How To Sing Higher: The Challenge
One of the biggest challenges when it comes to singing higher is doing it in a way that protects your voice. Singing higher or trying to take the voice higher is CHALLENGING and our first instinct when it doesn’t come out the way that we want may be to
Repeat the same thing over and over again really fast, continuing to sound worse and get more frustrated (this is a normal thing that frustrated singers do - you are not alone!)
But these are huge mistakes because while trying harder or pushing more USUALLY works for most things unfortunately...this does not work for singing. Actually, it usually puts more pressure on your voice and makes it even harder to hit those notes, sing in tune, or sound good.
Here are some signs that you are overusing or hurting your voice when you sing.

When you come down to your chest voice after singing higher it feels weird - maybe weaker or just “off.”

It becomes difficult to access or sing in head voice or chest voice.
You sound like a dinosaur that has been smoking (seriously, you’ll know what I’m talking about if/when this happens)...if this is you STOP singing and speaking immediately.
