Can You Sing a HIGH C Without Straining? If you didn't answer yes to this question, don't be dismayed. The people that can are seldom born with the talent to sing high notes. They've simply put a lot of time and effort into training their voice.
What's Their Secret? They know how to control the muscles they use when singing - and anyone can do it.
How Can I Learn? The easiest way is to take voice lessons and practice exercises designed to give you control over the muscles you use to sing with. Example: Try moving the middle toe on your right foot without moving the others. Can't do it? That's becuase you don't know how to control the muscle that moves your toe, even though you know exactly where the muscle is and what you would like it to do. You were born with the ability to move the muscle, but because you haven't practiced moving it in the right way it won't respond. Your voice works in the same way. All of the notes you sing are created by the interaction of the muscles used to control your vocal folds. You might want to sing a HIGH C without straining, but becuase you haven't trained these muscles to work together the right way you can't do it. When you try and sing high notes you strain and all you get for your effort is a sore throat. Follow my advice and you'll learn to sing high notes without straining, and produce a big sound that's powerful and comfortable.
