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 from 2 children: low alt, which from an early age has a pronounced chest register or soprano with an inexpressive timbre. Usually by the transitional age, the first voice acquires a beautiful low sound with a velvety chest register, and the second unexpectedly expands the range for everyone and begins to sound beautiful after adolescence.

How to restore a broken voice

Alas, with the loss of voice, sooner or later, every vocalist is faced. Very often, the cause of a broken voice is not intensive vocals, but a cry, especially in a state of intense anger or affect. A torn voice disappears not like during a cold, but suddenly right after a scream or even during it. He immediately becomes hoarse and then disappears altogether. A vocalist can only speak in a whisper, in pain. These are the steps you need to take right after you pluck your voice. FIRST AID WITH A BROKEN VOICE In order to avoid the dangerous effects of a voice injury, you first need to take it as soon as you feel a rash and sudden hoarseness. Shut up immediately. In the first minutes, it can only be explained by gestures, because, depending on the degree of damage to the ligaments, bleeding may open. Continue reading

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 beautiful voices in any part of the range and try to expand it independently 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 varies 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. After 10-12 years, voice formation reaches the active phase. At this time, the chest expands, the voice gradually begins to acquire its adult sound. The first stage of transitional age is approaching, in some children (especially boys), a mutational or pre-mutational period. Continue reading
