Genetic differences allow some people to master the technique very quickly while others can take a long time. Some singers, like Noodles from the band THE OFFSPRING and Melissa from DREAM have picked up a lot of notes fast. I often have singers get six or seven notes in the first half hour. Others take several years to realize the same achievement. It doesn’t matter how long it takes, but rather how consistently you practice the exercises. People who don’t quit and keep at it always get it. The average range increase for singers who train with me is seven notes.
If you have a healthy set of vocal cords you can learn to sing a HIGH ‘C’ without straining, but not without working. It’s all about muscle control, and to develop your vocal cords, which are muscles, you’ve got to work them. For those who work at it, being able to sing high notes without straining is typically one of the more easily obtained facets of becoming a good singer. With good training, you might get a great range developed in a few months and spend the rest of your career as a singer working on the tough parts; pitch accuracy, tone, and style.
