Soprano and Alto are the two generalized categories of Women's voice ranges. The corresponding ranges for men are Tenor and Bass. Baritone range lies beween the latter two.The major scale is the scale that is used the most for initial voice training within this range.

Range wise that would be about a low G ascending scalewise about a tenth to the note B.

G major scale = G, A, B, C, D, E, F#, G, A, B.

G is the lowest note used in this example.The starting note of the G major scale. The F# is a part of the G major scale. 7th degree

In the tab example the tempo is set to a slower beat. Sustain all the notes, in each measure, for their full value, giving each note one full count.

Use one breath for each measure. Take a breath after each group of four notes. In music notation, there would be a comma after each of the four notes at the top of the staff. That is the symbol for a breath mark.

As you sing the notes, use the following syllables for ascending and descending.

Do, Re, Me, Fa, Sol, La, Ti, Do, Do, Ti, La, Sol, Fa, Me, Re, Do.

As you get better at breath support, change the tempo to a slower speed for increase breath support. From 30 to 20, and then 20 to 10, if you can handle that. Don't worry if your not there yet. Breath control is what your after.
