If you are performing ‘covers’ then start by singing along with the artists record. If your voice feels natural and comfortable performing in the same key as the original singer then the ‘key’ is probably ok for you! Most sheet music are written in the same key as the artists recording, but you should be aware that many books/music are often transposed into easier to sing keys, so care should be taken when purchasing. Even if the songs original key is easy for you to sing or perform in, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it is the ‘correct key’ per say for you to perform in. But this is usually the case, singers who have a reasonably good range may find that taking the music up or down a tone or semi-tone helps to avoid awkward ‘bridges’ or ‘gaps’ in their vocal range. these can be corrected with exercises/lessons, or utilise the best tonal qualities of their voice, strengths and vocal style – recording your rehearsals for later review is a great aid to finding the keys in which your voice excel – or not.

A singers range may be extended in time with lessons but the term ‘extending the range’ is not really appropriate. Your actual range has been fixed already from birth. You cannot sing, or stretch your voice beyond its natural capabilities, without causing damage to the vocal chords. This is also known as vocal folds. When a singer or teacher talks of extending their range, they are referring to improving, building the top or bottom notes to the point where they are as comfortable to sing as the notes in between. At this point it should be noted that a singers range has little to do with their vocal ability. But a reasonable range allows the singer to perform a wider repertoire of music and is essential for those who wish to perform operatic and classical music, there are plenty of popular vocalists who only use a small proportion or possess a limited vocal range.
