Q. Can You Help Me Increase My Range?

A. One of the most frequently asked questions when a new student approaches me about vocal lessons is, Can you increase my range? And my answer is always confidently,Yes!

Without even knowing the person, if they are asking that question, then there is something they don’t yet know about their own ability, and I know I can give them the knowledge and the training to solve their own mysteries about their voice. It’s terribly exciting to see the light go on in each persons eyes as they realize their new potential.

I have figured out the logical process for success for increasing your range and I want to show it to you. The first step is getting one’s natural falsetto and chest voices healthy and strong. That alone will result in a growth of range in those registers that is anatomically and easily attainable. It’s a matter of a proper warm up, the right exercises and correct execution. It’s optimal for both registers to be equally healthy as they work in support of each other.

Next is the ability to make the smooth transfer from one register to the other with no audible break. Learning the muscles that shift in the larynx through the break and utilizing the abdominal muscles, etc., that support the shift.

Last is the knowledge and training of the passagio. The passagio is the hardest vocal technique to master and not everyone is able to grasp it. It takes dedication and proper training to get it down and not over work your vocal mechanism to the point of any vocal fatigue. However, if you can master your passagio, you can absolutely bridge the gap between your chest and your head voice in a full belt and feel as if you are flying while you’re singing and can sing anything!
