Identify Your Vocal Range
The first step to learning any song effectively is to analyze your voice and understand your vocal range. Amy Lee is known for her mezzo-soprano voice, but if your vocal range is different, don’t fret. You can modify the song to suit your voice. Use the Vocal range test to determine your range.
