Getting started as a solo singer: help!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have sung soprano in several community choirs, and have a strong voice, a little low for a full soprano role, but accurate (far less accurate and less passionate in lower ranges).  I have not picked up confidence for solo singing though because I struggle with timing, so far dealt with by following another strong singer.

For the last few years, and the foreseeable future, I am living in a place with no suitable choirs to join :(  But recently, the chance to sing solo has come up, with a pianist, and possibly also accompanied  by a guitar and harmonica. This is good, but scary!

For my first attempt at singing solo, I am thinking of Sinner Man, a song I have sung in choir and enjoy very much.  When I look at the sheet music available, I see it available in different keys.  Now, I like sheet music because I can follow the dots up and down, and can get some idea of the timing, but I know nothing of the key.  

Can anyone advise on how to choose the right key?

Yes, use the key that best fits you. Where you can sing the whole thing with complete control.
