How to Work Out which Part to sing with Superchoir
One of the best things about being a part of Superchoir is that it is entry level. This means if you’ve never sung publicly before, or haven’t sung in a choir before, you won’t be out of your depth!
If you’re new to singing, it can be daunting when joining a choir to be faced with three different tunes to sing. What does alto mean? Why is one part singing a different tune to another?
One of the best things about being a part of Superchoir is that it is entry level. This means if you’ve never sung publicly before, or haven’t sung in a choir before, you won’t be out of your depth! We don’t use sheet music to teach the arrangements as everyone learns by ear!
This doesn’t mean that arrangements aren’t interesting!
Each Superchoir arrangement is sung in at least three parts, meaning that members can sing gorgeous harmonies! With access online to guide tracks and lyrics, it is simple for members to become as confident as possible with their parts!
However if you are new to singing, it may be difficult to know which section to sing with! Here is a guide to help you figure out which part works best for you.
This is the part for the lowest voices, so if you find yourself singing along comfortable to Rag ‘n’ Bone man or Barry White this is the group for you!
Most of the baritones in our online choir are men. However, if you’re female identifying or non-binary and can sing low, baritone is the perfect fit. We have several female members who often sing baritone, including Emily and Rose from the Superchoir team!
This is the middle section therefore if you feel like your voice is the perfect middle between high and low, it’s for you!
Most of our members in our virtual choir are alto, and it is a good section to join to start with if you’re uncertain where your voice best suits.
If you love singing along to Annie Lennox or Cher, alto could be the perfect fit for you!
This is the highest part in our online choir! If you love a good high belt or singing the whistle tones with Ariana Grande, soprano could well be the perfect fit.
Most Superchoir arrangements divide the melody equally between all the parts, so everyone gets the opportunity to sing along to the tune they are familiar with. This helps highlight how every part is equal.
Don’t be afraid to try different parts and figure out which you are most comfortable with! Many members of Superchoir chop and change between various parts depending on which arrangement they’re singing. This is because some are higher or lower than others.
However, make sure to never push your voice beyond what is comfortable for you!
