How to Sing High like Rob Halford / Head Voice Screams / Rock the Stage NYC

A simple demonstration of the power and range one can get with private singing lessons with me. Here I sing the high notes from Rob Halford of Judas Priest in the song “The Green Manalishi (with the two pronged crown) off “Killing Machine”. No strain, no constriction, just properly adducted head voice and tons of air velocity in the vocal tract. This is how Rock singing should be.

  1. The muscles are weak. Like lifting weights, it takes time and practice to
    build them up. Think of yourself as a “vocal athlete”.

  2. It takes a few months of practice to build it back up. Took me 2 hours a
    day for about 5 months (4-5 days a week). Just have to slowly build the
    strength back up.

  3. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC

    Yup. Slow build back up. This will help re-strengthen the muscles and help
    you reconnect to your muscles memory. I have found that coming back from a
    illness that affects my voice allows me a chance to work on some things
    have bother me about my voice.

  4. hi dude!!my favorite band is Stryper,have you ever heard of Michael
    Sweet?his high notes are amazing,he had a very high voice in the 80’s,he
    was a high tenor

  5. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC

    I’ve been seeing Stryper live since 1986. Michael can still hit those high
    notes.

  6. yeah dude,without a doubt!!i have seen many Stryper videos from 2003 until
    now and he can still do it,but you are a very good singer too man,you can
    sing high like Halford,the same notes

  7. Tyler Valentine

    So I can raise the pitch of my voice as much as I want to right? or do I
    have a limit? If I can what exercises should I do to raise my vocal range?
    #subscribed!

  8. Hey,Kevin.Sounds good,man.Got a question for ya.I have trained for a couple
    of years,but more of a classical style.My teacher left it to me regarding
    the Halford-type screams.She told me I sing the C over high A on the piano,
    even the D, so all is possible.Only thing is I lose the high screams when
    my voice warms up.Basically,I wake up singing like Gillan,and then warm up
    and sing the highest notes, but not sharply, not giving them that heavy
    metal sound, and losing the scream/power.Any ideas?

  9. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC

    the voice is capable of almost unlimited range but its not just as simple
    as “what exercises should I do”. A bunch of other things have to properly
    be in place before you try to extend range to a large degree – proper
    support, relaxed throat muscles, proper alignment of the vocal tract just
    for starters.

  10. I have the same exact problem… I lose all my “edge” in head voice once my
    voice has warmed up!!

  11. i am a huge Stryper fan,buddy!!so i want to know,what do you think of
    Michael Sweet,i think that he is better than many heavy metal singers,coz
    he had a very high voice,his vocal range was incredible,he could sing like
    a woman,i dont know anything about notes,but what do you think of Michael
    Sweet?

  12. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC

    Michael Sweet was one of my vocal heroes in the 80’s. Huge, powerful and
    bright tone with a wonderful sense of melody. He still sounds great 30
    years later thanks to some training and singing all the time.

  13. Awesome videos RTSNYC! My speaking voice sits in the range of bass-baritone
    (about F2) but it’s soft like lyric tenor (I’ve been mistaken for female a
    lot). My approx. chest range is from D2 to C5. Anything above that, I go
    into this strained belt sound thats really whiny and ringy and feels really
    heavy and I can’t get higher than F5 or so. Any idea of what I’m doing in
    terms of coordination? Any recommendations in general? Thanks!

  14. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC

    There’s no way to answer your question without hearing what you’re doing.
    But if you’re straining you’re too heavy go into head resonance.

  15. True. I looked in a mirror while just playing around with my voice and
    discovered that, when I try to go high, like into what I thought was head
    voice (because it wasn’t breathy), I discovered that back of my throat,
    right behind my uvula was closing up. Is this a habit I’ve maybe developed?
    Any tips on how to correct that? Thanks!

  16. hi buddy!,like i said before i am a huge Stryper fan,they are my favorite
    musicians,but i don’t know much about high notes,who do you think has the
    highest vocal range in metal,Michael Sweet,kiske,Geoff,Halford,Bruce and
    many others others?

  17. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC

    It would be between Sweet and Kiske. Halford tapped out around A5-Bb5.
    Geoff was a G5 guy. Bruce is a high belter to D5. Sweet can sing to C6
    easily – even today.

