Welcome to daily range extension practice for high voices. This series will cover the three areas most singers care about: low notes in part one, high head voice or falsetto in part two, and mix or belt range in part three. 

If an exercise goes too high or low to be sung, please consider the following, in order:
  1. Modify the syllable or vowel (meaning, sing on something that feels easier to you)
  2. Switch to something semi-closed (like a lip trill, straw singing, hum or NG)
  3. Sing the pitches you can, and audiate (sing in your head) any pitches you can’t
  4. Drop out and rejoin when you’re able

Stay tuned for an easy, medium-range warmup!
