Range ExtensionPosted in Category Open Discussion

I just started practicing range extension with the How To Gradually Sing Higher Lesson, but with some of the exercises thus far, my voice tends to barely hit and mostly crack when I try to hit those notes. As I am aware that range extension happens with time, will I able to eventually hit those notes with time ?

Everyone's voice is different and you may have to practice quite a bit more and take it slowly before you can truly take advantage of your voice.
However, everyone's voice has different vocal qualities and vocal ranges. If you have trouble or feel pain or discomfort from singing at a certain pitch, you should stop so you don't damage your voice!
If you're new to singing, or still a beginner, I recommend taking the beginner course first so you can fully understand your voice.

Getting an idea of your vocal range would be a good idea - see the blog post for step-by-step instruction on how to do that: https://www.30daysinger.com/blog/finding-your-vocal-range
If you find that you fall more comfortably in the bass/baritone or tenor range, that can give you a clearer picture of which notes "should" eventually be singable for you. I'm not a fan of putting singers in a box, because we can all work to extend our ranges - but I think for you it would be helpful to know your range as something of a guideline. Hope that helps!
