How to Sing Low Notes – For Guys & For Women – Sing Lower /
Learn how to sing low notes for guys and women (same principles apply!)

To learn how to sing low, it’s all about breath support and getting the resonance in your mouth. Most of the time, when we attempt to sing low notes, we have a tendency to shove our larynx or voice box down deeper into our throats which causes strain and tension. In this video, you’ll learn the healthy way to sing lower notes, which revolves around a warmup that will get you to mentally bypass your throat and vocal cords and pop the sound into your mouth, where it healthily “echoes” or resonates. A simple BWUH exercise allows you to sing lower than you thought possible! This time without the strain and without feeling like it’s choking your cords. Try it out and let me know what you think!


As a professional voice finder, it’s my sworn duty to teach you how to find your singing voice! Learning how to improve your singing voice is all about simple, achievable steps that make SENSE to you. All of us learn how to sing on our own timeline, and certain things will click more than others. But it’s important that YOU understand your voice more than anyone else — learning how to be a good singer is, in many ways, getting to know yourself 🙂 If you feel you don’t yet know how to sing like a pro, be patient — every baby step and daily practice session helps. (And I’ll keep posting new vids to help you!)

  1. Hey! Fel! I’ve been really getting into Owl City lately. I have seen a few
    of your videos, and took part/ or all of your free belting course. I have
    really improved with singing. But Im not sure if I am singing correctly. I
    sing keeping my law loose, using my breath to support my notes, (especially
    with lower notes) But another thing I’ve been doing to help me sing higher,
    Is by using the power of lower notes (or breath when you sing lower notes)
    to help me hit higher notes. (I saw your how to sing by Adele video.) So I
    guess my question would be how do I know Im singing the right way? I would
    also like to see a video on how to sing like Owl City. (He made a song
    called “Angels.” That I’ve been trying to sing.) I’ve been trying to
    picture my mouth on my belly button…. 🙂 But anyway, Owl City has a very
    different style of singing and a unique sound.

  2. thanks so much for posting this. this totally helped me figure out where
    the sound should because I was singing from the back of my throat and not
    being able to hit those notes. The boo-ap exercise help me figure out where
    my sound should be and now I can sing so much easier.

    WHAT!?! Litterally was trying to hit a note for hours then when i thought
    of my chin i hit it xD Thanks

  4. When I sing low, I think of myself as of a frog that breathes with moving
    the floor of its mouth 😀 (I’m female and can get to D3. For now ;)).

  5. When I get to a D3 and C3. I can’t even get lower than that anymore. When I
    was in my teens I could hit a B2 easily and I could even make it to a A2.
    Am I losing range or what? I didn’t really focus on singing low notes, will
    I be able to get those notes back?

  6. yay!!! I have a deep voice anyway, and after years of being told there was
    something wrong with me ( my range, at least in the morning is closer to
    baritone than contralto, and even during the day it’s pretty deep for a
    female) and having people always trying to get me to sing higher, I’ve
    finally embraced deep, and I’d love to extend my range down :)

  7. Thank you so much for this video! I’ve been trying to improve my low notes
    for a while. This is a really good video. I’m a soprano so I’m used to
    singing high notes. But after watching this video and trying the exercise I
    feel like I’m already able to sing lower than before. I’ll definitely be
    watching your other videos. :)

  8. Hi Fel!

    I really appreciate you putting this up (and all the other videos too). I
    have a question about this exercise.
    I sing Bass 2 in my choir and I have a lot of lower notes (usually not much
    lower than an E or so, which is comfortable). I started practicing voice
    techniques on my own this week, and during this exercise hit notes I didn’t
    know I could hit! I was able to sing an A1, and I’m happy to know those
    notes (C#2 through A1) are in my range.
    However, I definitely did the exercise incorrectly at least some of the
    time (I was pushing the larynx) because now my vocal cords are a little
    bothered. Do you have any more tips or cues for proper placement and making
    sure to be tension-free and healthy when singing in the lower range? I find
    imagery helps me a lot, and I really don’t want to hurt my voice

    Thank you!

  9. Thank you for posting this video! I’ve never any videos about singing
    lower, an as a baritone, I want to learn how to sing low, and high notes
    with efficiency, so thank you!

  10. I am a older bass whose tone is naturally deep and full (late night radio
    talking voice E2) when relax my entire resonance can be dark going down to
    g1 sound more like a Russian profoundo who sound like low end of a church
    organ the register tone is not typical sound of a bass. Head voice range F4
    .I tried to focus on my hard pallet and open mouth and a relax throat not
    tight.. I have tried every thing to lighten up , but it feels like strain
    imitating a tenor or a baritone. I do not push down I do like lifting and
    widen the soft pallet to project more of lower register to be heard farther
    out in the audience with out a mic. any help for this old bass to make
    every one happy.

    I came thinking about LOW notes, like D1 and around there. and if any body
    can find a video for males going through puberty and have a low voice like
    B1 that would be appreciated as im 13 and can go super low the lowest note
    i can hit being a Eb 1 and all the videos i find, there always so growley
    and just not good tone

  12. thanks for this video! it is quite helpful as i will be singing a male
    voice and it is really low so i needed to learn how to control my vocals.

  13. Dorina Cocka

    i have a problem with the low notes for example I sing Sam Smith lay me
    down and at the first lyrics i barely sing it the low notes

  14. Evan “MUTGeniusUltimate12th” Brown

    thanks Fel for the Video I Appreciate any Videos for Low Notes I’m Trying
    to do a Dude Perfect Singing Hello by Adele

  15. Thank you for this!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a B2-C5 range. I am useless with high
    notes, so I figured I’d focus on my strength: low notes.

  16. I’m a pretty bog-standard baritone with a reliable range of C#2-D4. After
    doing this for about 10 minutes, I extended it down to A#1 and had much
    more resonance. Thanks for this neat little exercise!

  17. Trevor Sedgwick

    I was trying to sing blue angle by Roy Orbison but I can’t reach the very
    last note were it goes blue angleeeeeeeeeee can you help?

  18. The lessons are always helpful. I am 79 and have just started singing
    again. I never felt that I was a singer but your lessons have improved my
    voice and my confidence. I’m getting good feed back, thanks to you.

  19. Adventure Time with Dan And Phil

    This lesson actually helped! I put actually because I’m sort of a bad
    singer XD I lost my voice at exactly December 13 2015, 2 days before I had
    choir XD

  20. Les Walking Dr. Musical Lover

    you helped me hit the low notes in empty chairs at empty tables, and I will
    forever be grateful.
