So I was essentially told earlier that my dream of being a female tenor can't happen.  It makes me sad, knowing that I apparently am being held back by societal(?)/school restrictions, that say I apparently can't do it.  I say why not?

 

Apparently in tenor solo pieces, the absolute lowest they sing is the Bb an octave below C4 (Middle C). For altos, the lowest they go is the F below. I can hit the C an octave below, which is so close to full tenor range.

 

But if I went to school as a voice major, I apparently wouldn't be allowed to be classified as a female tenor, because "It just doesn't happen." And that bothers me. Why can't I? If I can do it, then why shouldn't I be allowed?

 

I've never liked being told "you just can't". So part of the reason I want to do this is to buck the system - show people that it can indeed be done.

 

Here's hoping for a more equal future.
