Welcome to the Ear Training and Harmony section of 30 Day Singer. Here you can find guidance on popular vocal concerns, like singing in tune, ear training, and how to sing in harmony. It's important for singers to learn ear training in order to recognize pitches - or your ability to recognize a note and replicate that sound. This opens up your ability to improve your intonation and rhythmic skills, improving your musicality and making it so you can harmonize easily with other singers. This is also key to learning and performing songs.
What is intonation? It’s a fancy word for singing in tune and with accuracy. You can think of this tutorial as a way to work on musical target practice with your voice.
Because most popular Western music is built on the major scale, exercises like this can help you to recognize steps and skips in the songs you sing. You’ll begin to develop an awareness of what “fits” within a given scale, and what doesn’t.
