Velvet voice contralto. What is the main secret of his popularity

Contralto is one of the brightest female voices. Its velvety low sound is often compared to a cello. This voice is quite rare in nature, so it is very appreciated for its beautiful timbre and for the fact that it has the lowest notes for women.

HOW AND WHEN A CONTRALTO IS FORMED

This voice has its own characteristics of formation. Most often, it can be determined after 14 or 18 years. The female voice of the contralto is mainly formed of 2 children: low alt, which from an early age has a pronounced chest register or soprano with an inexpressive timbre.

How to increase your voice range?

Each vocalist dreams of having a wide range of working voices. But not everyone can use professional methods to achieve a beautiful sounding voice in any part of the range and try to expand it on their own at the expense of health. To do this correctly, the vocalist needs to follow certain rules.

VOICE POSSIBILITIES AND CONTRACTOR’S AGE
The range of voice changes throughout life. Even for talented children, it is much narrower than that of an adult vocalist with average abilities, so expanding it to 7–9 years is useless. The fact is that in young children, the vocal cords are still being formed. To get a beautiful sound at this age and try to expand the range artificially is a waste of time and energy, because the child’s voice is very fragile and it’s easy to harm the wrong exercises. In the process of singing, its range itself expands, without additional effort. It is best to start active exercises to expand it after the end of young adolescence. Continue reading
