One of the most commonly asked questions is “I want to sing higher in my true voice, not in falsetto. I can sing high in falsetto but not in my true voice”. “How do I sing higher in my true voice?”

Hints to help you sing higher in true voice! The one big secret that you need to do is…….CRY!

You need to cry – You’ve heard a lot of your favorite singers’ “cry” whomever they may be. (E.g., Adele, Freddie Mercury, Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Bruno Mars). These artists are using a “crying technique or a sobbing sound within the scales and songs when singing higher” to sing very high in a true voice not in falsetto and not “Belt”.

Listen to your favourite contemporary artists sing higher. You’ll notice that when they sing higher they will be putting a crying or sob sound into their voice. On the other hand a lot of rock singers do not use this technique to make the sound, sound harder and more aggressive.

Some tips to help you sing higher in your true voice:

There are two ways that you can sing up high… You can “Belt” or you can “Cry”. 
Belting is a nice word for yelling. Belting is a dry sound that rock singers use a lot, there’s nothing wrong with it if you like the sound and as long as you’re not hurting your voice.

Sob/Crying is to sing up high in true voice with less energy with better technique.

This is the technique that you have to use to sing up higher… so start to sob. (Please refer to the scale that is demonstrated and played by Peter Vox on our YouTube channel The 5 Minute Singer with the same title as this blog) There are two ways you can sing higher notes – either by “belting” or by “crying”. Belting is yelling and is a dry sound that rock singers often use.

There’s nothing wrong with it if you like the sound and as long as you’re not hurting your voice. Sobbing/crying is a way to create a more emotional sound.

Singing up higher or using this crying technique is a slightly riskier and more dangerous way of singing (but a lot safer than belting) than singing comfortably in the middle or lower of your range.

Crying or singing up higher in your high range is equivalent to sprinting as a runner. Please make sure that when you were doing this crying technique within scales and songs you are raising or sliding to the first note and not attacking the note. If you attack the first note you may hurt your voice or cause vocal damage.


Take a proper diaphragmatic breath!

Firm your diaphragm and tight it about 60% on this first very top note that you’re going to hit. Keep your neck relaxed and smile a little. Keep your sounds coming forward. It is also a good idea that when you’re singing up higher in your register aim your sounds to the hard and soft palette so that you do not sound nasal.

If you get this technique down with proper diaphragmatic breathing whatever voice range you have, (Base, Tenor, Baritone, Soprano, Contralto, or Alto) you will be able to sing up higher with greater ease. I guarantee you, if you use this “crying technique” you will be able to sing an octave higher than what you can currently in true voice.

Singing in a higher register or using a crying technique is a slightly riskier way of singing than singing comfortably in the middle or lower part of your range. Crying or singing in your high range is equivalent to sprinting for a runner. Please make sure you are warmed up properly before attempting either of these techniques.
