Most people believe that they are born with a limited or restricted vocal range and it is impossible to expand it . However, it is only their lack of confidence and to some extent, a lack of awareness on their part, which prevents them from traversing unknown vocal territories. To overcome this, a proper understanding of one’s own self, both physical and mental, is vital. Music is often regarded as a synchrony of the natural and automatic sound functions of the body. We often think that reaching a range beyond the “breaking point” of a person’s voice is difficult, as controlling the few notes during the crossover from your lower to your upper chords requires a lot of practice and dedication. When a person reaches the “breaking point”, the notes beyond this become very light and airy. This is commonly referred to as “falsetto”. With the right techniques and proper guidance, it will not be difficult for you to hit high notes. In case you don’t believe us, check out the tips given below, on how to sing high notes easily while singing.
How To Hit High Singing Notes Easily
- It is very essential that you learn to shift your vocal gears, once you reach the falsetto point. This is because without this, there will be a lack of solidity and depth in your tone.
- Avoid forceful usage of your vocal musculature and do not try to lead your voice to a level where you will end up doing nothing more than yelling the tunes.
- A very common mistake that most people make, while trying to hit high chords, is creating an imbalance between the resonance of the mouth and the head. Hence, even though they are able to pitch a higher tune, most of it ends up in the head, which is popularly called the “classical sounding head voice”. So, all you need to do is try to create a balance between resonance of the mouth and the head, to achieve the desired effect.
- Prior to practicing any high vocal ranges, it is vital to perform certain warm-up exercises for your vocal chords; else, your voice will become raspy and hoarse. So, before you get into the actual practice sessions, start humming a few tunes within your normal range or do a few warm-up exercises. A very popular vocal warm-up exercise is the “breathing technique”. It is a known fact that proper breathing technique is vital for hitting the correct notes and achieving the right tone. For this, utilize your diaphragm muscles, making your tone not only fuller, but also smoother. Start by lacing your finger over your mouth and say the word “shhh”, continuing till you are out of breath. Relax completely after this and allow your lungs to fill in automatically. Repeat this process 5 times per set, for a total of 7 to 8 sets.
- While practicing, start from the middle range of your vocal cord and proceed to the higher tunes. However, keep in mind not to overstrain your voice and drink water whenever you feel the need of hydrating yourself.
- The correct vowel modification is very important while experimenting with higher tunes, as every person has certain vowels that work best for his/her type of voice. Having found this, you can gradually proceed to modifying towards that vowel as you ascend up.
- Another major factor while aiming for high notes is acquiring a good physical posture. Correct body posture is essential to get proper breathing techniques and control the amount of airflow into our vocal chords.
