  • My vocal range

    I (male) just tested out my vocal range. Please comment on that. Is it average? Or special in some way? I'm not a trained singer.

    I'm dissapointed on my chest voice because it doesn't have a higher range.

     

    chest voice:

    lowest:
    g2

    highest:
    c4 (comfortable)
    g#4 (uncomfortable, pushing)


    head voice:

    lowest:
    e3 (comfortable)
    c3 (uncomfortable, weak)

    highest:
    c5 (comfortable)
    g5 (uncomfortable, pushing)

    What's to be disappointed about?  The break at G#4 is the standard tenor bridge to head voice, and if you smooth out the bridge you've got close to another octave on top of that, which gives you a total of three octaves.


    Orthodoxy says that one begins mixing head into chest at about D4 (the first bridge) and then settle into full head voice at A5.


    My favorite singer is Bob Dylan so I'm not very orthodox, but there you have it.

        What did you use to measure your vocal range? Did you just hit a note on the piano and see if you could hit it?
