Your Vocal Range!
probably heard lots of different opinions on expanding vocal range.
Some say that it can't be done, that your range is what it is and you
can't do much about it. Others say that you can improve it by drastic
amounts in a short period of time, depending on what techniques you
of all, everyone
has a vocal classification. It refers to the type of voice you have. It's
really important to understand what type of voice you have so you can
determine what would be a realistic range for you to obtain.
men in order from lowest to highest, you can be one of three main
to classical methods of teaching singing, most vocal ranges are about
2-3 octaves (8 total whole tones) in length. For women, there are also
types of voices are called "vocal classifications." They basically
stand for what range your voice sounds best in. For example, an alto
female voice sounds best singing alto notes. It doesn't necessarily
mean she can't sing soprano notes, just that she sounds best singing
notes. Her voice may be more powerful and rich lower down in the
same would apply to a male tenor. His voice would sound best singing
higher notes, and his low notes may be weak.
to many classical vocal teachers, the voice is supposed to be made up of one continuous
range... even and smooth from top to bottom. Other teacher will say
that the voice can be divided up into three or more "vocal
or mixed voice,
voice is the lowest register, and it's the one that people would use
to speak in. Head voice is what you would use to sing high notes, as
high as you can before your voice starts to crack. (At that point, you
would either quit or work to smooth your voice into the next register,
which is whistle voice.)
that adopt the use of vocal registers into their training improve
their ranges by working to move between these registers smoothly,
is when you are moving up or down in your range, and your voice gets
to a point where it can't produce a higher (or lower) sound anymore
using the same technique.
has to switch suddenly to a different technique to allow for the
higher (or lower) notes to be produced, and the result is a sharp,
sudden change in your vocal cord coordination, causing a scratchy and
terrible sounding break.
idea is this: You are able to sing really high and low notes already.
A large range isn't developed, but discovered. Have you ever been
kidding around and imitated an opera singer singing a really high
note? If you can do it kidding around, you can certainly sing it.
if you can speak it, or even utter it, you can sing it.
idea behind improving your range using this method of training is just
to smooth out the breaks in your voice to get you from the bottom to
the top in one even motion. This is done usually by practicing scales
with some very different sounds.

no no no no no.
this method, you are taught to smooth our breaks in your voice by singing scales with lip rolls and tongue trills. That's basically
methods of vocal training would tell you different. Some teachers
claim that dividing the voice into sections (registers) is psychologically
damaging! They teach different ways to improve the vocal range, like:
bending, which is basically changing the formation of the mouth to
sing higher notes,
breath support while keeping an open throat, which is told to carry
you right through to high notes,
technique imitation. Basically you just teach your voice through
practicing to sing higher notes, one at a time with the same
technique you used to sing lower ones. (This can be a very slow

methods. Using them the wrong way can make them completely

getting the result you wanted because you were doing it the wrong
