MUSIC LESSONS - VOCAL
Most people think they can’t sing because they aren’t “naturally gifted”.
It is true, some have more gifts than others, but singing is like walking. Almost everyone can walk if they try.
The voice is a muscle, and like any muscle in the body can grow and get stronger even into your 70’s when trained correctly. Most singers have no idea what their “true” vocal range is, and many resign themselves to “lower” vocal registers because they do not know how to access their upper register, another contributing factor is that due to “panicking” they quickly “squeeze off the air in the throat” which seriously impedes and inhibits range.
There is a false idea that people are supposed to “sing without stress”. That would be like telling the athlete he is supposed to perform without stress. There will always be stress. It’s the management of stress and the overcoming of stress we condition for to keep us at our maximum.
According to the operatic system of classification, there are six basic approximate voice types:
Soprano: the highest female voice.
Mezzo-soprano: a female voice between A below middle C and 2nd A above middle C.
Contralto: the lowest female voice.
Tenor: the highest male voice.
Baritone: a male voice two Gs below middle C to F above middle C.
Bass: the lowest male voice.
