Transcript of VOICE TYPES

Voice Classification
Before singing, artists, musicians and even the members of a choir MUST clasificate their voices... Why?

To see which genres they can sing
To improve the sound quality
To be more comfortable while singing

The criteria to classify voices are:

Vocal Range: How acute or how grimly the voice is
Vocal Weight: How light or how heavy the voice is
Vocal Tessitura: How comfortable is a voice with a determined tone
Vocal Timbre: A individual feature that differentiates different voices

Voice Types
Once we´ve seen the weight, tessitura, range and colour of our voice, we have to choose a type of voive.
Voice types are divided in two big groups:

Female voices
Male voices
Voice Training
After all these process of classifying our voice, we have to train it.
Voice pedagogist recomend:
Find a comfortable or middle area for the voice
Train it in that area with posture, breathing, phonation, resonation and articulation excersices
Explore the higher and lower tones
The true quality will EMERGE

Female voices (Range)
Female voices commonly are divided in four groups:

Soprano: Is the "highest" female voice, it goes from middle C to C6. (Opera)

Mezzo-soprano: Most common voice in women goes from A3 to A5.

Alto: Designated vocal line in choral music goes from G3 to F5

Contra-alto: (extremly rare) goes from E3 to E5
