Edited by Toradze, VisiHow, Eng
Hi! You're watching VisiHow. This is a video tutorial series on how to sing. In the previous tutorial, we discussed how to prevent pressing your voice while singing. In this tutorial, we will teach you how to sing in tune.
- 1That means we must recognize the sound by listening to the sound from our mouth that is coming back to our ears. We should always be thinking about the next note or phrase before it happens so that we are better prepared and confident. For example, if we have a 30-second passage with a pitch that we do not know coming up, then the whole passage will be inaccessible for singing as we won't be able to hear its deviation from the required note.For singers and those who are learning how to sing, singing in tune is very important in order to recognize pitch.Advertisement
- 2If you are tone-deaf and unable to determine the next note you are about to sing, record yourself singing. Continue this until you are able to hear and recognize your mistake with your ears. This way, you can connect the ears to the mouth and breathing more easily. We want to know how to sing in tune and focus our ears on what we are singing. Knowing how to stay in tune and listening to ourselves are the most fundamental things besides breathing.To practice singing in tune, it is best to be near a piano or another instrument that can stabilize your pitch.Advertisement
- 3Let's practice listening to ourselves every time we sing a note. Each note will be held for two counts with a one-count rest between notes. This will allow us to understand if we hit the right pitch, whether we are flat or sharp, and if we are singing awkwardly according to ourselves and others. Remember to always start with breathing well and singing by using the diaphragm muscles. Proper breathing will give your lungs enough air to produce a good vibrato and high-quality sound.Now, let's sing the solfeggio C scale, which is do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti, and do.
- 4If you need additional assistance in recognizing pitch errors, you may also try recording yourself, listening to other people sing, or finding a good teacher who can help you stabilize your results and sing in tune.Pausing after each note should allow you to accurately recognize when you have made a mistake.Advertisement
