Vocal Range Chart

(Last Updated On: May 1, 2020)

Vocal range chart is the chart showing the range of the human vocal. The vocal range can be classified in between the highest and lowest pitches that human can produce.

     High voice ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Medium voice ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Low voice

Aural Study of Vocal Ranges

These ranges correspond to the following:
Soprano: C4 to A5
Mezzo-soprano: A3 to F#5
Alto: G3 to E5 (and contralto as F3-D5)
Tenor: roughly C3 to A4
Baritone: A2 to F4
Bass: F2 to E4

However, in the layman explanation, according to the vocal ranges chart above. The vocal range is merely the span between the highest to lowest notes.

It’s crucial to identify the vocal range correctly since the vocal range of women and men might be varied. For example, a man he can has a 2 and 1 1/2 octave range in the full voice and an additional of 1 1/2 octave in falsetto. And compared to a woman’s vocal range, a woman can has 2 octave and additional major 3rd on the very bottom of the vocal range chart.

What is Vocal Range?

The role of vocal range in classifying different singing voices to voice types is considered so important. However, there are times when these 2 terms are being confused with each other. The term “voice type” refers to a specific type of singing voice that has identifying characteristics or qualities.

Vocal range is considered only one of those qualities. There are many other factors included such as vocal weight, vocal registration, scientific testing, speech level, physical characteristics, vocal transition, vocal timbre, and vocal tessitura. A combination of all these factors is utilized to determine a singer’s voice, and categorize it into a specific type of voice type.

Today, vocal pedagogists use a variety of voice types in different systems of voice classification. However, many of these types are sub-types falling under 7 different main voice categories. In most cases, they are acknowledged in all major systems of voice classification.


Types of Vocal Range

The voices of women are divided into 3 categories: soprano, contralto, and mezzo-soprano. In the case of men, their voices are typically categorized into 4 groups: tenor, countertenor, bass, and baritone. When it comes to the pre-pubescent children’s voices, treble, and 8th term is usually applied.

In each of these main categories, several sub-categories are present that serve to identify particular voice qualities such as vocal weight and coloratura facility to differentiate various types of voices. The irony is that the vocal range itself has no ability to identify the voice type of a singer.

Female Vocal Range Type

  • Sopranino (A3-)D4-C6(-F6)
  • Soprano (F#3-)B3-A5(-D6)
  • Treble (F3-)Bb3-Ab5(-Db6) (This type of voice only applicable to kids below 11 years old, as their voices haven’t changed yet. Some vocalists classify them as Sopranos, Altos, etc…
  • Mezzo-Soprano (E3-)A3-G5(-C6)
  • Alto (D3-)G3-F5(-Bb5)
  • Contralto (C3-)F3-Eb5(-Ab5)

Male Vocal Range Type

  • Countertenor (Bb2-)Eb3-Db5(-F#5)
  • High Tenor (G#2-)C#3-B4(-E5)
  • Tenor (G2-)C3-Bb4(-Eb5)
  • Low Tenor (F2-)Bb2-Ab4(-Db5)
  • High Baritone (Eb2-)Ab2-F#4(-B4)
  • Baritone (D2-)G2-F4(-Bb4)
  • Bass-Baritone (C2-)F2-Eb4(-Ab4)
  • Bass (B1-)E2-D4(-G4)
  • Low Bass (F1-)Bb1-Ab3(-Db4)
  • Octavist (B0-)E1-D3(-G3)

Each voice type is known to possess a general voice range that is associated with it. Singing voices may cover vocal ranges that have only 1 voice type, or they fall between the common ranges of 2 voice types. In this case, voice teachers use only vocal range as a factor in categorizing a singer’s voice.


Finding The Tessitura Voice Within Your Range

Tessitura refers to where your voice is comfortable when singing. It is considered more important than the vocal range in determining the voice classification. Another more important factor is vocal timbre, described as the descriptive sound of your singing voice. As an example, a woman can have a type of vocal range that can reach the high pitch of a mezzo-soprano.

Accordingly, she can also sing the low notes of a soprano. Therefore, a voice teacher would try to determine if a singer is more comfortable singing higher or lower notes. Let’s say that you are more comfortable to sing higher notes, then, your teacher may classify you as a soprano.

On the other hand, if you were more comfortable singing lower notes, then, you would probably be classified as a mezzo-soprano. However, a voice teacher would not put a singer into a classification of more than 1voice type, regardless of his/her size of vocal range.

How to Find Your Vocal Range?

