    Did you know there is an article on singing on pitch online that says exactly what you’re saying in this video? They’ve stolen the info from you. Google singing in tune.

    I now understand about singing to chord progressions. But what about when U sing a note that's part of a chord like C7 Major. There's a song on a piano tutorial on youtube and the C Major chord is played and the melody note is B FLAT along with that chord to become C7 major. I'd like more information on this please :) Also, can U gimme tips on singing to arpeggio chords.

    Actually more than your hearing is a cognitive thing. And lots of people that do not sing on tune are more than flat. So is not only working on your hearing but working on understanding if I'm doing the same note that I'm listening to. What you are saying about technique helps this cognitive work that I'm taking about. 🤪

    There is one more reason. You haven't trained your vocal chords to hit the note. Many people are "sliders". They slide up or down to the note because they can't hit it on the first try but they can tell they are off. When I took singing lessons my teacher would run up the scale on the piano and I had to train my voice to hit the note on the first try without sliding.

    1st: select a song
    2nd: listen closely to the song you've chosen

    and just pratice hard so that you will know when to hit the hight notes
    PS: perfect timing makes you singing beautiful

    Even if I sing in tune, my voice remains ugly because I think it's naturally ugly and odd? Is it hopeless to improve?
    For example, I can hit a note perfect but my voice is just ugly, it still be in tune and in pitch with the the piano, but simply ugly.

    I'm pretty shy. And I'm not part of a choir. I sing just for fun. I usually want to sing quietly because I don't want my family hearing because I'm afraid they'll judge my singing (my sister does). It's probably the main reason. I don't have a very good airflow.

    People tells me that whenever I sing, my voice is so good but when I record a song, I sound so bad and it's like I'm just putting an effort to my speaking voice 😂😂

    • Jacob The Snakeup

      a. When you record you hear the vibration off of the environment more than your actual voice. So to sound better in video you could use a closet or material that traps noise instead of reflecting it

      Are you sure you are not just uncomfortable with hearing your own voice? Most of us are when we hear a recording, get used to it and maybe you'll realize you don't sound as bad as you think? Anyway, I feel the same pain my friends

    "[S]inging out of chune means that you're either flat or sharp." Or you might be singing a perfect note, just the wrong one.

      @CHRISTI XX Yes. Or, as the person who uploaded this video said, out of "chune." You may wish to direct your criticism in that direction, kthxbai

    • Tucker Latham
      Tucker Latham 3 months ago

      @CHRISTI XX Or it's simply in a different, rather than off, key, notwithstanding the misuse of capital letters.

      CHRISTI XX 3 months ago +2

      In that case, it’s off KEY.

    When your the bassist and you try singing I found it quite useful too sing in tune with the bass. I dont know if this works for just a vocalist or any other instruments and maybe iam just a sociopath but i think it works

    I've been trying to fix my flat singing for about a year now, although I've been singing in the eighth grade. I'm in the 11th grade now and play tuba, so I knew it couldn't be breath support, and the musical ear was improbable. I listened to this video once and used the posh "cow Brow" exercise and I sang middle c pretty much center on its pitch. I did the same with a few different pitches. Thank you so much. I can start to fix this and be on my way to new techniques.

    Riri Aimmie 6 months ago +1

    Idk why but my singing voice comes out when i sing with other people after 3-5 songs and i sound really nice but when im alone i sound like a dying pelican unu i think its because my talking voice is really low and like my singing voice is really high and i need some tunning and some warm ups but the thing is when i warm up alone my singing voice still doesnt come out. if that makes sense can someone help me unu

    I struggle so much with singing, but I love music and singing and doing musicals. But I suck at vibrato, I struggle with holding a note and staying on the write key, and I have asthma which makes things even worse, and for some reason my nose is always stuffed whenever I sing so my voice sounds nasally... I just want to sing well...

    I am new to singing at 60 and joined a accapella choir which as you can imagine was pretty difficult.
    I used to sing to myself a lot and my husband always said I was singing out of tune, so I stopped singing and now
    I’m finding my voice and this video has really explained to me at last how it is that one ends up singing out of tune.
    Ear training is what I need to focus on as Nicola said the the breathing advice is great. Thank you so much

    Thank you, for the awesome “Sigh Often” tips.
    I am 46 years-old and decided to start pursuing singing last year! I am very grateful for all of the great vocal lessons-especially on TVclip!
    I discovered this video last night and it had changed my outlook! I sound much better and now, I finally feel confidence when singing.
    I plan to take what you taught me and start using ASAP! I’m excited to meet with my singing class later today and show them this awesome vocal performer...MOI!😃😉

    I always wanted to sing and I knew, I was overthinking the process. Now, after watching this concise video, I finally get IT! I need to sigh ofter and speak & sing with a “POSH” tone to keep my soft pallet raised. I will start today and never go back to speaking from my throat (that was brought to my attention during my first lesson).
    I’m excited to watch more of your videos because I think you are awesome and like your style of expressing your thoughts!👌
    I’m a fan and I already subscribed to your channel!👍
    Thank you and GOD Bless!
