How To Sing High Notes Without Straining

Knowing how to sing is a great skill.

Knowing how to sing high notes without straining is an even better skill.

Why?

Because it allows you to become more dynamic, exciting, flexible.

Each one of us is born with a specific vocal range. But there are ways to improve on it. And sometimes, quite dramatically.

You can either go higher than your range or lower than your range. And of course before anything, you need to find out what your range is. To do that, you can use an app, a video or a keyboard.

Once you know your range, you can then move forwards to wanting to sing higher. Think of it this way. You need to know where you are before you know where you are going.

And guess what the key thing is about being able to sing higher.

It is being able to use your body correctly. That’s all. It’s that simple. Once you do this, you will certainly have more vocal range left to tap into.

As we move along, you need to first understand what singing “correctly” means. It means allowing your vocal chords to shorten as you sing higher.

But while you are doing this, you should not push too much. If you do that you will likely be straining your voice. Instead, you need to actually “let go”. And when you let go, your brain will do the rest. It will actually shorten your chords and make your higher notes flawless.

An perfect vocal exercise that will help you practice singing into your higher range without straining, is the lip trill.

Find videos of this exercise on Youtube. Practice along with them and if you notice strain, remember to “let go”.

The exercises will show you how to sing high. Practice daily and you will begin to feel a difference.
