Please don't do this. Smiling adds unnecessary tension, and honestly, it just makes you look ridiculous.

As the others have said, anybody can sing high, it's just a matter of blending chest and...

I doubt that.

The TONE of high notes might sound falsetto-ish, minus the breathy sound, but true falsetto lacks depth and power. Even a trained falsettist won't be able to cut through distorted...

Wait, what!? I say "it's not falsetto" and link to data that shows it isn't, and you can say "it is" and be right? No.

I dare you to go say "it's falsetto" to the guys on the SSO forums. They're...

Tenors can't even hit "tenor high notes" in chest voice :haha: Most of them use mixed voice (all-around resonance with a head voice coordination) or head voice.

Since this technique goes deeper...

Not at you, just the typical "The range you have is the range you were born with" phrase that I hear so much from opera singers. :p:

Speech Level Singing

It's a modern approach to the voice, and isn't based off opera technique too heavily (for once). The whole point of it was to sing without any tension on high notes, but along...

I mostly agree with you, but the above quote depends on which technique you pull your definitions from. In opera, your voice is always considered to be mixed, while in modern approaches, the "mixed...

Good question. I only know how to make it brighter and thinner.

Edit: Actually, lowering the larynx could help, if you haven't tried that already.

I still say to get a at-home-study-course if you can't find a teacher that studies the same technique as you, though.

So untrue. Every vocal lesson I've had was completely unproductive, while I erased my first break on my own.

You can gently use vocal fry on a low note, then raise the pitch for a while. When you're in vocal fry, your cords are so loose the phlegm just loosens off. After it's loose, just gently cough.

That's what happens the first few times you tap into a pure head voice. Your body isn't use to your head having a crazy amount of resonation yet.

Good luck and Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm assuming that 4G is your break point? If so, then you would be a soprano (I think). Soprano's usually have their first break around the 4G-4Aish area.

I THINK you might be an octave off somehow. As a tenor, I can only hit an A2 at that lowest, and that's still not usable in song. I couldn't imagine a girl singing strong notes lower then me. ...

At 16, most people's voices are done getting lower, and start to get stronger and richer instead. If you keep vocalizing, your range will get higher, not lower.

And for a brighter, thinner sound, you need to develop a mix of head voice and chest voice.

More chest resonance = thicker, darker, fuller sound
More head resonance = thinner, brighter, lighter...
