Famous in the opera industry, Operatic Baritone singer Fredrick Redd has worked with some of the best voice teachers and coaches in the world. Redd stated, each singer is born with unique physical limitations. A bass singer should never expect to comfortably hit the notes of the tenor range because his instrument is not designed to sing in that range. A soprano will have difficulty at the lowest notes sung by a mezzo-soprano or alto. A singer can make the most of their born physical limitations as follows:
- Developing proper technique. Safely and comfortably increase your singing range by developing proper techniques. There should never be any feeling of discomfort or pain when singing or vocalizing. If a singer feels pain or discomfort, he or she should stop singing immediately. Pain is always a sign of unhealthy singing techniques. Once a good technique is established it is possible to gradually increase one's range through vocal exercises.
- Warm up exercises. The signer must slowly warm up the voice just as the athlete must warm up their muscles. Scales, tongue trill, and lip trills are most effective. The range can be increased by warming up the voice and slowly increasing the range over time. The runner cannot go from running 1-mile events to a marathon overnight. It takes months and sometimes years of training for a runner’s body to allow him or her to run long distances. It’s the same with the voice you build it over time slowly and carefully.
- Good Health. A singer must take care of their instrument, by watching their diet, getting plenty of excercise, rest and drinking lots of water.
- Patience. Increasing your range takes time and patience, it doesn't happen overnight and sometimes can take months or even years to develop correctly.
