Beginner/Intermediate Exercise for Pitch Matching & Moving Between Pitches

INSTRUCTIONS: This exercise is for a beginner/intermediate vocalist who can match some pitches. Focus on moving from pitch to pitch using the vowel 'ah'. Ah is a neutral vowel that should be easier to train with. Move from pitch to pitch as the track moves up the scale. The pitch will move up 4 pitches/notes, you will sing the following matching pitch as it goes up: "Ah Ah Ah Ah" Then it moves down four pitches starting at the last pitch/note that was played for you, follow it down matching pitch: "Ah Ah Ah Ah" This is repeated again using the same pitches. THEN there is a chromatic movement (it goes up 1/2 step) and it repeats again.

Matching pitch and pitch movement is critical. Give yourself time to learn how to do this and if you have trouble, please contact us!

Singing Vowels for the Serious Singer

The table below summarizes certain singing vowels and their qualities. Use the audio track to practice each vowel. The track plays a pitch - match each pitch using a vowel. Pay attention to where the vowel's acoustic energy sits and if the vowel feels wide or narrow. It is important that you are able to pay attention and feel this energy so you can strategically use these vowels when performing.