You can identify your lowest vocal range and highest vocal range you can hit by following the guide in this video below. Listen to the note and sing it along, let’s see what is the highest note you are able to sing…

Vocal Range Classification

It’s to give you some ideas on how the vocal range works. As a singer, you are will be able to perform any song more soulfully and powerful if you have a wider vocal range to handle different octaves and registers efficiently.


Guidelines on Classifying Singers

In general, vocal pedagogues generally make use of five key voice qualities when classifying human voice. These qualities are the vocal range, vocal weight, timbre or tone quality, tessitura, and passaggio. The correct classification of a human voice is necessary because if you misclassify a voice, chances are, you may damage the voice in the long run instead of developing that voice to full fruition. Here are the five key voice qualities for voice classifications:

  1. Vocal Range – is the full spectrum of notes, from the lowest to the highest, that a person’s voice can produce.
  2. Vocal Weight – is perceivable “lightness” or “heaviness” in the voice quality. The light voice is agiler while a heavy voice is richer and more powerful.
  3. Timbre or Tone Quality – according to the definition of Acoustical Society of America is the “attribute of auditory sensation which enables a listener to judge that two nonidentical sounds, similarly presented and having the same loudness and pitch, are dissimilar.”
  4. Tessitura – pertains to the aesthetically acceptable pleasantness of the voice of a singer.
  5. Passaggio – is the term that is often used to describe the area of transition between different vocal registers.

In addition to these key voice qualities used in classifying singers, some vocal teachers consider other factors like speech level or the vocal register. The vocal register is a natural tone of the voice that emanates from vibratory patterns of the vocal cords in the larynx. There are four vocal registry types, namely:

  1. Vocal Fry Register – is the lowest voice register that a person can produce in speech or singing. This voice register is lower than the chest voice.
  2. Modal Voice Register – also known as the normal voice is the vocal register that people normally use in making a speech or singing.
  3. Falsetto Register – is a higher vocal register that lies above the modal voice. The falsetto approximately overlaps the normal vocal register by an octave likewise.
  4. Whistle Register – is by far the highest vocal register that can be produced and the most challenging vocal to perform. Thus, it is very rare even among professional singers. However, there are many people including the male who can readily do this register.

Understanding the Different Voice Types

Voice classifications originated from European classical music and developed over the years. Other similar voice classifications were also developed and introduced like the one in the choral group. Voice classifications, however, generally fall under three groups, namely: female, male, and children’s voice.

A. Understanding The Major Classifications of Female Voices

1. Soprano—The highest singing voice that lies from middle C4 to high C6. It is divided into five sub-categories according to the vocal range, timbre, weight, and voice dexterity and these subcategories are the coloratura soprano, soubrette, dramatic, spinto, and lyric soprano.

2. Mezzo-soprano—The middle-range of the female singing voice that sits between the soprano and contralto singing voice. This voice range lies between A3 to A5 but may go as low as F3 or as high as C6.

3. Contralto—The contralto is the lowest tessitura of the female singing voice with a vocal range that starts from D3 to B♭5. A contralto that can extend her voice up to C6 is called a Soprano Sfogato.

B. Understanding The Major Classifications of Male Voices

1. Countertenor—The countertenor is the highest male singing voice range that stretches from E3 to E5. Countertenors usually sing their high notes in falsetto vocal register and sing the lower notes in modal voice.

2. Tenor—This is the highest male singing voice using modal voice register only. The tenor voice range spans two octaves from C3 to C5 but can extend either down or up at B♭2 and F5 respectively. Like the other categories, the tenor is also subdivided into subcategories according to the voice qualities already mentioned above.

3. Baritone—This is the midrange of the male voice, and it spans A2 to A4 with an extension down to F2 of up to C5.

4. Bass—This is the lowest singing voice range that occupies the keys between E2 to E4.

C. Children’s Voice

1. Treble—This high vocal range singing voice is appropriate for boys and girls before pubescence. It lies from A3 to A5 and is similar to the mezzo-soprano voice range.


Choral Music Classification

Choral music classifies voices based solely on the vocal range. The female voice is divided into soprano and alto; while the male voice is divided into tenor and bass as well as occasional treble for children. This can lead to misclassification in which a singer may be assigned to perform a part of the choral group that is not appropriate for his/her voice range.

Lastly, this misclassification may be harmful to the voice of a person for instead of letting the person’s voice to flourish and develop in his/her real classification, this misclassification may damage the voice of a person in the long run.

    • Awesome. Your vocal range is very wide. Are you a classical singer or contemporary singer?

      Classical singer needed the vocal range & voice type classification.

