You should do warm ups. They increase your range, improve your tonal quality, improve vocal technique, cause you to put less strain on your vocal cords when you sing, help you stay on key easier, and many more things. I try to do them every day. I only do them a few times a week though

Oh and btw I've increased my range to 4 octaves and 2 halfsteps on a good day I'm so proud of myself.

I have too much of a wide range to be able to say what it is exactly that I sing. But I do like to sing more in-between the also and saprano range.

I honestly don't know what I am...fallinguprawks said 2nd alto or 1st tenor (I'm a girl!) but I can sing most soprano (with some falsetto). According to the handy dandy chart, I have the low range of an alto and the high range of a mezzo soprano. Maybe I'm both, but I sound better as an alto.

what determines range?

I'm not sure if head voice is counted in your range or not. When you are singing scales for a choir director in order for him/her to place you in the correct section, does he or she cap you off at your chest voice or your head voice? I've heard instances of featured soloists singing into a microphone where the "breathy" sound was picked up by the mic (head voice, right?), so it has made me believe that anything is admissable to get the job done. Is this right?

I've known female tenors But yes, if you can use falsetto to hit the higher notes (most girls can't), then that qualifies you.

Yeah, if your falsetto is useable and sounds good enough, totally use it. Although, unless you can do a freaking good chest-voice-imitating-falsetto, the choir director will count only your chest voice range. If you do, in fact, have a usealbe falsetto, you can always make it sound more like your chest voice by putting treble on it either through your nose or your chest (I personally use more nose-treble on my falsetto). The more you use your falsetto, the more like your chest voice it will sound.

I'm very much a contralto. *grin* I can go down to a C# almost-an-octave below middle C, up to a G#/A in a chest voice, D in head voice (sometimes up to F... on a good day). And it's improving.

I sing 1st soprano, and hit some pretty high notes..

But every now and then, when either I'm sick, or i REALLY try to, I can sing some pretty low bass notes!!!


exciting.. huh?!

Today in voice lessons, my teacher checked my range, and I can comfortably hit c below low e! That's two whole steps below the lowest guitar string, open Therefore giving me a 2 octave chest voice (on a good day ). But yeah. That means I can go 4 half-steps below how low a heavy bass should be able to go I'm so proud of myself

Most girls don't have useable falsettos. Thing is, most girls can go high enough in chest voice that they don't need to. For a guy to have a useable falsetto is more common.

Yessss... you weren't talking to me, but now I don't feel so bad about how heinously airy my falsetto sounds.

Oh yeah I know what you mean about the "airy" thing. I started using falsetto when I was about 13, and it sure as heck wasn't developed back then However, from use, warm ups, and adding treble through my nose, it sounds pretty good now I can sing tenor and fool anybody not listening too closely into thinking I can go that high in chest

My voice teacher said I might be a second Tenor now that my range has changed. Now it's from low E (like the low guitar string) to the B above middle C. My falsetto starts at the D right above middle C and goes up to about the B an octave above my highest chest note.
