How To Sing Higher In Chest Voice With STABILITY & CONSISTENCY

pro singing tips Jun 03, 2021
 

The most common areas you might get stuck with your chest voice range are going to be either:

  1. The first bridge (F4 for males / C5 for females)
  2. Or the 2nd bridge (A4 for males / E5 for females). 

In this video I'll show you what to do if you're getting stuck at either of those areas with your chest voice.

The way I build voices is in segments.  Before trying to go higher, the first main goal is to build an extremely strong, solid chest voice up to your first bridge (F4 for guys, C5 for ladies).  It needs to be loud, solid and clear.  I go more into detail about this in my last video here.

In my program THE PRO SINGER'S VAULT each section has a "standard" you're trying to achieve and once you can achieve it then you move on to the next section:

The "exercise progressions" are what you use when you are building up towards the "standard".

If you cannot meet this "standard" then what will happen is when you try to go beyond the first bridge you'll get the problems the gentleman in my video was having - the notes above the first bridge will be unstable, and you'll get stuck around the 2nd bridge area (A4 for guys, E5 for ladies).

So that's the first step.  Get really good at your first bridge.  Once you've done that then we can focus on how to approach the 2nd bridge.

If you're getting stuck at the 2nd bridge, then it's likely that your approach from the first bridge up is going wrong.  Just because you can sing up to the notes doesn't mean you're doing it in a way that will take you to your goals. 

This took me many years to figure out because I used to be stuck at the 2nd bridge and couldn't figure out what to do.  I could HIT all the notes and they didn't feel very hard, but it was unstable and wasn't getting better.

So just keep that in mind, that you might be training in a way that isn't actually taking you forward.

In this video I demonstrate how maintaining a lower larynx and keeping good vocal cord compression is absolutely critical to getting the stability in the higher range, and I show some vocal exercises to achieve it and what to do.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to let me know.
