I understand that there are different ranges of singers, ie Bass, Baritone, Tenor etc etc, but what is the average pitch range of a male's singing chest voice?
- Average untrained baritone male range is F2-D4
- Average untrained tenor A2-Ab4 and will have naturally resonant falsetto/head voice up to Eb5 that can slide in and out of call register.
- Average Trained Baritone range is F2-G4(A4 Extreme).
- Average Trained tenor range is A2-C5(Eb5 Extreme). falsetto range can vary between the two, in fact some baritones can have higher falsettos than tenors it will just be disconnected.
A natural True bass is the most rare but on average their range is
- Untrained D2-B3
- Trained B1-C4
The average male is a baritone with a range of between 1.4 and 2.0 octaves. I learned this in a workshop on writing melodies for songs. This range starts with the chest voice and shifts to head voice at the top of the range. By head voice I do not mean falsetto. Shifting to falsetto would probably add an additional two to three notes. Most males who consider themselves "singers" have a range on the high end of average to above average. All singers have a point where they must shift from their lower register to their upper register (not falsetto) as they sing higher. Well trained singers can make this transition come across very smoothly to the listener. Untrained singers may have an abrupt shift in tonal character when the switch registers.
