This video is all about how to sing high notes!

In the realm of singing, high notes are one of those things that have almost mythical status – they can be intimidating, scary, and mentally very troubling for singers, which, in turn, compromises vocal technique.

But knowing how to sing properly when it’s time for those “money moments” is simpler than you think…although “simple,” doesn’t always mean “easy.”

In this video, I’ll give you my top 3 tips for how to sing high notes like a pro, including:

-Why you should anticipate your high note BEFORE it comes
-Why breath is incredibly important for singing (but especially when it comes to high notes)
-How and why you should think DOWN as you go UP

Remember, high notes aren’t really any more “special” or concerning than other notes. So it’s important not to think of them as “separate” from the notes surrounding them. The mental side of this technique is just as important as the physical technique and prep!

  2. My high pitch was awesome… until I hit puberty. lol, thanks for helping
    me regain my high pitch!

  3. its just as easy as breathing in your nose with sort of a close breathing,
    not like the usual nasal inhale. its like when you try to hold tears flow
    down & you breath, it should feel narrow in the throat passage. i mean its
    not that hard, just the narration made it look so technical isn’t it? LOL.
    but guys, i experiment it myself, it do works! the science behind it is
    that when you do a ”NARROW NASAL INHALE” it warms or ready the larynx to
    support high notes. or probably because it avoids the larynx to go to down
    on the throat, this state is actually called ”NEUTRAL STATE”. try it, no
    need extensive warm up or shit like that, trust me!

  4. Okay I remember 3 years ago when I auditioned for a club in high school. I
    loved singing back then but I never did any belts outside my house. So when
    the director played the instrumental for my audition piece, I got so
    nervous that I didn’t know I was already belting. And all of my classmates
    were shocked since it was their first time hearing me sing like that.(Also
    I used to be a silent girl) I got shocked too. But now I can’t do it
    anymore. I can’t do high notes that easily but I still went to a vocal
    coach months ago. Now, I’m slowly reviving my voice and this video also
    helped me 🙂 thank you

    1. also, I’m trying my best to not get too shaky when performing in front of
      everyone. My stage fright is now worse ._.

    Fel, I find the two of your videos I’ve enjoyed quite entertaining and very
    much like your way of presenting your content. But enough praise, I need to
    be off not scrunching my face… ;)

  6. my voice is always raspy and cracky because i don’t drink water a lot and
    when i hit a high note, the voice just disappears, i don’t know why, maybe
    too little air? i try very hard mentally to hit the high’s though..
