I sing good falsetto high notes but i dont really like it bc i see people in musicals reaching high voice when screaming with their chest voice when singing.. Idk if they mix it or what but i cant connect my chest voice with my falsetto without sounding horrible.. And i cannot reach high notes with my chest note.. What can i do to train or learn to reach high notes with falsetto?? I do not have a teacher ..im a girl (i know theres technically no falsetto for girls but i feel like its a falsetto since its not my voice)
Also, are you supposed to sing with your own voice in high notes or can u just falsetto it? Thanks! I know i wrote a lt but yeah.. Please someone with knowledge or experience in singing.. Thank youuu.
Sorry, but THE ONLY SAFE way to learn the correct singing techniques & to improve properly IS to take OFFLINE face-to-face singing lessons with a fully trained vocal teacher (in case you do not have a teacher yet)! The teacher HAS TO BE in the same room with you, so that he/she could give you proper feedback.
Please do NOT rely on any dodgy web tutorials because that way you can misunderstand things VERY EASILY and develop bad habits, hoarseness, vocal nodules and other nasties IN NO TIME, and even though you would sound good! It is always much wiser to invest a little bit of your money/time to face-to-face lessons rather than wasting the same amount of money (or even more!) to frequent ear-nose-throat specialist visits due to aforementioned problems, so please reconsider this. If you can't afford vocal lessons, then joining a choir is the only SAFE alternative option. And believe me, but even MANY of those who have music as their hobby DO take lessons as well!
Always remember to warm up your voice properly, but please know your limits and don't overdo your voice! Remember the diaphragmatic support, do not strain your throat too much! Also, remember good body posture!
Avoid fizzy drinks (burp danger), dairy products (mucus risk), caffeinated products (coffee & tea included, they dry up your throat) and spicy food (irritation risk)! You can consume these things, but NEVER before singing!
Do NOT shout, yell, scream nor otherwise abuse your voice AT ANY TIME! Also, please respect your vocal range; if your teacher says you are, say, more of an alto (baritone if you are male), then you ARE more of an alto (baritone).
DO NOT try to imitate anyone famous, that will usually give you just bad habits and even damage your throat. You are YOU and your voice is unique, so please learn to cherish that. The world does NOT need copycats.
Do NOT sing, whisper, shout, yell nor scream if having a sore throat/cold/flu, Also, do speak as little as you can if you have flu/cold/sore throat!
Remember to drink at least 2 litres of room-temperature still water every day, not just during singing days!
Smoking is a big no-no, as is inhaling secondhand smoke. Also, avoid staying in dusty and/or moldy environment.
Are there trainers that train in voice acting as well as singing? And about how much do they charge??
There are singing teachers, who are really necessary for training you to use your whole voice, to project and increase your vocal range in general, and all good actors take singing lessons.
But to do voice acting you really need to train as an actor – that's what most successful voice actors do. And you'd do that by joining a good acting school and attending at least weekly for a few years.
The prices vary – you'd have to do your own research wherever you live.
I have no singing voice, and I never had one. I want to be able to sing, because my mom banned me from scream singing. I love bands like silverstien, and slipknot, where there is screaming and singing.
I want to know if I can alter my voice through training so that I can be able to sing.
(also, I am in the stages of puberty, and my voice just deepened a few months ago, so I guess this is the best chance I'll get)
Have you ever recorded yourself? I don't think it's possible just to train yourself without a real natural singing voice though however.
