Tips on How to Sing Higher Notes

Warm-up

Perform warm ups before practice. Vocal practice is similar to a workout. You have to give your muscles warm-ups so as not to strain them. Doing warm-ups will also help you measure your voice range.

Breathe from your diaphragm

When you are training your singing voice, you need to put weight on learning how to breathe from your stomach and not from your chest.

Use a slow but steady pace

When practicing your high notes, start in the mid-range and then practice singing higher and higher. Practice your scales going from the low note to the high note and then back again.