      But, in case you are a contemporary singer. The wider your vocal range, your voice is more flexible and adaptive to a very wide range of songs you can handle.

        • I’m not a singer and know nothing about this, but I think there might be a difference between being able to produce a sound with a component frequency in the D1 or A_7 ranges, and actually singing in D1 or A_7. Look up what notes human beings can produce and check yourself against those. Even then I think it’s still more likely that there’s a misunderstanding or audio issue than it is that you’re super human.

        Reply
        • Hey. Your vocal range is very similar to mine (G2-C5, with G5 as the falsetto high note) and I can sing tenor and baritone. So, in order to determine if I should sing either tenor or baritone, I take a look at my tessitura, which is where in my voice I feel most comfortable singing. My tessitura is A2-A4, and I personally feel more comfortable singing high notes rather than low notes, so I’d probably call myself a tenor. It isn’t solely dependent on your vocal range, but also where in your voice you feel most comfortable singing, and if you genuinely feel like could sing either one just as easily, then pick the one that you like the most; If you CAN sing your low notes just as good as your high notes, ask yourself if you’d RATHER sing low notes or high notes. Anyway, I hope this helps :).

    • You are singing in the alto range. You may be a contralto or a mezzo soprano.

      If you can go up 5 notes,(From C5 to A5) you will be a mezzo soprano.

    • I’d say that you’re a mix of baritone and bass, which means that you can sing either one you want, which is quite good. I myself am a mix of mezzo-sopraano and alto (C5-E2) so I can hit most of mezzo-sopraano’s notes and altto’s notes. By singing it is possible to expand your range for instance my sister can sing all three female voices ^^

      • I am b2-c6, so I have a wide range (but better suited for a girl), I can be a tenor, high tenor, and a countertenor.

        • I’m A#3/B2-C#6/D6. I class myself as a mezzo-soprano but my tessitura sits at C4-B5. For those saying that is “weird”, it isn’t. Having a wide vocal range is just a talent by luck of the draw. I’m a 30yr old female btw. I used to be able to sing F3-E6 so my range lowered a little when I turned 22 and I lost 1 higher note. That will probably change again when I turn 40ish.

  3. I can’t find a single website with a FULL chart showing the vocal ranges. Saying “C4-A5” for example doesn’t mean jack to me. What goes between those two notes?

  5. What do you think?for all of you wondering what your range is, it’s where YOU most comfortably sing. Are you a girl and your low notes are awesome while your high notes aren’t the greatest? probably alto, other way around? soprano. cant quite hit those super high top notes? mezzo-soprano (aka soprano 2).
    Same goes for guys.

  8. I think voices are interesting. I can sing E3 to F#5. I’ve been classified Mezzo Soprano from my choir director. She helped me because I didn’t know where I fit in the choir. I could hit the high notes but second guessed myself but was very strong in the low notes. So I sang alto in the choir for a month and it was to hard for me. I was placed back in the soprano section and I enjoy that more. If I wanted to I could practice the high notes more but I want to save my families ears! I love singing high alto though…that’s where my voice excels

  12. I actually have a wide vocal range! The lowest note that I can hit comfortably is a F1, but can go as low as an Eb1! Then the highest note that I can hit comfortably is an A5, but can go as high as C6! I just graduated from Columbia high school in Nampa, ID and my choir teacher said it was extremely hard to assign me a voice part. She put me in the bass AND the alto section because of my range. She did get in trouble for doing that, which I honestly thought was stupid, mainly because she had me do a solo for both sections, which got the school a plaque for the concert choir, which was the first ever in the school’s history of 8 years, along with my picture on two plaques. One for being the lowest bass soloist for a mixed school choir and the second one for being the first guy to nail an alto solo in choir festival!

  13. So I did it, the test in the video. It said do all the notes your comfortable with. Well I did it a bunch of times and I get E2 – A5. And btw I like to sing low and high but not too high. Like Frank Sinatra, Artic Monkeys, Dean Martin, What am I?

    I don’t really sing up until now I actually feel more confident. But I also noticed I like to mimic voices alot, any voice, high to deep since I was a kid. I noticed I can do Megatrons voice too lol. Idk I would like to expand my mind in this field, so any help is appreciated.

    Reason I came across this is cause I want to sing like a a artist I like and he can do F2-D5 which I’m guessing is just 1 away from me on each high and low notes or octave.

    • See, for a vocal range to work, you have to be able to sing from the higher note down. So, unless you are able to sing that A7 and go down the scale, it would not count so it would go for you:
      Low: A0
      Chest: E2-D4
      Whistle: A7
      You technical range is 2.2 octaves because the A0 and A7 are considered semitones. Hope I was able to help!

