Re: Question for vocal teachers, why does voice skip note?

: My 12 y/o daughter is a prodigy 6 octave vovalist that has never had lessons

She is developing a natural break. If it is around D above high C, she is a soprano. This is from the cartilage hardening with maturity. This mostly occurs during puberty, but continues on into the 40s. This is why really great opera singers are in their 40s -power! This break becomes more pornounced with age unless you train. I liken it to getting a bigger motorcycle every few years: more to control, but more power. If you really want a great career for her, you will have to invest, just like with a violinist. My feeling is, if you can't afford a REALLY good teacher for a child, which will cost upwards of $60 an hour for the rest of her life, then don't do it at all. Female vocalists are easy to wreck with the wrong teacher, but when you have the right teacher WOW! If you can't afford it, just singing a lot is the way to do it, get her into choirs and fun things, and keep it fun, a relaxed voice is the best voice -- sing from the pelvis! A really good teacher will help keep the range, but the wrong training will take several years with a good teacher to undo. Been there!
