Singing Coach Review

Singing Coach SINGINGCoachDo you suffer from Can't-carry-a-tune-itis?

Pitch suffers of the world unite!  There's hope for you yet!

How do I know?

As one who suffers from the above malady, I found relief in SINGINGCoach!

From their website:

How It Works
The concept behind SINGINGCoach is simple: it can be hard to tell if you’re singing in tune! But SINGINGCoach shows you your voice as you sing. Our program uses a patented pitch tracking line technology that analyzes your pitch in real time and shows you if you are too high, too low, or right in tune. It happens so fast you can actually adjust your pitch to correct each note as you sing. With just a little practice you will learn to do it automatically! Your scores will go up to prove it. In very little time, you will sing with confidence and once you are confident your tone will improve.

The Secret IngredientThe secret ingredient of SINGINGCoach is the ability of the software to transpose (that’s a music term for “move up or down”) each song so that it fits comfortably in your vocal range. All you do is select whether you are a high, medium, or low singer (the technical terms are soprano, alto, tenor, etc.) and then the software takes over. It even allows you to slow down a song so that you can learn to sing it in tune at a slower tempo. Once you are confident you can “take it up to tempo.”

Created by brother and sister, Carlo and Alix Franzblau, SingingCoach is a very unique program!!

Our experience:

My children, ages 13, 10, 8 and I couldn't wait to get started. Despite not having a manual to navigate the program, it didn't take long to figure out how to set your vocal range and warm up.  Next, we jumped right in, choosing a beginning song and whether to have the screen view that fine tunes the vocalists singing (showing flat or sharp) or a general "line drawing" across the music which tracks the pitch.

We all had a blast taking turns seeing who could hit the most notes. The program keeps a record of accuracy and tells you how you did at the end of each song. The songs range from beginning, intermediate and advanced so when you are ready for the next level, there are more titles to challenge you.

I have always wanted to learn how to sing,  but lessons were out of the question.  I love that this reasonably priced program gives you instant feedback.  Best of all, my pitch IS improving!

SingingCoach would also make a fun family night activity!

You can also try a FREE trial of SingingCoach Lite.

I received a download of SINGINGCoach free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
