voice types

Posted in Uncategorized by Scaramouche on 4 May, 2008

I have decided on what type of voice you need for a certain type of singing. I felt like making a list (featuring my friends that most of you probably don’t know).

For pop music, you need a smooth sort of voice. It can’t have too much vibrato, but it also can’t be too flat. My friends Robbie and Nikki have voices like this.

For musical theatre, you need to be loud. That’s pretty much it. Usually people with interesting voices fit here. My friend Ashley has a voice like this (the girl is LOUD).

For jazz, you need a sort of rough, low voice. This is the genre wherein you don’t have to be perfect and lovely. You can feel free to be raunchy and independent. I have a voice like this.

For rock, you can be grating. This is the only genre in which you don’t have to be a good singer. My friends Jeremy and Erica have voices like this.

For opera, you can be shrieky. Shrieky, lots of vibrato, and rich. My friend Laura has a voice like this (good GOD that girl is a soprano *death*).

For country, you need a twangy sort of feel, but you can be gentle and not harsh. In my opinion, the best country singers are not harsh, but are sort of soft and smooth. My friend Jamie-Lynn has a voice like this.

Aaaaaand if I think of any more I’ll let you know.
