Extending Vocal Range
Isn't Singing all about having a huge vocal range ? When we hear some great singers hit high notes with ease and perfection, we often wonder, if we had this vocal range we would be great singers too. Right ?. Answer is No. Huge Vocal range is only one of the skills required to be a good singer. In fact in many Genre of singing two to three octave vocal range is good enough.
The most commonly asked question by amateur singers is - "How do I increase my Vocal Range ?". The counter question would be "Why do you want to increase your vocal range ?", While its important to increase your range, one must understand that powerful singing is not limited to singing higher notes. In any case extending your vocal range is important. The first thing you must understand is that as you sing higher notes, you must reduce the amount of air that is coming out. This sometimes translates into reducing your volume.
