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!
