What Is A Baritone Voice?
Now you might ask yourself, “how do I know if I am a baritone?” By definition, a person with a baritone voice has a lower and fuller range compared to a tenor, but not so low that they only reach bass notes.
In simple terms, a baritone is the second-lowest singing range, and can overlap both Tenor and Bass. Most males are said to have a baritone voice.
You can check if you’re a baritone if your voice ranges between the keys of A2 to A4, and if you can extend the depth of your voice to F2 or increase the pitch to C5.
How To Improve Your Singing
While some guys do have limited vocal range, that doesn’t mean that they can’t improve their singing voice with some tweaks. Here are some tips to improve your singing without training:
Don’t drink too much: Some guys have a tendency to get inebriated before their big performance, which can affect your control over your voice. Avoid having too many drinks before you hit the karaoke machine.
Take a deep breath: Being nervous before a performance is normal, but to be able to hit the notes, you have to have control over your breathing.
Drink water: Having a dry throat can make it difficult for you to reach certain notes, so make sure you’re properly hydrated before you sing.
Practice makes perfect: Not everyone is born with the best singing voice, but practicing can make you sound better. Before your big karaoke break, try practicing on a karaoke app on your phone.
Choose a song that fits your vocal range: One way you can ensure easy singing is by choosing songs within your vocal range. Refer to the choices above if you fit the baritone range.
Now that you know which songs can be sung by guys with baritone voices, this is your moment to rock the stage in a bar, or in your home for a guys night.
The most important part of singing is remembering to have fun, and don’t make a big deal out of not reaching all the notes.
Baritones have amazing voices and are as important as the higher voice ranges too.
