Amongst the vast range of vocal works, you will find high notes sung in most of the wonderful, heroic, powerful, lofty and passionate musical performances. It’s the high notes that bring them their real greatness. Such notes often appear in the climaxes of musical works and inspire the emotions of all who hear them.
Audiences love to listen to high notes and singers like to produce them, so this ideal quirk makes singing high notes hugely desirable all round!
Singing high notes could be described as almost instinctive and is indeed within the human nature. Throughout the world, there will be people of all backgrounds, including native minorities from different nations, who sing high notes in the most passionate manners when their emotions are excited. Letting out feelings via high-note vocals is a universal form of expression.
Whatever the reasons may be, it’s true to say that people who enjoy learning to sing are usually in favor of high-note singing. This phenomenon not only occurs in singers who are in the low voice group but also exists for those already in the high voice group as well. However, it is extremely dangerous for anyone to desperately shout high notes. People are often misled by the thought that the higher the notes they’ve reached by forced straining, the more success they have achieved. Without basic foundation and mastering of the correct singing skills of how to sing high notes, however, this shouting method does much more harm than good!
The singing of high notes actually belongs in the advanced stage of vocal training. There is a lot of confusion surrounding this area of singing and too many people tend to rely on their own methods, or blindly imitate their singing idols to produce high notes with uncontrolled, indiscriminate shouting, causing a lot of negative consequences.
Many people have suffered severe vocal deficiency.
Although I have rich knowledge and experience in the area of singing high, I do not actually advocate that people go ahead and sing notes that exceed their ability, nor do I advocate that people sing high notes frequently without the groundwork of knowing how to sing them correctly. Besides, high notes are not all there is to the average vocal composition. The performance of a piece of vocal work is determined by many factors; it should be comprehensive and all-rounded in nature, delivering various aspects of voice to the audience’s ear.
Nevertheless, singing beautiful and enchanting high notes is still a most stirring idea and is one to be encouraged. But being able to sing them well requires training in order to understand the right method for how to sing high notes.
