Are You An Tenor/Baritone?
Tenors and Baritones have a similar ‘core’ range – the bottom of a Baritone’s range will usually be about half an octave lower, and the top of a Tenor half an octave higher, but for simplicity, we’ve aimed to keep most of the songs in the mid-range for both voices to allow doubling.
You are probably a Tenor if these songs are in your comfortable range:
- “Let It Be” — The Beatles
- “Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)” — Green Day
- “Hey Jude” — The Beatles
You are probably a Baritone if these songs are in your comfortable range:
- “All You Need is Love” – The Beatles
- “Can’t Help Falling in Love” – Elvis Presley

How To Practise
The rehearsal tracks have the Tenor/Baritone part boosted to make it easier to hear. Rather than trying to learn the entire song in one go, work on it section by section – this might be just a few bars at a time. Listen to a section twice, then sing along with it three times, then try to sing it along with the section before. Slowly build up the song this way, until you are able to sing all the sections together.
Even if you don’t read music, follow along with the score as you listen to the recording – you will see the patterns of notes going up and down, and the faster and slower bits, even if you don’t know what each blob, dot and squiggle actually means!
