Freya’s Singing Tips – How to sing high notes in 3 different ways


Hi, this is Freya with your next singing tip. Everybody wants to be able to sing high notes, right? But there are three different ways
that you can sing high notes. If you want to find out more, stay tuned! When you sing a song, it usually consists of low notes, middle notes and high notes. However, the
high notes are the ones that can really show you off as a singer. But you want the high notes to be in good
taste. You want them to reflect the style you’re singing in, and you also want them to convey the feelings that you’re trying to bring across when you’re singing a song, right? So, in order to do that, we actually
have three different ways to sing those high notes. Number one: head voice. Now, the head voice in not typically used in pop music a lot. It’s something that you associate more with an opera singer. For example “Nessun Dorma”. Now, usually this is not used in pop music, however, Tarja of Nightwishgh (music group) she uses that lot because she does
crossover. But usually we don’t want to use that in pop music. So there’s actually two ways That we mainly use to sing high notes. The first one is the mixed register. If you haven’t watched my video about mixed register, you could click on the link right here to check it
out. I’m gonna be using Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking out Loud” to
demonstrate to you the difference in the different registers. If I sing the
high notes in the mixed register, this is what it sounds like: Now you noticed that the low notes I sang in chest voice, and the high notes I just switched over to mixed register
which gives it really a kind of soft feeling. And it’s a little bit more emotional and intimate and if that’s what you
want to bring cross, that’s a good way to do it. Now, if you want to come across a little stronger and just really shout it out, you could do it all in chest voice and the top, of course, in a belting. And
if you have not watched a video about the five best exercises for belting, you could check
the video out by clicking the link but here. Now, this
is what this passage would sound like: This was more belting. You see, it sounds
totally different and just depending on what feeling I
want to convey, you pick what voice color you want to use, and the cool thing
is it’s totally up to you. Now, if want to do some fill-ins and some
improvisation, you could also use some head voice. For example, in Gospel we use it a lot. You could just do anything you want to
do. But the cool thing is, you have this huge range now. At the top you could do the belting, and if
you want to go even higher, you could use your head voice. If you want to come across kind of soft but still sing high notes, you could use the mixed register. I
think it’s really awesome what you can do with your voice. You can’t really do all these things with a lot of other instruments. The voice is really an instrument that has an incredible multitude of colours. And I think that’s just awesome. I hope these tips helped you a little bit. I hope you got really motivated to sing a really beautiful song now with high notes and try out what I just told you. Have a wonderful day! Check out my next
video. It’s coming up next Friday. Have an
awesome day, always keep on singing and always keep a song in your heart. Bye!

Hi Freya this is Aslam m a singer perfrmer frm India ( Mumbai ) im trained in classical but i always face the throat problem that is phrynjitis n i have to take medicines for dat so hw do i overcome dis plz help ❗ i practise daily with harmonium and guitar

I have to adjust my brain sometimes while listening to your singing, because your "chest" sounds like my mix, and your "mix" sounds like my head! Lol.

Hi i want to be a rnb singer but my voice is a but deep can i practice and make it more sound like rnb?

This is awesome ! πŸ˜€ Thank you πŸ˜€ I like how you're really good at teaching and an awesome motivator at the same time. πŸ™‚

I love you (1st watched video) I dont have to pay anything, dont have to join anything or give my contact info, you give examples and multiple videos (unlike everybody else here) Subscribed (thanks)

I think that was awesome! Wish you would teach that at koocam. I would definitely pay to learn that from u and get suitable tips.

If you want to know_how to sing high you can use_another resource_I also_found helpfull_for this – GrathawFastSingExpert – if anyone wants_to know more search_on_gogle.

the greatest success that i've had was with the Bens Singer Blog (i found it on google) without a doubt the no.1 method i've tried.

I found this incredibly interesting to note. I probably sing more like Tarja as my voice seems to have only two colors right now: operatic and Broadway. The Broadway can deviate to normal belting (which I do poorly in my opinion) and something akin to what Julie Andrews used to do.

I made it kinda simple for me.
I can sing a f5 easily in the Ariana style ( my highest is c6 in Ariana style)
And I can go above in Sia style xD.
But ty this was helpful!

You are a brilliant instructor / tutor Freya. Your voice and exceptional skill getting across what you teach is to be commended. Thank you for your enjoyable videos which I find first class. No matter what standard of singer one is we always learn by listening to others too.

I want to learn to pitch the phantom of the opera without hurting my vocals ..i notice I get pains after singing it

I can reach high tones while like practicing them but not while singing a song,I can't reach em' smoothly
Is there any exercise or something that i can do for that?

Your mixed voice sounds like head voice and your high chest voice sounds like mixed voice. At least that's what I've been taught. Now I'm confused.

Am i the only one who thinks the head voice and the mixed voice sounded the same. The only different was vibratos.

Voce di chiusa, belting, falsettone, mixed voice, head voice, falsetto, whistle register. I count 7 different ways of singing high notes πŸ˜›

Wow thank you for sharing 😍😲😲😲😲😲😲😲 πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ’ŸπŸ’ŸπŸ’ŸπŸ’ŸπŸ’Ÿ
