Question by Kenzie: 4.5 octave range, difficulties with high F break note?
i have a 4.5 octave range (about a c3 to a g6). my problem is my break note, which is about a high g or f#. i have difficulties with it because i can’t sing exactly on it (as is true with most break notes…) i can switch between registers, but have trouble going up and down in a scale right on that note. i have had no formal vocal training. please help! i need to work through this break.

I’d suggest just going over and over it again and again. When you come to that one note, sing it over and over, just that note and the few surrounding it. I find coming down easier, but do both equally. Also, using lip trills to work through problem notes is a good help, it regulates your air flow, and your problem could be with lack of air, or too much air.
