What is the best time to learn how to sing low notes?
Because the majority of vocalists customarily ignore them, it is a good question. Low notes are not that respected as the high ones. Their singing techniques neither. Why is it so? Obviously, the low tones are not sounds that singers can show off with. The greatest recognition among the audience is always a high and clear voice. Principally, we rate the artist by his upper scale tones. The low sung notes are the utter opposite. They sound dark, deep, and they vibrate. And the singers principally treat them as something rather obligatory than pleasurable. Moreover, the low notes may be insidious. Frequently, a large number of vocalists fail on them at the beginning of the song. And even perfect hitting the highest notes does not mean that we can cope with the lowest too. We can find that edgy note that can spoil the whole effect in almost every song. So, how can we tame them and be a complete singer?
Learning and mastering singing the low notes. Better sooner than later
So when should we start to learn how to cope with these lowest sounds in our register? The answer is as straight as possible. At the same time as the high ones. Decidedly, well-planned singing lessons should include the practice of all kinds of sounds. Moreover, if we think about our voice professionally, we should consider hiring an experienced vocal coach. Undoubtedly, he is the person who will ensure a balanced training of our entire vocal scale. But even alone, we can significantly improve our singing skills. Although it is tempting, we decidedly should not focus only on singing the high tones. The key to the perfect performance of the low notes is two things. First, we never should drop our larynx. However, this is a common issue connected with this subject. And a common mistake as well. Solving this problem is a must. The second thing is keeping our larynx resting and balanced during singing.
Lower in the morning, higher in the evening
This is a unique observation connected with the performances. And also a phenomenon that every singer surely noticed before. Biologically, we sing better the low notes in the morning. And the higher ones in the evening. Why is it so? The whole issue is associated with muscles, which the vocal cords, of course, are. They relax when we sleep and activate through daily activities. Then, they simply release their tensions. Thanks to this, we can precisely train our low tones in the morning. The vocal folds work heavily and can shorten more easily. Later, in the evening, they are more enlivened by all day’s usage. Overall, that is a relief because the performances and concerts generally take place at the end of the day. Fortunately, it is also a nice coincidence that we can utilize to practice our low notes. The exercises in the morning allow us to hear the vibrations of our vocal cords better. And hitting them more precisely.
