I'm new on here so thank you for taking the time to read this - I hope someone may have an answer for me.
I've been performing for a while now but over the last year or so I've noticed that in rehearsals I struggle to go higher than a G without guaranteed success. However, When the performance comes I have no trouble getting up to a Bb or even a C if necessary without any real difficulty.
As a result I continue to select those songs (because let's face it, life as a tenor is pretty tough without being able to hit ledger-lines) but it is a little disconcerting going into a performance knowing I've not sing the notes I. Rehearsals and just trusting that I'll hit them on the night.
The performances are always fine but I worry I may be doing myself damage in the process - of I can't do it when rehearsing, perhaps I'm straining too much in the performance? Though I know that makes no sense as I only go high when relaxed, so maybe I just relax more when performing?
Any other similar experiences or advice would be much appreciated.
