How to increase your voice range?

Each vocalist dreams of having a wide range of working voices. But not everyone can use professional methods to achieve beautiful voices in any part of the range and try to expand it independently at the expense of health. To do this correctly, the vocalist needs to follow certain rules. VOICE POSSIBILITIES AND CONTRACTOR’S AGE The range of voice varies throughout life. Even for talented children, it is much narrower than that of an adult vocalist with average abilities, so expanding it to 7–9 years is useless. The fact is that in young children, the vocal cords are still being formed.

To get a beautiful sound at this age and try to expand the range artificially is a waste of time and energy, because the child’s voice is very fragile and it’s easy to harm the wrong exercises. In the process of singing, its range itself expands, without additional effort. It is best to start active exercises to expand it after the end of young adolescence. After 10-12 years, voice formation reaches the active phase. At this time, the chest expands, the voice gradually begins to acquire its adult sound. The first stage of transitional age is approaching, in some children (especially boys), a mutational or pre-mutational period. Continue reading

How to tune the piano yourself, if 100 km from you there is no tuner?

How to tune a piano? Each owner of an instrument asks this question sooner or later, because a fairly regular game knocks his system in a year; after the same time, the setup becomes literally necessary. In general, the longer you put it off, the worse for the instrument itself. Piano tuning is certainly a must. The point here is not only an aesthetic moment, but also a pragmatic one. Incorrect tuning significantly affects the pianist’s musical ear, wearying and dulling it, and also interfering with the correct perception of notes in the future (you have to put up with dirty sound), which threatens professional unsuitability. Of course, the use of the services of a professional tuner is always preferable – self-taught people often use insufficiently high-quality instruments, or even knowing how to tune a piano, they are simply careless about work, which entails corresponding consequences. However, in some cases, calling a professional is not possible, but tuning is still necessary. Continue reading
