Don't get frustrated being unable to hit the high notes of the songs you love. A professional singing tutor will give you this vocal workout to sing lower and higher.
Hi, I'm Sonia Jones. I'm a professional singing teacher and I'm going to give you tips and advice on how to sing. Now, this is how to sing higher and lower.
It's an exercise I use and it's going in and out of the placements of the voice, and it's called stretching and it really increases the top range and the bottom range. So, it's a good vocal workout. So, I'm going to get Abel to demonstrate this for you.
And that's a nice rich bottom sound. Now, we're going to demonstrate how to stretch the higher voice. We'll do middle voice first and the higher.
Now, we'll go higher. Let's go. And that's what I do in all of my lessons.
I always do my exercises by stretching the higher voice and I go straight back to the bottom voice and stretch down. So, all the bits in the middle are sounding great. I'd like to tell you a little bit about placement singing.
I think it's an incredible technique. Your voice is like an instrument. If you notice, the piano's got a big body because the sound comes from the body, the guitar, the violin, the trumpet, and we have, and a lot of people just sing from their throats, which is the smallest area to sing.
So if I was going to show you a note like singing from my throat, sometimes it's a nice effect for recording but I would bring it down here, so listen to the difference in the tone. You can go on forever. You've got much more control and that's a placement.
Now, what you would do in placement singing is jump from “Aah” which is going to be in the throat, so if I was to do octave, that's singing from this placement to this placement. And how to do that, to practice, is lift your tongue and put it on the roof of your mouth and go, so the sound is coming from here instead of you can hear how that is damaging the throat. So, it's using all the biggest areas nearest to your vocal chords to get the biggest sounds and clearer sounds without damaging your voice.
And that's called placement singing. .
