What makes “High Notes” High?
Is it a ladder we climb, step-by-step on our way to Mount Everest to get to that “one more” elusive note?
I am going to suggest something to you that may sound crazy, but it’s true.
In many sports (and singing is like a sport), it’s not how we are able to “muscle” our way to the top.
Let’s take golfing, for example:
You have the little guy who is able to hit a golf ball 200 yards further than the big muscle guy who tries to kill it with his club.
The little guy makes it look so effortless.
In soccer, Lionel Messe is only 5′ 7″, and yet he is able to kick further and often times run faster than players who have a whole foot of height on him.
This has to do with the “snap” or “spring” of his step and kick. This is true for the golfer and even the runner as well.
So it is true with the voice.
It’s not that we “power ” or muscle our way to high notes. It’s that we understand how to leverage our technique, like the wrestler who is able use his leverage to take down someone 100 pounds greater than he.
Once we understand that our voice is a muscle, and it works in a similar way, we can use our technique and leverage of other parts of the body, like diaphragmatic support, correct vowel modifications, and release valves (relaxation responses) to help us achieve our ultimate goal.
I hope you enjoy and benefit from my life’s experiences as the “vocal athlete” who has seen, first hand, what it takes to accomplish this.

““It’s awesome. The private sections of the forum are worth the price of admission alone. I struggled with 2 different tertiary (university Level) level teachers (6 months each about 8 years ago) telling me my voice just wouldn’t be able to do what i wanted to be able to do and even if it could, the material i wanted to be able to sing would be too ‘Dangerous.’ Absolute rubbish. If you do the work thats laid out in this course, you are golden, I started in March Last year struggling to hit the E4 note in ‘Under the Bridge’ chorus now I can sing this stuff:
Honestly man, you are not going to find a bad review here. The course and this forum completely demystifies every single aspect of great singing. Just be prepared to do the work.”
