I'm a person more into pop music that has very high belts so I know I chose the best vocal course and I'm glad I found this. Anyway, Ariana Grande has a very nice singing voice but does she have good technique? In the 1st video below she belts an Eb5 (2:40) and the 2nd video she does the same note (2:40) but she seems to be straining by putting her head up and breath control issues on the 2nd video. I don't expect you guys to watch the whole video if you don't want to but just go to 2:40 on both videos and see. ON the second video you can even see her struggling and couldn't sustain the note any longer.
Then on this other video, she belts a G#5 at 2:43! But she seems to tilt her head up and to me, it seems pinched. And if you continue to watch the video after 2:43 she keeps belting G#5's at 3:17.
G#5 at 2:43
All I really want to know is how her technique is? To my knowledge, I think she can only support up to B4 because her B4's seem so effortless and resonant. At 4:10 she does a B4 with ease.
B4 at 4:10
This video is optional since she is belting B4's in almost the whole song:
Sorry but just one more video. This one is impressive because she belts a G#5 at 0:51 and then multiple Bb5's at 0:53. Like I said before they seem to be pinched but I could be wrong.
G#5 (0:51) Bb5's (0:53)
So what do you guys think? I believe she has ease with the 4th octave but the 5th octave she starts to strain. How's her technique? What's good and bad?
