How to sing high notes is one of the most requested techniques to learn by new Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy vocalists. The Ken Tamplin Vocal Method is the most powerful singing method to apply when learning how to sing high-notes. Speech Level Singing will never be able to compete with the KTVA Open Throat Technique with regards to power, range and pitch – especially when singing high notes – and we have to do a lot of UN-training of bad SLS habits.

In order to sing high notes, it is vital that you grow the upper mid-voice first – this part of your voice MUST be strengthened first in order to be able to MAINTAIN high range singing. If you just start belting high notes without properly developing your upper mid voice, you run the real risk of permanently damaging your voice.

It also important to understand the concept of over compressing air when singing high notes.

Open throat singing technique provides the diaphragmatic support mechanism needed to sustain high range singing, while providing release valves to release and relieve tension allowing the voice to “relax” into that “money note” rather than squeezing and straining to get there.
