All singing voices are divided into female, male and children’s. The main female voices are soprano, mezzo-soprano and contralto, and the most common male voices are tenor, baritone and bass.

RAKHMANINOV: THREE VICTORIES OVER YOURSELF

The ancient sages said: “It is human nature to make mistakes.” Unfortunately, there are also such serious wrong decisions or actions that can harm our whole future life. We ourselves choose which way to go: the difficult one that leads us to a cherished dream, a wonderful goal, or, on the contrary, we prefer a beautiful and easy road, which often turns out to be false, deadlock.