  37. For the female vocal range I can go from C4 – E6.

    And for the male vocal range I can go from C4 – D2.

    What would I consider my vocal range because I am quite confused with the scales.

  39. The lowest I can get is f3 and my highest is F5. I’ve been told I should sing Opera before, because of my voice. I classify myself as a mezzo-soprano, but apparently my range extends past that on both ends. Huh…

  41. So my 16 year-old daughter is being classically trained. When she sang musical theater, she mostly used her chest and mixed voice. Now that she is singing classical songs, she is using her head and mixed voice. I was told in opera, only the head and mixed voice is used and not the chest. If she uses her chest voice, mixed and head voice her range is from e3 to f6. So am don’t know how to classify her voice. Can someone help me?

  42. Uhm… G3-A6 , not sure where that puts me. Higher than the average soprano, as low as an alto? I’d say mezzo, but that’s a bit high of a note for a mezzo.

  43. Supposedly my range is an E2-C5 however, my lower register (even though i have a naturally really deep voice) sounds lacking and cant get good resonance or tone despite being able to reach those notes. Ive over time developed my higher end to extend to c5, and on a good day one or two notes higher when singing jamiroquai. Id love to have a nice lower range though. I can reach it, it just sounds trash XD

  44. Hello there. Well, I am an untrained singer and I do not know where I fit in. My range starts on a breathy pushed A2. I do not know if I can count that note. I can hit a solid B2 without difficulty. However, I am most comfortable starting with the lowest notes of C3-F3. I just noticed that after I sang C4, a light airy sound is heard around D4/E4. Then around F4/G4, I shift into falsetto. The highest I can go to is an airy A4/B4. C5 and above is where everything is falsetto. The top note I can sing in falsetto without being pushed is a D5/E5. So basically, for an untrained singer, my range is from A2/B2-A4/B4. Why can’t I go any higher? Is it a lack of training? Could it be incorrect singing techniques? Can someone help me point out my weakpoints? Thank you.

  45. I’m 15 years old and I have a range of a2-d4 in chest voice, e4-a4 full head voice(b4 if I warm up and even a belted c5), and a falsetto that ranges from b4-a#5(sometimes a b5 but it’s a little strained). I’ve been able to hit a g2 but it’s growled/fryed. I recently this year expanded my range, that’s where I got the top notes G4-b4’ish notes. My falsetto can drop down to an f4. What exactly am I? A baritone, tenor, soprano(joking). But seriously. I wanna get my full voice range into at least 2 1/2 octaves(which for me is a d#5). If probably like to extend my belts to an e5 or f5 so that, when I record music, I can sing the chorus of a song within the range of f4-b4(c5) and hav extra to play with so I could use those top notes as backing vocals with out using falsetto in those backing vocals too much.Any tips on me extending my voice?

  46. Hi! I’m a 15 year old male and I have a range of a2-a4(brief/constant b4 if warmed up and and a brief c5 at times). I have a falsetto range all the way to a#5(b5 is sometimes a whistle along with a c6). I’ve hit an e6 whistle note but it doesn’t really count. I’m at times able to growl notes like g2-g#2 but it’s pretty fried. So I’m guessing my range is:
    Low: (g2)a2-f3
    Middle: g3-d4
    High: e4-a4(b5)
    Falsetto: (f4)a4-a#5(b5)

    The thing is that I want to integrate a couple notes from the upper register into my full voice range. Id like to hav a 2 1/2 full voice range, which has the top note d#5ish. I’d like to extend it up to an e5 or f5 full voice. I’d really like to have those extra top notes so I could mess with them in songs. A couple examples of people who do this are Patrick Stump, Brendon Urie, Michael Barnes, Bruno Mars, Adam Levine, ext. These are examples of people who use there upper range in their songs as harmony or just as the main thing. Any tips on the expansion of my voice please? Am I a Tenor or baritone singer?

    • It is best to base your vocal range off of your full/chest voice. I wouldn’t bass it on Fry and falsetto. However considering you range I would say you are probably a bass.

  61. I am female and my full vocal range I tested on sing sharp was A2 – G5. I did not scream or strain my voice to hit these notes (at least I tried not to), just in case it had any effect on something.

Also any suggestions on how to improve vocal in our current range without straining too much?

