Is it at any point useful?

I find that when I sing quietly, I can't hit the high notes. Or is that because I haven't warmed up enough?

Thing is, it's the only way I can practice singing at home, so I'd rather do it, then no singing at all, but I feel as if I can't get the "full practice" because I have to sing quietly.

Yea, if you don't sing loud enough, you can't reach the high notes.

The way to practice is loud, if you practice quietly you won't get good results.
If you are gonna sing loudly, you have to practice loudly.

Some singers put the mic further away from them when they sing a "extremely high" note.
That's because the sound comes out a lot louder.

Well yeah. At the moment, I'm learning some Staind songs, and I guess I have to sing loud really?

Is it in any way a confidence thing, or just because you don't want to upset whoever you live with? Because confidence is a killer.
Hahahahahahahahahah hahahaha har har har

It's mainly because I don't want to upset the people I live with. It's a host family, as I'm studying abroad.

You only have to sing really loudly if your vocal range doesn't match the song's.

You can always change the key to a range that suits you more, so you can sing comfortably.

Theoretically, anyone can sing any song if it's on the proper key.

It's not a confidence thing, you really have to put more power to reach higher notes.

If you practice at a volume different from how you perform, you will get less benefit.

It's not just the notes. A lot of singing technique is stuff that you need to learn to control which your body intuitively wants to do diffrently at different volumes. It's an issue.
