Thread Name: Gender and the soprano voice
Subject: RE: Gender and the soprano voice
I have wondered if some of what Charlotte Church has been made to pursue will actually harm her voice, since many teachers will not take on serious voice training of a child. They wait until the individual has gone through puberty before they begin serious technical training. You're right, Steve, as pleasant sounding as she is, the marketing was the greater "art" in this case. It remains to be heard what her real, adult voice will sound like, how much it will change.
