Baritone singing lessons

Where Male singing is concerned, “it’s a Tenor’s world”, right? Wrong. Whether you’re a baritone, tenor, bass, high baritone – it really doesn’t matter your voice type and traditional classification as to whether you can sing well.

Do I need baritone singing lessons?

While I totally agree that baritones and bass singers have unique differences in their voice to male Tenor and female singers, the science and truth behind healthy singing technique is exactly the same for a Baritone than it is for any other range.

Baritone singing lessons aren’t even “a thing”, honestly. I teach the same concept of proper breath control, compression, modified vowels, proper placement and frequency control along with my own unique approach to rock singing where healthy grit and consonant sound production is concerned. Sure, each voice has it’s own unique challenges, and it is a different kettle of fish to teach a baritone than it is to teach a Tenor, but if you have a really great vocal coach who truly understands how the voice really works, they can tailor healthy techniques such as modified vowels and compression to your own unique range and sound, mixed with your own approach to meet the style you’re aiming for.

While I’m personally a bass, my singing is certainly not limited by this lower-than-average voice type, and it certainly doesn’t dictate who I can teach and which of my students benefit the most from my coaching. Healthy singing technique is the same singing technique regardless of your range and voice type – the trick is finding the right teacher who truly clicks with what you’re about and what you want to learn. Mary had a little lamb is great and all, but will repeated renditions really help you sing like James Hetfield? No. And will chromatic scales for days on end help you sing like Myles Kennedy and hit the piercing highs of Sebastian Bach? Absolutely not. Learning how to control your voice in the right way and developing healthy singing technique will absolutely get you there with some practice and the right approach!

  1. I am a female tenor I believe… I took a test on someone’s website who is a vocal couach and came out as a light chest- no chest type and a baritone with tenor notes… I really am not sure since I am a beginner singer. I have a deep speaking voice for a female so I definately know I have a lower range. Right now I cannot sing high. I would just like to be able to sing in my range at least and have a bit of a grit sound like Scott Weiland. I find it very comfortable to sing Amy Ray’s Touch me Fall beginning verses with no problem in full chest voice because her voice is so deep. When she goes higher near the middle to end of the song however I cannot do it without going into head voice and when I try to go higher it doesnt sound professional, of course , as I dont have a trained voice but I would like to change that. I do have natural or learned from singing along with records throughout my childhood and teens and 20s with my favourite artists and I do notice a slight vibrato that I either naturally had or I learned from singing alot with records. I def. am a lower register female singer. I have tried to sing scales for females and it is too high. When I sing scales for males I have no problem.

    1. Hey Danny, a Tenor is actually a Male classification, so, if your voice crosses over into the ‘Tenor range’ then you’re likely a Contralto. The reason behind this post was to show you that your vocal Fach classification is irrelevant, and anyone (such as myself being a bass) can learn how to sing in a healthy way and open up their range – you too as a Contralto! If you learn how to breathe properly and learn to modify vowels while placing your voice correctly, that high range will open up like nobody’s business 🙂 You’re welcome to shoot me an email or book a session if you want to start working on your voice!

  2. I meant to say that I have a natural or learned perfect pitch. Pitch is no problem for me. I can sing up and down scales in my range with no problem.

    1. Thanks Danny – pitch comes from bright frequencies, which are fairly natural in a female range, so yeah, pitch isn’t a learned thing (actually, it’s never a learned thing – scales don’t help anyone sing correctly, the opposite in fact). Learning how to modify those vowels and enunce your words and consonants without closing your vocal tract is how you’ll be able to sing ‘songs’ rather than just singing ‘scales’.
