· Your range is largely determined by the size and shape of your
instrument: your voice. The size and shape of your larynx is the primary
factor in your vocal range. You may be able to push the boundaries, but
your range is largely fixed. Here is a general guideline to help you find
your range:

· *Sopraninos*: Reaching the highest of the ranges, a Sopranino can sing
to D6 and beyond.