    • Hello. I’ve been confused as to what I am for a while. For some reason my chest voice doesn’t extend as far as the majority of mezzo sopranos so I always thought I was an alto. However:

      My range is E3-C5-A5. (A5 have to be warmed up well). I find most mezzo can comfortably hit a D5-F5 in chest voice but I can’t. My low motes are deep but as I get higher they sound very light and girly. I’ve tried to get to a C6 but it’s just a screech! Light lyric mezzo maybe?

      Reply
  62. My range according to this is E3-B5(C6 somewhat) comfortably and currently 14 as a Soprano in my choir. We are going to be practicing for a musical called Into the Woods and I am aiming more for the Witch who has a range of C4-C5 for singing parts. Would that be alright with my actual range itself?

      • Marc, your voice can only be classified as an adult. It also doesn’t include growling or screaming or falsetto. Right now you have a range equal to bobby mcferron . You should buy one of his CD, with yoyo ma the cello player is a good one, or download some of his recordings. Make sure you read the liner notes to make sure he’s the only male voice on the recording.

  69. My first attempt showed A2-F6 on 8th April with the SingSharp app. After trying a couple of times I expanded my lower and upper register with just a note (G2-G6) [not sure if the notes are right but that must be between 99,5Hz-1633Hz]. and I’m about to become 22 after four months and 2 days xD. I’m definitely not a singer, but got obsessed with searching singers’ vocal range. In my perspective, as a non-singer, I consider myself lacking power and resonance, I suppose, but I have no idea.

    Reply
    • Depends on how strict you want to be. Your singing voice doesn’t include, falsetto, screams, growls, ..That’s what a classically trained singer includes. But if your simply going by what sounds you can make then everything goes. The only thing that really matters is your singing voice , falsetto, and a good scream if you like rock or gospel, which is where you hear that, and sometimes blues.

  75. Hey there folks.

    Depending on the song that I was singing, I have been classified and guessed by different people with musical backgrounds as a bass, bass-baritone, basso profundo, baritone, and a bass.

    I don’t sing often and just an amateur,, so I just tried sing sharp for fun and it gave me a range of D#2 to C#4, then from D#2 to C#5. Note: (My speaking voice started at between D#2 and F2). At one point 8 years ago, I apparently had a 4 octave range from going lower than the D#2 as far as I can remember and had a high note of E#5 and could almost hit the highest not of the F#5 in the song).

    Singers that I like to sing with include Bing Crosby, Josh Turner, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Paul Robeson, Dean Martin, and Harry Connick jr.,

    In general, I am much more comfortable signing with the lower voiced people from that list and have found that quite often I have to raise my voice higher to reach their lower notes.

    So does anyone have thoughts on what classification they would put me in.

    Reply
    • Further to my previous post, I tried that app some more and did some research.

      Former Singing Voice Vocal Range = A1 to A4

      Current Singing Voice Vocal Range = A1 to C4
      Current Speaking Voice Range = C2 to C4

      So I’m a bass as was originally classified.

      Reply
      • Hey there folks.

        Ignore what I wrote in May 2017.

        After that I did a lot more research, tried the app a lot mot, was in a musical play that year, and really took some time to reassess things
        Looks like I had made some typos. So let’s fix those, shall we. 🙂

        To start with, I am a natural bass that has at least had these ranges:

        2008 Singing Vocal Range = (F1) A1 to E5 (G5)

        2018 Singing Vocal Range =
        (F1) A1 to A3 (C4)

        Could hit D4 but it’s really pushing it and if I try to maintain C4 or D4 or to hit anything above those, it hurts terribly and I get told to stop.

        Speaking Voice Range =
        A1 to A3

        But I’m wondering if anyone has used Sing Sharp to practice/assess their vocal ranges. If so, anyone else noticed that Sing Sharp has a range limit of A1 to A7, as it won’t recognize anything above, or below those ranges?

        Just curious.

        Also I highly recommend Perfect Piano.

        And does anyone have recommendations on what to do to when sick and needing to sing? So far I just attempt throat coat tea, breathe easy tea, ricola lozenges, ludens lozenges, and slippery elm tea.

        Again just curious.

        Have a great day.

        🙂

  76. Hello,
    I tried SingSharp and it seems that I hit G#2 to E4, using my ‘normal singing voice’. I guess I’m in the Baritone range. However, when I sing with the ‘opera like’ voice, I can easily hit up to D5 (countertenor range). I don’t know the technical terms.
    I tried singing along with Alfred Deller and had no problem hitting the notes too.
    Which range should I practice? Do you recommend anyway to practice my voice?
    I’m male 24 yo.
    Thanks

    • Test your range on a keyboard, not on other people voices and you should get it right for sure. Sometimes people can sing really high using your whistle voice, but can’t sing in between. That wouldn’t be considered your range then. Also, I’ve heard that SingSharp isn’t the most exactly accurate device

  100. Hello! I’m from Sarawak, Borneo (Malaysia). My vocal range tested via app ‘Sing Sharp’ is from the lowest E3 to F4. I’am 25 years male. So which category my vocal is?

