• Can a beginner singer increase range by one octave?

    Hi, I am a 18 year old male and I began singing in early June. My vocal range is C2:F5 (with falsetto). When I started my comfort zone was around A2:C4. Now a month and half later I am about at G2:E4 (it takes a bit of straining but I can go up to F#5). Now, I am not really worried about the lower notes, but is it possible for me to hit a C5 without... show more

  • My vocal range and how to extend my comfort zone?

    Hi all, I am an 18 year old male who just started to sing. My vocal range is D2-F5. I've been told that my range is that of a high tenor. I was just wondering if my range is sufficient for singing some popular modern day music? Also, I have noticed that along with a vocal range comes a comfort zone; for me, it is from A2 - D4.

I was just wondering if my range is sufficient for singing some popular modern day music? Also, I have noticed that along with a vocal range comes a comfort zone; for me, it is from A2 - D4. Now, I am not looking to extend my lower comfort zone, but rather the high end. Are there any exercises that helps to extend my "comfort range" upward? I know that the Siren drill helps. I hope to extend my comfort zone to at least A4 - is that possible? I am sorry but I am rather inpatient, but I have been singing for about a month and a half and have quite enjoyed it.

  • What does my workout routine increase weight instead of cutting fat?

    Im 20, and I have been working out for 5 weeks. I've gained 5 pounds. Maybe its because I drink water more frequently. Nonetheless I go to the gym 7 days a week, an hour a day. I do about 10 minute warming up. 10 minutes High intensity continuous cardio (170+bpm) (100 calories). Then I do muscle resistance training for about 15 minutes(mainly... show more
    Im 20, and I have been working out for 5 weeks. I've gained 5 pounds. Maybe its because I drink water more frequently. Nonetheless I go to the gym 7 days a week, an hour a day. I do about 10 minute warming up. 10 minutes High intensity continuous cardio (170+bpm) (100 calories). Then I do muscle resistance training for about 15 minutes(mainly abs, pecs, shoulders, and bicep). I follow that up with 20 minutes of elliptical cardio workout (about 230 calories, 160bpm+). Then end with the same resistance routine. I know that I have started to lose fat, but I didn't expect to gain muscle mass that quickly. Is there a way cut down fat faster; i want to replace fat with muscles.(im not much of a bodybuilding, just want to look fit). My diet is pretty healthy - whole grain wheat, fat free milk and all that... Oh genetics-wise, I have no relatives that are even remotely close to obesity, so i dont think its a genetic factor Maybe five weeks is too short of a time to analyse anything, but I am just anxious and want your opinion on things.
