Training the Uncertain Singer
Cambiata Institute of America for Early Adolescent Vocal Music at University of North Texas https://cambiata.music.unt.edu/home
Training the Uncertain Singer When students cannot sing certain pitches, it is not an indication that they are tone-deaf. The amount of talent, gift, or innate ability to sing tunefully varies only slightly among individuals. The capacity to make music vocally is inherent in everyone, just as the capacity to learn is inherent. How quickly and how early in life students learn to sing tunefully varies according to their capacity to make music. … In most cases, the inability to match pitch is a result of a lack of understanding about the singing voice. Students often relate the singing voice to the speaking voice. They do not realize how much energy it takes to produce tones substantially higher than those they use in speaking. This is particularly true with the young baritone, who has to learn to deal with his rapidly growing vocal apparatus that often reacts in a rather erratic manner. However, any students who are inexperienced singers might have to be taught to understand their vocal instruments and how to use them properly…..
