How do you get to Carnegie hall? Practice!!!! You stated that you just found your "Head Voice". Yes you are tiring yourself out. Its something new that your throat will have to deal with. Over time you will develop more control, sustain, and range. BEWARE however, Pro's mess there voices up all the time from over-practice. So don't burn up your vocal chords ...

I've seen people misidentify the octaves before on this type of question, so be certain that you have the correct notes (C6 is the "Soprano High C", and should sound really high). If you have the correct octave numbers, proceed. It's definitely not impossible for males to sing C6. Michael Jackson in Smooth Criminal, anyone? Prince? Freddie Mercury's done it ...

In addition to User Eamon O'Dwyer's answer, I think the headaches may be a point of concern, especially for days after practice. I recommend you see a vocal specialist about that, if not a doctor.

In my opinion apps are not the way to go for either. Here is my reasoning. Based of your description and my experience with some apps, these can never provide meaningful feed back on you technique or issues you may have with your body, posture, pressure, etc. Not to say that AI and sensor integration can't evolve that far, but it's not there yet. A real ...

Okay, Nick. We've got to unpack some things. Your voice doesn't mature at the same rate as the rest of you. Believe it or not, your voice won't really reach full "maturity" until your early-mid 30's. It is very common for people's voices (especially trained singers) to change several times before it matures (i.e. "settles"). Do you have to practice? Well, I'...

Yes, fatigue is normal from use, but your level of it comes from poor technique. Your jaw and neck are tired because you are relying on the muscles to make the sound and not using enough air. 99% of problems are fixed with proper breath management. The real name for “Head voice” is “Falsetto”, which is an Italian word that roughly translates to “false voice”...

my vocal teacher and she told me that have a connection between muscles and high note Yes, she is right. The question is: Which muscles? >and every time that have a high note I need to make a squat to strengthen the muscles until I reach to high without squat. I don't believe that believe that to strengthen your vocal cords. Your singing teacher is ...

Long story short: if you live in an area with strong Indian culture and are very familiar with Indian Classical music, start there. If you just think Indian music is cool, start somewhere else. Either one is going to provide you with a lot of the fundamentals of vocal training (breath support, pitch, posture, etc.) Anything that doesn't overlap between the ...

The answer is right there in your first sentence... "recovering". Once you've actually recovered, you'll be fine. No good trying to rush it & push it, you'll hurt something if you're not careful. Cancel the gig.

You are doing something that does not feel natural yet and that will take time. I have studied classical voice for a couple years now (still a beginner). I can tell you from personal experience that you will feel strange tickles and buzzing and all sorts of weird feelings. Some are normal and some an indication of strain. You need to tell your instructor ...

Ok, where is that itch? deep in the neck or higher? Is it really an itch or a mild strain? I am 3 months into lessons and I have a mild strain in my larnyx - above the Adam's apple ... below is the esophogus. If it's that then it's not breathing, it straining ... trying slightly too hard because you really do want to exercise getting the most sound out you ...

Each style is appropriate in its context of emotion, lyrics, and musical phrasing. Even just within the genre of this accompaniment, you've certainly heard singers cover the range of styles sung here. No general rule can say that one Yee is better than another, out of context. What to improve on: pitch accuracy. If you're going to swoop up to a pitch ...

OK this is a question that no-one here can answer because they do not know you, they have never heard you sing and they do not know how much effort you are putting into getting to the top/bottom of your range at the moment. Pushing your upper limit further has the potential to be dangerous and/or damaging; you need to take the advice of a professional ...

Your vocal fold tissues are still inflamed from your sinus issues. The main muscles involved in phonation are the vocalis, the crico-thyroid, and the thyro-arytenoid. In a recovering/inflammation situation, the mid-range is the last to come back. Cancel the gig, hire a sub, but don't try to sing a 4-hour gig in two days. That will just make it worse. Allow ...

As a VERY general rule, yes, you'll lose some top range. It would be most unusual for age to bring an EXTENDED high range! I make no further predictions.

Sounds like you're tensing your throat up when you sing, that's what's creating the effect of your voice being "in your throat", however, it sounds like when you speak, your throat relaxes. I'd echo what was said above and look for a good voice teacher (Brett Manning, for example - just google his name ! ) so that that teacher can teach you properly. As ...

First off, you do not know what you are doing. Sorry if that seems harsh but you are going to hurt yourself. You friends who seem to be able to sing w/o lessons maybe are not as good as you think. I can address some of the causes of your described problems but my advice is... Get lessons from a trained vocalist ASAP. The muffled sound could be due to a ...

Depends on the vocalist, really. That said, in the musical theater world, sopranos typically try to use chest voice up to somewhere between C5-G5 (as I said, it varies by vocalist) before switching to head voice. For soprano voices, it is usually much more comfortable / sustainable for them to use their head voice, and most prefer to use that whenever they ...
