IntroFrom: How to Gradually Sing Lower
by Camille van Niekerk
Welcome to your tutorial on how to gradually sing lower! High notes seem to get all the attention; it’s time to give our low notes a little love!
In part 1, we’ll get started with some low note support, including vocal fry and using our speaking voice to find low note placement. Part 2 will consist of several exercises to gradually stretch your range lower; and part 3 will cover sustaining those low notes.
Because we’re working on gradual growth, give yourself time and permission to move at your own pace. Consider staying on part 1 for a few weeks. There’s no benefit to rushing through.
See you in part 1!