  18. I agree. Although, have you heard Michelle Luppi? I’ve heard him in
    Helloween’s Kiske era songs, singing covers, doing the highest notes like
    it’s nobody’s business. Just for studying you could hear some songs like
    Shades (aprox 4:54 .. is that belting? omg, I’ll shit myself if you tell me
    it is ) La Vita Fugge ( aprox 2:16 , God is Dead ( at the end of the song
    there is an awesome scream, that’s not belting right? ) Could you look into
    it, please? 🙂 He really amuses me.

  19. Mind Chemistry

    what about DLR? He did some amazing highs. More of a screech, but he was
    able to go from low to high like nobody’s business

  20. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC

    Vocal Fry super head. His trademark wail was normally around an F5-F#5. DLR
    is a baritone on the lower side but he has a really good high chest belt.
    The WHOLE reason VH played in Eb tuning was because DLR is a lower
    baritone.

  21. Mind Chemistry

    So is that a natural ability or can anyone achieve that with practice? I
    think it sounds pretty cool. Any tips on achieving that? I can do it for a
    few seconds sometimes by pushing my head voice up but then it subsides
    quickly. Also, is that what Brian Johnson of AC/DC employs? Thanks for the
    response.

  22. I have been surfing through singing videos and so far your singing voice
    sounds the most professional of all the ones I have heard so far. Since the
    early to mid 80s, I have been practicing singing like Ronnie James Dio,
    Geoff Tate, Bruce Dickinson, Steve Perry, Mickey Thomas, Lou Gramm, Steve
    Walsh, Paul Rodgers, Dennis DeYoung, Fee Waybill, Michael Sweet, and
    several others. So, I really enjoy hearing someone like you who can sing
    really well. 🙂

  23. Wow, very impressive. I mean, I can’t sing high note while my head is
    tilted down. But, but, you did it with ease while looking down the piano.
    How shall I practice to get this ability? All I can say is wow!!!

  24. Awesome bro !!! Would love to be able to sing like that…so excuse my
    massive ignorance , I know how to play guitar and a reasonable knowledge of
    music but is it possible you could train an average Joe like me who can
    *kinda* hold a tune and teach me to approximate actual proper singer like
    you do??? or do you just take an actual singer and polish their techniques?
    I mean is it possible ANYONE can sing?? dumb questions I know. ps I can
    learn songs on guitar by ear so my pitch is good at least

  25. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC

    well it depends on what you mean by “actual singer”. Anyone can learn to
    sing – but how far you go with it is up to the person. The voice you hear
    from me is many, many years in the making and I’m still working on it.
    Learning and maintaining the voice never ends.

  26. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC

    Hmm… it’s free and full of valuable information – and yet to still find a
    way to complain? I’d rather you just said “thank you” and went on your way.

  27. You’re right, my comment was a little harsh. My apologies. However, what I
    was trying to say still stands; I think it would really help to show the
    viewers what can be achieved with your recommended excercises by having a
    higher quality sound. I want to be able to really hear you sing. Thanks for
    the vid =)

  28. The intro music sounds like Slayer – Gemini intro.
    It was driving me crazy till I figured out where the Hell I heard that
    melody before.

  29. OZZYS VOCAL COACH GOES INTO DETAIL MORE. YOU FILL STOMACH WITH AIR N SING
    FROM DIAPHRAM< KEEPING STOMACH FIRM BUT NOT TO FIRM. THIS WAY YOU RETAIN MORE AIR N IT ISNT RELEASED ALL AT ONCE. YOU ALSO SING WITH AN OPEN THROAT WITHOUT STRAINING TO EXESSIVLY. RELAX FROM THE CHEST UP N BE CALM . ON MY DUTY OF 3 IN 1 GIG (ON GOOGLE) I DIDNT KNOW ANY OF THIS , BUT IT STILL TURNED OUT GOOD. PREPAIR FOR HEARTS OF SINGING VENGEANCE SOMETIME IN JULY. ALMOST READY TO DO IT ALL AFTER MONTHS OF SUCCESSFUL PRACTICE.

  30. elvis osmanovic

    dont they start at E4…take another listen i think it goes E4 F# G A4 …
    G5 – E5 for higher part

  31. When I first started voice lessons I told my teacher I wanted her to make me sound like my favorite tenor, Fritz Wunderlich, or even better, an R&B sounding Al Green, Sam Cooke, or Smoky Robinson.

  32. With only one lesson… or by accessing these four movies… you possibly can be on your method to a singing voice you never knew you had.
