Vocal and singing How to restore a broken voice

Alas, with the loss of voice, sooner or later, every vocalist is faced. Very often, the cause of a broken voice is not intensive vocals, but a scream, especially in a state of intense anger or affect. A torn voice disappears not like during a cold, but suddenly right after a scream or even during it. He immediately becomes hoarse and then disappears altogether. A vocalist can only speak in a whisper, in pain. Here are the steps you need to take right after you pluck your voice.

FIRST AID WITH A BROKEN VOICE In order to avoid the dangerous effects of a voice injury, you first need to take it as soon as you feel a rash and sudden hoarseness. Shut up immediately. In the first minutes, it can only be explained by gestures, because, depending on the degree of damage to the ligaments, bleeding may open. To prevent this from happening, you need to shut up and not talk at all for the first two hours. Especially if it hurts you to speak or your voice has become weak and hoarse. Wrap the neck area with a warm scarf or soft woolen fabrics, for example, a collar of a sweater or a fur jacket. At first, this will soften the unpleasant sensation and allow you to relax the muscles of the larynx. The neck should be warm all the time, even in summer. Continue reading

How to increase your voice range?

Each vocalist dreams of having a wide range of working voices. But not everyone can use professional methods to achieve a beautiful sounding voice in any part of the range and try to expand it on their own at the expense of health. To do this correctly, the vocalist needs to follow certain rules.

VOICE POSSIBILITIES AND CONTRACTOR AGE The range of voice varies throughout life. Even for talented children, it is much narrower than that of an adult vocalist with average abilities, so expanding it to 7–9 years is useless. The fact is that in young children, the vocal cords are still being formed. To get a beautiful sound at this age and try to expand the range artificially is a waste of time and energy, because the child’s voice is very fragile and it’s easy to harm the wrong exercises. In the process of singing, its range itself expands, without additional effort. Continue reading

How to learn to sing high notes

High notes can be difficult for beginner vocalists, and more so for those who did not sing in the choir during their childhood. You can learn to sing them correctly at any age. Training will go faster if the vocalist already had experience in singing during school years. For many reasons, many performers are afraid to take high notes, but in fact, with the help of special exercises you can learn to correctly and beautifully take them.
A few simple exercises will help you learn to sing high in the upper part of your range without additional sound amplifiers and reverb. But first you need to figure out what prevents you from singing easily and beautifully and staying on top in a complex head tessitura.

WHY HIGH NOTES ARE DIFFICULT TO SING EVEN SOPRANO There can be many reasons for singing difficulties in high parts of the range. The vocalist begins to be frightened of them both due to physical and psychological factors. However, his voice can really sound ugly on the top notes. Continue reading
