IntroductionFrom: Range Extension
by Abram Poliakoff
Welcome to your range extension tutorial! In the first lesson, we’ll cover the general principles of range extension, which include starting small, expanding gradually, and using semi-occluded vocal tract exercises. In the second and third videos, we’ll focus specifically on low notes, then on high notes, with exercises for each.
