i have been practicing singing lately and when i go for high notes it is like my throat is constricting and the higher i go the more it consticts.is there any suggestion on how i can keep my throat from constricting(closing)when going for high notes.

See a vocal coach. If you keep on doing what you are now you will end up at some point with throat polyps.

Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts. Full breathing, warm up exercises, keeping an open throat. One specific tip I have is to have your hand out in front of you facing away from you, shaped like a C. When it comes to the high note, rock the C back (just tilt it) at the same time as you sing the high note.

This should help you not to pinch. But, as noted in the previous post - we're really entering a vocal coach kind of specialty area here...
