Learn how to find your vocal range in 5 minutes using each vowel and explore the total scope of notes you can make sound on.
Vowel pronunciation differs based on language. There are also variations (like Diphthongs), however, these are very basic example of vowels.
I am using the traditional Italian vowels, or more fitting, Maori vowels, which is the indigenous language where I live in New Zealand.
The vowels sound like this:
A = AH (as in father)
E = EH (as in air)
I = EE (as in flee)
O = OH (as in go)
U = OO (as in shoe)
In this video find your vocal range in 5 minutes using each vowel:
- 00:00 – Intro
- 00:40 – “A” Ascending
- 01:19 – “A” Descending
- 01:50 – “E” Ascending
- 02:27 – “E” Descending
- 02:59 – “I” Ascending
- 03:27 – “I” Descending
- 04:00 – “O” Ascending
- 04:28 – “O” Descending
- 05:09 – “U” Ascending
- 05:43 – “U” Descending
What is your vocal range on each vowel?
At the end of the video, you should have a list outlining your range on each of the vowels.
You can write it like this (I’m using my range as an example and it may differ on each vowel for you – there’s no right or wrong – it’s YOUR vocal range):
A = B2-E6
E = B2-E6
I = B2-E6
O = B2-E6
U = B2-E6
These are the total scope of notes you can make sound on. Your highest and lowest note within each different tonal voice quality or coordination (aka registers in traditional vocal terminology).
Did you know that you have a ‘sweet spot’ vocally? Where every note in that area sounds awesome!
Defining these elements are the first step in deciding to extend your vocal range. Amazingly, you may not even need to!