    • You have a really high range for a male, i think you definitely isnt a baritone or a bass, maybe a really high tenor or a countenor, you can tell me your highest note in head voice? , no falsette or whistle, head voice

  101. If my lowest note is A0 in chest voice, and C6 is my highest note in mix v, my most acute note in head v is C#6 and the lowest note is G2, ¿what type of voice do I have? I reach highest notes in whistle, I never go to music class & I never practice.

  103. Low is B1, High is D4, I would say D5, but it kind of hurts at that one. 43 Y.o. Male and I try to singe a variety of different Genres, though I am kind of enjoying the swing and jazz scene.

  106. I just need some guidance and advice on how to expand my range, unfortunately i’m a perfectionist when it comes to music so i would love to have a wider range. My current range is D2 – F#4 in Chest voice and C4 – G5 in Falsetto. is it possible to develop it more…

  107. When I am singing clean (as far clean goes), my voice is ranging from low A#2 til high A#5.

    Usually I do growling and screaming.
    I switch between ex- and inhale for higher pitched screams.
    My lower growls are close to F1.

    When I speak normal it’s from (B2) C3 til E3 (F3).

    So, all in all – are those good/wide ranges in comparison to my “normal” voice?

  108. 16. I think I’m a tenor but my speaking voice can get lower when I’m relaxed. My most comfortable low note is G2 but I can go to F2 or E2 if i lower my larynx. My highest mixed note is Bb4/B4. My highest falsetto is G5/A5 but that’s a bit forced up there. I can whistle (sometimes can do it) but I literally have no control and I can’t do it whenever I want to do it but if you want to know I’ve whistled up to C7 but I guess I’m really only comfortable to F6. Would you say I’m a tenor or what do you think I am?

  111. Hi. Just wanna know… My lowest chest register is A2 and I can reach the notes higher until C5 (higher until B5/Bb5) whereby I’d have to use mixed voice. Then starting the following notes until D6, I still can reach it with my head voice. What does that make me? I’m a 22 male, choir member.

  112. I have a question regarding vocal range, Pentatonix singer Mitch Grassi supposedly has a vocal range of 6 octaves and 1 tone, from A1 to B7, this seems like a very excessive range to me as Freddy Mercury who was praised for his big vocal range was “only” able to hit F2 to D6, this might be one of those “don’t use the same criteria for popstars and ther singers” kinda things but something seems off as from the chart you have on this page :

    Soprano: C4 to A5
    Mezzo-soprano: A3 to F#5
    Alto: G3 to E5 (and contralto as F3-D5)
    Tenor: roughly C3 to A4
    Baritone: A2 to F4
    Bass: F2 to E4

    He would largely depass the ranges on both ends, or am I just being dumb and don’t know what I am talking about (this is probable as I am not (yet) a singer myself).

    • Well I tested it for myself and according to the sing sharp app my range goes from B1 to E5 (I did however do this with a headset and didn’t ask my neighbours opinion so I presume the sound quality was not really too good :-p ) what would that make me (34 yr old male), in addition to that I feel really comfortable on E3 and with head voice E4 .

      I am not a singer but I am thinking of starting as I do like singing but I would like to know in what register I need to start.

      • Turns out I feel comfortable at A#3 aswell, but like I said in the previous post, I know nothing about singing so I am just going by what feels good and sounds about the right note, am usually less than an an octave off :-p

        • Looks like you and i have the same vocal range B1-E5 except i have a G2 speech. Where your more at ease in A#3. Late 40’s male. They would classify us as baritone.

  114. I can sing:
    Low: F3
    High:E6 (barely)

    Technically I can sing as high as a soprano, but since I’m more comfortable singing a bit lower, does that make me mezzo soprano. Also, I can sing as low as an alto, so I’m not sure. Someone help me with the rules of music.

  118. When I was in my late teens and early 20’s I trained in opera for a few years and then spent time studying voice at Berklee. My documented range at one point was A3-F6 without going falsetto. It took a lot of practice to build that upper range out with full power. 30 years later my range is more like A3-G#5…still fun to do karaoke of break out an acoustic and sing at parties…

  121. Okay so im female, im 27. i have a range from B2 – F6. Been told by quite a few peopke when i sing in the lower register i sound manly :/ duno if thats a good thing or not… but when i go high im very girlish… what do you think. personally im more comfortable in the lower register. its much more easier for me.

