Singing Exercises To Improve Pitch

In this video you will learn some singing exercises to improve pitch. Once you do this you will sound much more professional and enjoyable to listen to.

When you first begin to sing, staying on pitch can be difficult.

And falling badly out of tune in front of an audience can be a little embarrassing.

However with a few simple exercises you will learn to sing beautifully in tune, all the time. Watch the video above to see how.

There Are Two Important Things To
Pay Attention To With This Exercise

As you can see from the exercise in the video (begins at the 45 second mark), using a simple "Ooooo" sound on a scale like this is very helpful because it allows us to concentrate fully on staying in tune.

Watch me demonstrate the video here: 

And here is an audio file so you can practice along. 

The important thing to pay attention to while doing the exercise, is to make sure you keep your body quite still as you're singing. 

Why is keeping still so important?

The reason is that it's your vocal chords that control what note you're hitting.

Many singers will tend to move their jaw around, their head around, and even their whole body to try and get their notes.

This is counter productive because the only thing that has the ability to adjust the note is your vocal chords.

Doing the exercise in the video above will help you, because by keeping everything else still, you get an understanding of how your vocal chords feel when they are making their adjustments.

You Must Hear Your Voice To Sing On Pitch

The other important factor to hitting your notes in tune is you need to be able to hear your voice, and exactly what pitch it is on.

The best way for improving your ear for pitch is to focus your hearing to the middle of your forehead.

If you listen carefully to the notes right in your forehead, you will begin to hear exactly what note you are hitting.

Focus on hearing your sound in the middle of your forehead. This will help you hear if you are in tune or not.

The more you do this, the clearer you will hear yourself. And the better you'll be able to control your voice so it's always in tune.

These Singing Exercises To Improve Pitch Work

The exercise in the video is incredibly simple, but if you practice it, it can work wonders on your voice. It will also help your technique, because the more you allow your vocal chords to do the work (without allowing all your non-singing related muscles from interfering) the better your voice will sound.

And you will also begin to be able to understand when you are hitting your notes perfectly in tune, and when you are not.

So practice it often and enjoy the improvements that it brings!
