping Into Falsetto

This happens because your vocal chords split apart.

To get better control of grip and chord closure, do vocal exercises using the “G” and “B” sounds.

Strengthen your mix voice by using your pharyngeal resonator. Also start by singing in your head voice with a very relaxed tone, and slowly add power.

All the best in your singing endeavors!
