    Hi Camille! Hope you are doing good :)

    I found on your web site some recent additionnal information about classification of the voice types. It made me wonder if head voice is always considered in determining voice type. I've had choir classes and always thought that head voice is included in the female voices AND the male voices, am I wrong? So, for male voice, do we consider head voice to determine voice type (baritone, tenor or bass)? 

    I'll put the sentence that made me a little confused: A Contralto has a range from C3 to F5. Note that for Treble-Clef singers, unlike for the lower voice types (Tenor, Baritone, and Bass), head voice is included in this range.

    Thank you very much again!

    Interesting! I'd include head voice within overall range for any singer, but perhaps other people don't!
