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.

Songs of Russian emigration, or, Russian song in exile

Already in 1919, the exodus of Russians from Russia began. The country has left several million people. The centers of Russian scattering around the world were Istanbul, and Prague, and Berlin, and Paris, and even Harbin. The first wave of emigration was extremely talented. Still – after all, in fact, almost the entire “silver age” emigrated. It is blasphemous to draw parallels between the fate of those who remained and those who left – who, they say, was harder? Emigration is always a misfortune. The poet and critic G. Adamovich, reflecting on the psychology of emigration, came to the conclusion that the exile does not feel the people behind him, he is doomed to fill the resulting void with himself, alone. It is gratifying that many had the spiritual potential and the “gold mines of nostalgia”. Continue reading
