Question
hi, I want to know how many notes should one vocalise up to for their last performing high note to be stable, and how many notes downward should one vocalise for the last performing low note to be stable.

Answer
Hi Feliciano,

I would vocalize as high and as low as you can.  I would vocalize as high as I could - usually a high D or Eflat and as low - down to low F/E.

But I did have a pretty good high D - but would only use it sparingly.

So just vocalize (or have your teacher vocalize you) were you can.

Best,

Pamela
