A Student Can’t Vocalise Any High Notes (Singing Teachers)
Hey everyone, just got a question for you all.
I have a 12 year old female student who comes for a lesson every week, she has been having lessons since March. When she started lessons I found that she cannot vocalise any high notes, it is just breath coming out. So I have been doing exercises to help develop her range and open up her throat to reach these notes. I’ve done these exercises with other students in the past who have trouble vocalising hight notes and we seem to get past the problem.
But I don’t seem to be getting anywhere! I can tell she practices, but she still can’t get any high notes – her voice literally doesn’t make any noise! It is like her vocal cords are not closing. She starts struggling to vocalise a pitch from A3. I asked her today if it hurts in her throat when she tries to sing high but she says it doesn’t, but she does bring her chin to her chest when her voice goes and patting her chest, like she is losing her voice.
What do you suggest I do? Is it possibly what you posted on here before Ruth about one of your students who you referred? What was that called?
It just sounds like her voice is hoarse and sore, but if there isn’t any pain, I’m not sure what it is? :/
