How To Sing With Better Pitch
I want to give you a couple of exercises that can help you to sing with better pitch. Singing out of key is one of those things that are mostly unforgivable, as far as an audience is concerned. So, if your pitch is weak, and you would like to eventually sing for crowds of people, then you’ve got some work to do. But don’t be discouraged; you can get there. And hopefully these exercises will help.
The first exercise is a matching exercise. And you will need some kind of instrument for this one, for both of these, actually. A piano, keyboard or guitar will work just fine. And, if you don’t have any of those you can use the keyboard in Garage Band, if you have a Mac or find one online to mess with, which should be relatively easy.
Okay, hit one note, any note. It’s better if it is someone in the middle of your range, but any note will due, really. Listen to the note; let it sink in. Try to match the note. Do this a few times with the same note, and then move on to another.
It might be a good idea to invite someone else to listen along, if you feel like you can’t tell if you are matching the pitch well.
The next one is sliding. Hit a note and see if you can slide up to it, or down to it.
These should help. And a good set of vocal exercises will help strengthen your voice and give you more control, too.
Hope this helps!
