Do you need vocal exercises for pitch range?
Are you looking to take your vocal range to new heights?
Would you like to experience hitting tremendously high notes, and low notes, with the ease of speaking. If so, read on…
To have an impressive, large vocal range, there are certain elements of your voice that need to be in balance.
On this page you are going to learn about these things, and a step-by-step method that is guaranteed to increase your vocal range dramatically.
These things are your air pressure,your vocal chord coordination, and your vocal resonance.
By the way, if any of this sounds complicated, don't worry. Learning to increase your vocal range is as simple as practicing the right vocal exercises for pitch range. In a moment you will learn exactly which exercises will do this for you… and exactly why this happens…
Let's look a little closer at these three things that influence your ability to hit staggeringly high and low notes.
Firstly, your air pressure. Now, contrary to what many people believe…
Doing exercises that specifically train you how to breathe is not effective if you want to improve your singing.
Well the simple answer is that you already know how to breathe! If you didn't it's unlikely you'd still be alive!
And breathing for singing is an easy, natural process. It doesn't involve any complicated breathing styles as some teachers may lead you to believe.
You don't need to focus on your breathing to sing in a large vocal range.
Ok, so the next element is your vocal chord coordination's…
You're vocal chords are sort of like a string on a guitar. When you play a guitar, you can hit a higher note simply by "fretting the string". When you do this, the string vibrates at a higher frequency and produces a higher note.
With your vocal chords, it's similar. Instead of "fretting the string" like on a guitar, your vocal chords "zip up" as you sing higher. This is sort of like when you zip up your sweater. As you sing higher into your range, there is a point where your chords need to be shorter to sing higher.
So they "zip up" so there is less of the vocal chords vibrating. When this happens the chords can vibrate faster, and you can hit higher notes with ease.
The big problem is that most singers don't understand this concept, and therefore try and "yell" their higher notes, which is like trying to play a high note on a guitar by "bending" the string instead of moving your finger further down the fret board and fretting it.
The other problem that happens to many singers is they "break" into a lighter, less powerful sound known as "falsetto". What's happening here is the vocal chords have come slightly apart because they didn't know how to "zip up". Falsetto can be used stylistically at times, but if you want to know how to hit your higher notes with power and great tone, you must learn how to "zip up" or "shorten" your vocal chords and sing in your “full” voice.
So how does one learn to make the required vocal chord coordination's to sing in a LARGE vocal range? Well, once again it comes down to the vocal exercises for pitch range that will automatically condition the correct coordination into your voice…
Ok, the last issue here is your vocal resonance. What I'm talking about here is the way that the sound moves through your facial structure, and becomes amplified into the sound you eventually hear.
When you sing, there are three main cavities in your facial structure that your sound "bounces around" in. These are your throat, your mouth and your nasal cavity.
Your sound will move around in these cavities in different proportions for each different note that you sing.
To sing really high or really low notes requires two different "mixes" in terms of vocal resonance.
Just like breathing though, this is something that you don't need to try and "force". With the correct exercises you will learn which "mixture" is best for ever note you sing.
With practice you will begin to remember how your sound flows through you by the "muscle memory" that is imprinted into your neurology.
It's sort of like riding a bike. When you first try to do it, it's difficult… but as you practice, you begin to remember how it feels to ride. And once you remember exactly how it feels to ride a bike, it's easy and you can do it any time.
It's the same learning to sing in a LARGE vocal range. When you practice the correct vocal exercises for pitch range, you develop "muscle memory"… You learn exactly what it feels like to hit high and low notes correctly. When you get to this stage, you can hit any note, low or high, with absolute ease.
These are the only exercises I know of that actually guarantee a FULL octave increase in vocal range.
Do they deliver?
Well, I'm one of many people that I know that's managed to increase my vocal range by over an octave with these exercises. (By the way, an octave means 8 full notes)
These vocal exercises for pitch range condition your voice to function in a way that has the three elements I've discussed in perfect balance. This is the only way that you can sing in a large vocal range with no strain or stress on your voice. In fact, singing in this way is as easy as talking.
If you want to add many notes to the top and bottom of your vocal range, I suggest you investigate these vocal exercises and marvel at how they effortlessly increase your range.
I don't know of any method that is as effective as this, although there are many methods that will actually prevent you from ever experiencing this part of your voice.