    Reply
  122. I’m a Baritone and can hit from F1 to A5. When all the planets are aligned I can hit a C6 but that’s not all the time so my high note is A5. As a Baritone singing low notes is a no brainer. I would comfortably say my low note is F1 and if I cheat and use the fry register I can go even lower. I ironically have the same voice type and range as the singer from Avenged Sevenfold, M. Shadows.

    Reply
  123. I’ve gone down to around an E2 (not always there. more around a G2 fairly consistantly) and up to Bb4/B4 (around a G4/A4 consistantly) and maybe a C5 once. Thats after a little over 2 years of singing lessons. Before i could sing an E4 a few times if I was lucky and an F4 once per a song or multiple songs if i was lucky and then my throat would be sore. Now an F4 or G4 is fairly easy as long as long as i’m warmed up and breath support etc is going fairly good. Sometimes I do have to work for it but not always so much (once at least I sang an F5 so easily I was surprised myself cos it felt as easy as singing a C4).

    What singing type do you think I am? My singing teacher though originally a Baritone but now she thinks I could be a Tenor but she isn’t sure at the moment (I know i’m somewhere around Baritone/Tenor). I also prefer to sing the higher notes if i can. In choirs I will go for the Tenor over Base even if I can sing the range for both parts. I also prefer lyrical tenors above spinto or dramatic Tenors.

    I do understand that vocal range however isn’t the only thing that defines what singing type you are (as per the article) and there are also way more singing voice types than the main 4 or 6.

  124. People often forget that the Countertenor incorporates 3 out of the 4 female voice types, contralto not included. So, to say that their range is from E3-E5 is incorrect. The accepted range is from an F3-C6(F6 or higher)The same goes for Contralto respectively. The acceptable range is from (or Lower)E3- D5(F5)

  125. Okay so, I’m a girl and my lowest sustainable and clear note is G#3 and Highest sustainably clear note is C#5.

    If i sing most comfortably and commonly around C4 and G4 what kind of singer would that make me? I always feel like my voice is plain sounding although. I also usually use natural vibrato with my vocal tones.

  127. My vocal range (according to the app) is G2 to G5 and I’m a a 43 year old female untrained singer (turning 44 very soon), I sing with my local community choir but can’t read music or understand much of the terminology used. I keep getting asked “what are you?”, I only wish I knew! I tend to sing with the soprano section but find it fairly easy to just “fill in” wherever needed so I guess I go ‘all over the shop’. Any ideas as to what I should classify myself as for future reference when asked? Thanks 🙂

  128. I’m probably a Tenor…
    Even thought most Apps don’t work very good for Pitch detection (They jump from 3rd to 4th to 5th octave and back) 🙁
    But I haven’t tried the Range Detector yet (will tomorrow) but it’s just that I’m either too loud or something… But with what I’ve seen and tested multiple times and heard myself…
    My voice spans roughly from B2 to E5 without Falsetto, so yes, I’m 100% a Tenor..

  129. I am a woman, and my range is C3 to C5. That makes me a Tenor according to the information at the top of the page. And although yes, I am 55 years old, I have always had a very low (but strong) voice. Why is it that women like myself are not accounted for?

    When I was young I was in the school band and choir, but I always had this problem… At home I could sing a song well and strong, but then I’d go to try to audition for something and what came out was squeaking. I only realised later in life that I had been (unknowingly) transposing those songs and singing it a key that suited me at home. When singing at school, I would be singing in the higher key of the original music. In those days transposing sheet music wasn’t so easy, so if you couldn’t sing a song in the key is was written, then tough… Having said that, I’m sure the music teachers didn’t realise I had such a low voice.

    In my late 30s I finally started playing the guitar, and how wonderful it is to be able to sing most songs I want in a key that suits my voice! I transpose all songs down into my range: I only wish I had known this when I was younger. Besides singing solo with the guitar, I also sing in an acapella choir and I sing Tenor and Bass.

    I find it extremely frustrating that women seem to be expected/forced to have a higher voice. I looked online to check out Singing Exams and a woman with a Low Voice apparently is something like G3 to D5!!!! It’s so frustrating and unfair!!

