If you’re someone who loves belting out the best songs anytime and anywhere, Musicnotes Singer Pro sheet music is perfect for you! Singer Pro is a type of scoring allowing the singer to improvise and embellish vocally. The piano part is an accompaniment only and does not duplicate the melody line of the vocal staff/staves.
Our Singer Pro sheet music is notated just as you hear on your favorite artists’ recordings. You can also browse specific song details to help you decide if the song’s key will fit your vocal range, and even change the key or request a transposition if it doesn’t.
Singer Pro Structure
Example: “Someone Like You.”
You will notice that the vocal line is separated from the piano accompaniment, making it easy to read and follow along. You will also notice guitar tabs and chords, creating even more instrumentation possibilities!
Singer Pro “Quick Details”

How to Find Your Vocal Range
We mentioned that each Singer Pro arrangement displays the songs vocal range. But what if you don’t know your vocal range?
Warm up your voice with a few exercises. Try singing a children’s song or a tune you’re comfortable with. (Remember the scene from The Little Mermaid where Ariel was showing off her voice? That’s a great example of a vocal exercise!)
What are the lowest and highest notes you can comfortably sing?
- Your vocal range will be determined by the lowest note you can sing comfortably to the highest note. A song’s vocal range is listed the same way; from the lowest note to the highest note in the sheet music.
- Start by finding middle C (which is represented as C4 on our sheet music).
- The number “4” represents an octave on the keyboard, so all of the notes in the “C” octave, starting with middle C will have a “4” after it. The next octave will start with C5; the previous with C3 and so on. If you’re curious as to what voice part you fit into (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass), click here.
