HOW TO BUILD TWO OCTAVES OF SINGING RANGE

 

You’ve seen a bunch of insane claims out there;

“Master Singing In 30 Days!”

“Sing Better Than Anyone Else!”

“Sing Like You Speak!”

Can I be absolutely frank for a moment? It’s all bullshit.

None of that crap is real.

It’s just marketing hype.

It’s designed to sell courses and lessons to you – but not designed to give you realistic expectations for what to expect as you learn how to sing.

It’s about the money.

It’s about SO many things.

But I’ll tell you what those claims AREN’T about, even in the slightest: Your Voice.

So let’s talk a real goal that you can work towards right now – whether it takes a week, or a month, or three months, or 12 months; it really depends on how you apply yourself to the process and how dedicated you are to seeing real progress in your singing.

Let’s build two octaves of range in your singing voice.

I know I know – people are out there promising you magic unicorns and three legged mermaids; and I’m giving you some basic, unexciting goal that sounds boring as frog.

But an alarm bell just went off in your head, I can hear it – “Holy shit, I totally CAN’T connect my registers….”

We’re talking connected range – from your lowest notes to your highest notes.

A great sounding range of two octaves, not just a pushy squeak or flip.

No breaks, no flipping, no cracking – two legitimate octaves of singing range that you can use to sing real songs.

It’s easier than you think to build two octaves of range. In a nutshell, there’s really three steps;

  1. Take one octave of chest voice
  2. Take one octave of head voice
  3. Put ’em together

You might laugh, but I’m being absolutely serious.

I bet you’ve been watching YouTube videos looking for the next best thing, the newest marketing, the most exciting videos – the advanced technique, the singing secret, the insider knowledge that’s going to help you get that extra few notes, get through that show and sing like a pro.

But you never find it.

It never works.

You feel excited for about three seconds, you might even pull the trigger on a course – but you always end up exactly where you started; with no high range, a sore voice and as confused as ever.

But while you’re looking for that next crazy thing – the compression, the cry, the edge, the modes, curbing, glottal shock and laryngeal tilt; you’re overlooking the absolute most basic of vocal fundamentals:

Connecting chest and head voice.

Balance the TA and CT muscle so you ‘slide’ between your registers without flipping and breaking.

Basically, you’re trying to run before you can walk.

So I’m setting a simple goal for you; connect chest and head voice so you’ve got an octave of chest and an octave of head voice with no break between the two.

In an anatomical sense, absolutely EVERY singer out there in world, every voice, ever person has the physical ability to connect chest and head voice. It’s a scientific fact that you have a vocalis muscle, and a cricothyroid muscle – and you can learn to use them at the same time to make that physical connection between chest voice and head voice.

I know what you’re about to say: “Oh, but my voice is different”

But I’m sorry to say, cupcake – your voice really isn’t special.

You don’t lack those two muscles, otherwise, you’d be unable to breathe, unable to speak and you’d be dead.

Are you dead?

No?

So, you’ve got a vocalis and a cricothyroid – and you CAN learn how to use them to connect chest and head voice.

Put all that other crap aside, all the marketing hype, all that “open throat” shit (La Gola Aperta/The Open Throat really means “The throat without obstruction” in a literal sense, not physically opening your throat like you’re ripping open a bag of crisps) – and set yourself the goal of connecting chest and head voice.

It probably won’t sound world class.

It might be light.

It really won’t be the most impressive sounding thing in the world.

But it will be tangible progress, and you’ll be using your voice the way it’s really designed.

We’re not belt-monsters designed to yell at the top of our lungs.

We’re not the hulk.

We have a specific mechanism built to be used in a specific way – and you’re currently not using it correctly.

So let’s take that octave of chest, and octave of head – and learn to put ’em together as your immediate goal over the next few days, next few weeks and next few months.

You can buy me a beer when you realise you’ve now got two octaves of connected range – maybe even more.

But most importantly, you’ll realise that singing is actually very EASY – you’re just not approaching it in the right way.

Now, at this point you’re probably expecting me to give you a link to a connection tutorial, or a mixed voice video, or a vowel modification lesson – but you’re smarter than that.

You deserve better than a three minute video followed up by calls to buy my course.

I’m going to GIVE you something much better.

  1. I really like this email. I own a number of courses, and have taken skype lessons with four teachers – all of whom sang great, but never got me there. I believe I’ve got a lot of tension due to emotional stress, and that might be getting in my way. For a few years I’ve put down the goal, but I’d like to give it a try again, because it will allow me so many more possibilities for writing songs. I’ll look forward to seeing the guides.

  2. You could have totally just sent me this, I think I have 2 octaves connected already but they could always be more connected. Love your work as always!
