Learn to sing through building on success.

Going from wholesale to retail is an effective strategy for understanding something. Learning to sing is no different. But when do I know it's time to take it to the next level of detail? 


The reviews will tell you. Evaluating your singing is the way to improve yourself. Having a score that you can measure yourself against allows you to improve it next time around. However, having an aggregate number for your singing skills doesn't really help.

 It is best to break the score down into more detailed aspects of the song. Some of the areas, listed in order of importance, are:


 *Be in rhythm sing on the pitch have an appropriate sound volume correct breathing

 *Being in the rhythm is also knowing the words at the right time. 


Singing the wrong words or at the wrong time is immediately noticed by the audience. That's why I put this aspect at the top of the list.


 The next aspect - being wrong, not sounding well or harmonically - can be triggered by good accompaniment for a while. The sound level of the third point does not have such a negative impact on the audience, but for the positive impact it is very important:

 it helps to synchronize with the crowd. 

The last position mentioned

 - correct breathing

 - may be less noticeable than your posture, but it is important in getting you through the entire performance.


 Having problems in these areas can lead to unwanted early fatigue. Getting feedback on these four facets is your path to success. It is difficult for humans to give consistent and objective feedback, as we always take the big picture into account.


 But with consistent and objective feedback, we can measure our progress based on a scale. We can use the level that we reach on that scale, as a reference point on which to build. 

Knowing the level of success we have achieved helps us overcome the times when we get lower scores: We know we could do it sooner! 


And if we don't get to the top of the scale, we know there is room for improvement. For two important aspects, tone and timing accuracy, we can get consistent and objective feedback from computers.


The computer always evaluates accuracy in the same way. Therefore, you can build on your success and continue from this point. Building on success is motivating and brings you closer to your goals.

Even so, the software can only provide limited feedback on your singing as a whole, it can do so in two very important respects: pitch and timing accuracy. And if you are successful in both of these areas, you leave the critics in the field where personal preferences trump objectivity.
