Part of getting the most out of your singing voice is understanding your own voice type. When you have a better understanding of your own anatomy, you are more able to know what to expect from your voice, and perhaps more importantly what not to expect. Part of this understanding is knowing your own voice type, what many singing teachers refer to as voice classification. Knowing your voice type is really handy if you want to sing in a community choir, audition for a music theatre production or join a vocal ensemble like Pentatonix or Voctave.
Perhaps you’ve already watched a video or two here on the internet about how to find your voice type. For the most part, other videos only cover one aspect of voice classification: vocal range. But vocal range, that is finding your highest and lowest notes is only a small part of properly identifying your voice type. So, in this video, I want to help you correctly identify your own voice classification using three key indicators: vocal range, prima voce, I’ll explain what that is later, and anatomical factors. If you’re serious about learning your voice type, then you need to combine all three indicators to arrive at the correct classification for your voice. It’s important to understand that any of the three indicators, when considered by themselves, will only give you part of the picture, which might lead you to incorrectly classify your voice type.
CORRECTION: Axl Rose's top note is Bb6, not Bb4 as shown at the beginning of the video.
