    I sing bass in a barbershop choir (i do enjoy other music aswell but me and my friend both agree, barbershop is the best none tutorial vocal training you can get and when those chords ring, you feel like you want to marry music!) i have a real problem with my range, i can't reach above a middle c! it really bums me out cos all my bottom notes down to bottom Bb (2 8ves below mid c) are good but my high notes suck. It does however mean i have a good falsetto so if u really need a counnter tenor i could try!
    PS, if anyone can help me in finding and developing head voice for use in choral singing, speak (or sing) now!

    Welcome Joseph Haydn!

    Nice you found to us.

    Anyway, now we really have to search for more tenors and altos for our "Forum-Choir".

    Greetings,

    I am a soprano, but I can sing alto. I am starting to sing soprano II sometimes.

    Welcome to the forum, MelodicDreamer!

    @ikklebassonist: The "forum-choir" is the imaginary group of all of us singing together in an imaginary choir.

    All the best!

    Last time I sang in a choir I sang tenor. I believe it takes a real woman to sing low. I've sung alto and sop as well; I pretty much go where I'm needed. (In various choirs I've now sung four out of six parts of Byrd's Sing Joyfully . . . just need to pick up Sop 1 and Bass).

    One of the things I love about singing alto in a women's chorus is the great low parts. SATB arrangements don't usually have those nice, rich low parts for women. I especially love Ron Nelson's alto parts.

    Default What voice?

    I think I’m a baritone… Let me tell you about my voice training. My first voice teacher was a bass/baritone so he trained my voice to become one. When I transferred to another teacher who happens to be a tenor, he wanted my voice to sound like a tenor! So then I thought that I would become a tenor. I had a difficult time adjusting. Both of them wanted to change my voice. It was only later that I realized that my voice is actually a baritone. My voice is rather thick and I couldn’t sing the tenor range.

    Well, I'm not able to sing a low F or G, so I must be a baritone. I sung in a church choir for several years.
