IntroductionFrom: Key to Perfect Pitch and Intonation
by Camille van Niekerk
Welcome to your tutorial on intonation! I’m especially excited to teach on this subject, because I’m so passionate about it. Intonation is defined as accuracy of pitch in singing or playing. With singing, this is always at the front of your mind. As singers, we train our ears and practice to develop muscle memory, but perfect intonation will never just happen. It takes intention in the moment.
