06-What is My Vocal Range?

***Caution – hot button topic ahead.***

Why don’t most singers (or teachers for that matter) know the difference between a voice classification and your vocal range?  What should your vocal range be?  It will all be made clear….or at least clearer.  So leave behind what you’ve believed and be prepared to approach the idea of vocal range in a new way.


Joshua asked:

I would really love to understand what my vocal range is.  I know I can sing very low and kind of high.  I can reach high notes easily in falsetto.  Can you help me?


And I answered by sharing details about:

  • What the majority of people/teachers think is the definition of your vocal range
  • What bass, baritone, tenor, alto, and soprano mean
  • The actual definition of your vocal range
  • How any singer or speaker can greatly increase their vocal range and have the same strength on every note in it
