Tricks Sing High Notes

Feathers: To learn how to sing your full range, you may experience cracking in your voice. To solve this problem is to lighten up on the trouble notes let the notes float. The reason that the notes crack is the membranes and muscles do not have the “memory” required to do the transition you need. Sing through the breaks, do not stop otherwise a habit of doing so will develop.

Increase the air speed: Increase the air speed for the high notes, decrease air speed on the lower. The reason is this, different frequency has certain air speed to produce the best tone. Let your ears tell you that the balance is achieved. The tone should be clear pure and clear.

Tense jaws: Stretch the jaws and face before singing to make sure the jaws and face are relaxed. That is because if they are tense they will prevent you hitting those high notes. One way to tell if you are breathing correctly is that your chest isn’t moving, your belly is. Never strain or hurt your voice. It helps to drink water to keep the vocal cords hydrated.

Use your diaphragm: If you breath by using your belly muscles then you are only half of your resources. Cutting into the power that the back muscles can provide. To properly breath, fill the abdomen, feel the expansion all around including the back. Then “compress the air” which will support the vocal release. This caused by lifting the diaphragm up from the center of the body. One way to tell if you are breathing correctly is that your chest isn’t moving, your belly is.

Vowel modification: every one has particular vowels that work best for them when they sing “above the staff.” When you learn the vowels that work for you then you can practice modifying the vowels as you go up the scale.

A good way to sing high notes is to start with singing as low as possible. This allows your vocal cords to stretch so that when you go to sing the higher notes you can increase the range you can sing. Caution though don’t strain your voice when you are singing below your normal range because you voice will crack preventing you from hitting the higher notes.

An easy test to see if you are singing the high notes properly is to put a finger on the voice box in other words your larynx then you sing up the scale to tell whether if your voice box moves higher up the neck. This is the wrong way. Another way is to hold your tongue and sing, this to tell if your tongue gets in the way. If your throat hurts the best way to help that is to drink peppermint tea with lemon juice and honey.
