Expanding your range is a good goal to have, but it’s happening naturally the stronger your breathe management is, and is being aided as you learn how to use your middle voice.
A sign that you’re not ready for expanding your range is if you’re reaching for the next highest note.
Going to the next note should feel very natural, inhaling and exhaling should be strain free, carry yourself freely - in your posture, be strain free in your neck and chaw position.
Don’t rely on your chaw to create your sound.
How to exercise:
- Continue to build your vocalizing technique in your daily life to gain endurance and to build muscle.
- Train your ear by listening to the voices that are around you to identify some of the healthy and unhealthy voice trates.
- Don’t worry as you get used to your middle voice. To a lot of people it sounds totally different to what they are used to feel when they are singing. Therefore, record as you exercise, listen to your tendencies and your growth.
- Have a mirror near by where you’re watching yourself. Don’t move up and down with your body as you sing.
- Think about your breath, breathe steady.
Gug, Gag, Mum, Mam, No, Nei, Na
