    What is the voice range of Suzuki M 37C? Is it Alto or Soprano?

    In practice a 37 note melodica covers some of both ranges. The starting noe is F below middle C and you have 3 fulll octaves in the instrument. Only if you plan to play with someone would you need a purely ‘SOPRANO” melodica. Some of the Suzuki sales sites have excellents charts on voice range.

    I had a chance to find the charts I told you about. The 32 note soprano is a whole 8va higher than a 32 note alto. But it haas only the half-octave higher than a 37. I hope this helps.

    Treble clef music will be fine. Ledger lines can be used for all the note below (F BELOW middle C) for alto voice and the lines above the staff for the soprano note through F3.

    Range of Hohner 32 and similar instr. corresponds approximately to the trumpet (the difference only in semitone). Therefore, sometimes i play on melodica the trumpet part in dixieland style .Trumpetlodica