    • Hey, hopefully this helps clear things up a bit for you. Keep in mind 2 things: 1. The contralto voice range is C3 (F3 – F5) B5. This would put you in there somewhere, and as is the case with most ranges, you have to work to develop the higher parts. Most basses for example experience their break at C4 without work. (I use that example because I’m a bass lol) But the top of bass range can go up to G4? That just comes with time and effort. Your voice probably dropped down a few notes with age, and was most likely closer to F3 before, but it’s always possible that this is not the case. 2. Theres nothing wrong with singing tenor. I see plenty of females singing even baritone parts, if that’s where you feel comfortable.

      Reply
    • Depends where you feel most confortable and whether or not you’re using full voice or head voice near the top. The fact that you can go to C3 means to me that you are most likely an alto or a mezzo with a few alto notes. Keep in mind also that when you test you’re not supposed to force anything. Using myself as an example, I can can sing as low as an F#1, which is way outside of my class’ range, but that would be forced, if I didn’t try to force at all the lowest would be D2 which makes a lot more sense. Near the top it is harder to tell, as head voice comes into play. Again using myself, I can sing up to a F4 chest, but continuing into falsetto allows me to go even as high a C6, which obviously again doesn’t make any sense. If you don’t know when that switch happens try singing the ‘ng’ sound from the bottom of your range up and see where it breaks.

  130. Hey, I’m a totally untrained 22yr old guy and my lowest, absolutely not forced note is around E3, but my highest are around E5-G5, I switch to head voice or that squeeky sound that you make when you have absolutely no chest left (and do something wrong), when I’m around C5…
    I can sing lower (my lowest being around B2), but it begins to feel more unnaturally forced than around E3-E4.
    My voice, if not forced, sounds even a bit lighter than usual and I tend to use a chest-head mix until near 5th octave (afaik)
    But my lower notes come easier than my higher ones (probably because of lack of training) and I seem to have a bit of a dark timbre hidden somwhere in my voice.
    What type of voice is that?

    Thx, Robin

  131. First, I’m so surprised comments go so far back! Very cool! I don’t read music, never trained and I don’t know notes. I know i can go as low as Guns N Roses, Elton John, Chris Cornell, 311, Tina Turner, Toni Braxton and as high as Celine, Christina A. and as strong as Demi and K. Clarkson. I have no clue how to learn my range. I know what I can and can’t sing though and Beyonce ain’t it! Lol What are your thoughts?

    • There are apps that you can download that will give you a general idea. If you have a musical instrument, you can use that to test the quality of the app by playing known notes and seeing if it can accurately pin them.

  132. Someone commented one day when I was sort of singing under my breath I was singing pretty low but I never really noticed always thought I was a higher baritone/ tenor. I used to sing choir in high school I seen the sing sharp app and tried it out. not sure what it means but I bottomed out at D2 but was more comfortable holding at E2 and before I switched to a very strained falsetto I hit G4. my teacher then said I would have benefitted from voice lessons. starting to think maybe he was right.

  133. Pitch detectors regularly place me as having a range over 4 octaves. I’ve been reliably measured as ranging C2 to D6, but I’ve gone as low as A#1 and as high as F6.

    I can’t sing to save my life, though. Is there any hope that I could reliably use most of this range?

  134. I’ve just recently started taking lessons for singing but i feel like i may need a different style of teaching. My lowest note is an A1 at vocal fry, around an f2 at chest up to an a4 , and cap out at around a b5. What exactly is my classification?

    Reply
  135. Bb1 to F#5. Counter tenor, Dramatic tenor, Lyric tenor, Baritone with a high range, I have been described as all of these, what is your opinion. I have been singing for 45 years and never really analysed my range, I just did my exercises and attempted any song and as a result I have been able to Opera to Heavy Metal due to my tutor Roger Kane, alas no longer with us. I Sing Cher, Britney Spears, Tina Turner, Celina Dion etc. I am in no way arrogant enough to say they are spot on, but they are in tune and enough of a likeness to give the audience a laugh. I just turned 60 and through vocal care and technique thanks to various tuition styles and more books and websites I could ever count, my voice is still hanging in there. You’re never too old to sing. I really want to know is whether my range is a tenor or either side of the scale. Sorry about the long winded comment.

  136. I just found this via a pinterest suggestion. I used to sing in highschool choir, but haven’t really sung much since then, only picking it up as a bit of loose a hobby again the last few years.
    And I’m afraid the small part of choir misclassification hit home. I remember having a wide range back then and since the choir was short on people for the higher voice, I was asked to sing that, although I naturally always preferred the lower voices.
    Today (39) I comfortably hit C3/B2 to G5, which makes so much more sense then the highpitched “tirly tirly tirly” sound of the nightingales I had to sing back then.
