So, imagine my delight when, some time ago, I discovered David had prepared a fantastic article called "Training the Contralto Voice." In it, David talks about the registration changes for the contralto, her range (one of the first people to suggest that F3 was not the bottom of the contralto range), and the importance of her middle register. I quoted David in my article "About the Contralto Voice" particularly with respect to registration and range.
David has now produced three new articles via his Facebook Page, which he has kindly allowed me to reproduce on the site. Please note that these articles are all © David L. Jones 2013. If I find any evidence that someone has reproduced these without David's permission, then I shall remove them from the site immediately.
The articles are all available via the Resources Page of the Contralto Corner site, but for ease, the links are listed below:
1. On the Contralto Singer
2. Types of Contraltos
3. A Little More on the Contralto
Many thanks for reading this. I cannot stress strongly enough that any contralto, or singing teacher who is training a contralto, should read these three articles, and the original article on David's website.
All the best,
