Hi there, Roger Burnley, vocal coach here in Hollywood, California. Now, I'm going to talk about a question I get a lot, is how do I change my vocal range? Well, first of all, you're not really changing your vocal range. What you're doing is actually opening it up. Your natural body will have certain notes, when we talk about range, that's from the lowest notes that you would be able to hit or reach. To the highest notes that you will be able to reach, depending on how your body is built. Now, the problem is that most people don't feel like they have much range, sometimes. Is because they are actually stopping the range that they would get. And again, the whole key is to one singing all the time, where you're keeping your larynx or you voice box more relaxed and in place. And allowing, this is the very important part, allowing just your vocal chords to change to create different notes. As you get used to that, your body, your range will expand. And that, you're changing it, because your voice is your voice. But what you are doing, is expanding and what you're expanding, is what you're able to reach. Now, I'm going to show you something on an exercise on an O here. O is one of those sounds that can give us so many different problems. Because a lot of times it'll have us kind of fall too far back in our throat, or tighten up and all of that. So, let's just say, you're going to practice, trying to create this O, in a very easy way. As you go through tis several times, you'll find that over time, you will start to expand your vocal range, okay. I'm just allowing the chords to change, not pushing with my body. One of the other things that will help you, especially in doing this, I gave you a difficult one. Is to feel that you're always keeping the sound up here, letting it go of it very easily. As your body gets used to this, you'll see, your has a memory. It'll start to develop this new memory and over time, you'll gain more and more of your range. Okay, again, this is Roger Burnley, vocal coach in Hollywood, California, showing you how to expand your vocal range.
