My voice can't hit high notes anymore! WHY!?

Ok so a few days ago i went to karaoke and realized i couldn't hit high notes anymore. When i was a little boy, it was easier but now my voice is all deep. I don't know why i lost the ability to hit high notes though. Is there any way to regain it? Would taking vocal lessons help?

puberty is a bitch. Soon you will also begin to find hair where there was no hair before.

You hit puberty, congrats.

But really, once the voice is finished developing, you should be able to hit them again.

I was just kidding ^.^

I'd read this if you're confused about the singing aspect: My voice broke! I can?t sing anymore. Will it ever come back? | Celestial Voices (it sounds a 'tad patronizing but sums everything up carefully)

As for the monotone part, I read listening to interesting voices and imitating can help. But if you really want to change it, seeing a speech therapist is the way to go.

Maybe you should wait until you're finished puberty.

You just need the right type of motivation.

I'll throw a bag full of spiders on your lap... you'll hit them high notes for sure

I find it funny that you're asking about hitting high notes in a forum that is frequented by sports/mma fans. I don't think there are a lot of people here with experience on belting out that Celien Dion style (sp) high note.

It's mostly for doing those girly voices at karaoke. My friend hits them like it's nothing and they're so accurate and his voice is actually amazing for somebody who sings casually for fun. I also want to start trying to sing while i'm playing guitar. Though i've only been playing guitar for less than a month but i'd like to have a good voice that can hit all notes. From high to low and accurately.
