Singing
 
I don't know if this is the place for a singing thread, but if not, could someone please redirect me. I was looking around and found this to be the most appropriate place - :S. Anyways.

I was wondering if anyone else sings on these forums (I assume people do). What are your vocal ranges? What is a good vocal range? What are some tips to improve your vocal range? Talk about your singing experiences.

I can't sing so i use my fingers instead....

Uhh.

I'm an alto for the most part.

I can sing a lot of music, but I'm not fond of falsetto, so I try the lower stuff.

Uhm, my musical experiences?

How do you mean?

I'm a musician, my entire LIFE is a musical experience.

Your entire life is a musical experience, interestly said :P. I guess what I mean is what projects in music have you done? Musicals? Band? etc. Any training. Whatever, lol, nothing important to list - just trying to fuel a conversation ;P.

So just a question for you, I have a vocal range from G3 to an F5 (I think that's right, the G below middle C to the F above middle C). So not quite a complete octave - although I could hit F3, but I don't know, its not powerful, so I don't count it.
What is that vocal range called? I think it's called a countertenor, but I searched that up and it's all in falsetto, the countertenor voice, and thats a concious choice of singing, not like using the modal voice. So what is the name of that vocal range? Also, with falsetto I could go up 2 E's past middle C.

I know, alot of questions and little knowledge :P I hope you'll help me get all these terms straight.

Thanks.

Ah.

I've been part of a musical but I had to quit.

I sing in a band right now, I absolutely love it.

I'm not a professional singer, although people have told me I should be because I love it so much.

If you'd like, I could ask my Theory teacher.

My friend is actually the one who told me my vocal range.

Lemme see what I can do. ^_^;

lol awesome! thanks. I don't know much about the technical terms, I'm in my first year of vocal training so I'm learning. But any help is always appreciated.

How old are you by the way?

Arya Stark 01-05-2009 01:29 PM

I'm not in the process of ANY training. =[

I'm 17, why?

MakingMusicLife 01-05-2009 10:16 PM

lol just wondering. I recently turned 18 lol.
You know what, I never considered training really before, but this year I kinda said I wanted to really focus on music and whatnot, and so I have been trying many new things, auditioning and vocal training and that stuff. It's worth it if you at least want a shot at making it in the industry :S lol

Arya Stark 01-06-2009 02:55 PM

Eh, I agree.

I need to start training.

But I'd like to graduate first, so that I can focus on college. And what I want to do, you know?

I'm a soprano, but my voice is way out of shape. My range is like two octaves, from a G below the treble staff to a G atop the staff. Not sure of the technical terms? When I was in choir my voice sounded a lot better. It's not terrible now but I'm not satisfied with it. I've been thinking about getting some training.
