Developing a strong high singing voice takes a lot of time and effort. These tips will help develop your voice. This works if you actually try! The most important thing to remember is to breath when you can. It is very important so that you don’t feel ill for not getting enough air into your lungs.
Tips for a strong high singing voice:
Drink water with honey in it. This will help soothe your throat. Drink it before a performance. It might help.
Do not “over sing”. There is a limit of how much you can sing. If your throat starts to feel raspy, stop singing and drink some room-temperature water; if you have any lemon or lemon juice, pour some in.
Take a rest every hour or so to give your throat some time to relax.
Keep on singing and don’t get scared or nervous. Pretend you are all alone somewhere where you always wanted to be.
If some of the songs you want to be able to sing incorporate very high notes that you have trouble reaching, warm up by singing in a lower octave first.
Practice your range, and try to sing the highest and lowest comfortable notes everyday, and before you sing to release tension, and expand your range!
Sit up and try to raise your eyebrows while making an 0 with your mouth and face. Don’t strain your voice, though.
Don’t eat dairy before singing.
Do not eat large ‘heavy’ meals before singing.
Practice in a room that echoes (for example, a room with no furniture). It will help when you are singing.
As you sing, try to release less air, not more; expelling more air will actually soften the sound of your singing rather than strengthen it.
Quiet places increase your voice to sing higher, and singing in front of people decreases your “stage fright”.
Drink lots of water. (It’s best to drink tepid water. This will lessen the ‘shock’ to your vocal chords.) Avoid alcohol, milk, hot chocolate and other thick drinks.
Avoid chocolate before you are going to sing.
Try swimming. Holding your breath underwater will help your lungs become stronger.
Relax your body and do some breathing exercises. Remember to keep your shoulders down as it will help when singing higher notes. It will help you sing beautiful because sometimes you lift your shoulders when you sing high. Also try to think low when you are singing high.
Never clear your throat too hard as this can damage the vocal chords.
If you feel like you can’t reach the high notes while performance, then go slightly lower. Attempting a high note will cause your voice to sound raspy.
If you have a square fan or enclosed fan practice vocal warm ups in them while going higher and lower, this will help you loosen your voice to get a higher pitch.
Try closing your eyes. If you’re a beginner, this helps a lot, with or without with stage fright.
Warm up your voice before you attempt hitting high notes. Afterwards, go a note higher and try to go up as many octaves you can.
Stand straight and tall, with the crown of your head floating towards the sky. If it helps, try to imagine yourself as seaweed, it’s a great way to keep your spinal cord nice and straight so your vocal chords can work naturally. Don’t force them, remember, they are your friends for reaching those notes. Take care of them.
