Hi, I just came across your wetisbe, and this string of comments, and they are VERY enlightening. I have some questions for all of you, because I’m trying to figure out the best way to train my voice, what to avoid (damage, etc.). I’ve been doing instrumental music for many years (clarinet and saxophone) but just recently started singing in my church choir. Where I grew up there weren’t that many opportunities to do choral music in my area, so this is something I’ve discovered later in life. ANYWAY I apologize in advance for my lack of understanding of the proper technical language, but basically I’m a bass singer, and my comfortable and best-sounding range is from around Bb or C two octaves below middle C (Bb2 or C2, I guess) up to around middle C. I can sing all the way up to the F above middle C but I sound a little like Alfalfa from The Little Rascals when I sing up there. 🙂 On a good day, I can sing down to A2 or even G1 (barely).My voice is definitely more of the operatic variety. It just feels good to sing a Bb2, C2 or D2, and I have this very woody, coffee bean sound in that range that I like to hear. On the other hand, my voice above middle C is not so appealing. Yeah I can hit the notes but it is not very pretty. My question is, with my voice should I be working to extend my range lower or higher? It seems to me that the choral repertoire for liturgical music tends toward higher bass parts than I’m good at, so that argues for extending my range upward. But, I sound SO much better down low, that I almost feel I should chuck it with the higher range and focus on my strength, i.e. the low end, despite the more limited repertoire. And I’m afraid of damaging my voice by trying to sing too high. Or at the very least, I’m concerned that the higher singing will curb my ability to sing down low, which is my strength.Any advice? I would really appreciate it. Thanks! Bob
