How to sing high notes!

Posted by Beatrice Beston on Friday, May 2, 2014
  • Keep your throat loose and relaxed, like when you're yawning. 
  • Warm up by humming simple ascending arpeggios. 
  • If your voice cracks when you hit the high notes, it is likely that you are singing from your throat, which damages your voice. Push your larynx down your throat. This action is also achieved by trying to yawn.
  • Always always always make sure you have enough air to support your sound.
  • Avoid tensing up before singing the high note; this leads to the tightening of throat muscles and subsequently the cracking of the voice. Many singers tense up because they are daunted by their apparent inability to hit the high notes, even before singing it! Overcome this by believing in yourself, and make sure you are supporting properly!
