Singing in tune means the singer is adjusting their pitch according to that of the musical notes being played. Of course, then, it sounds definitely more pleasing than if they were singing without any notes in their background. The melody, after all, comes only when there is a sweet blend of natural and artificial notes.

How Do They Do it?

If you can imitate the pitch of the note being played, you do have the ability to sing in tune. Some people have an almost natural appreciation for the pitches of different musical instruments. They know, for example, what a high or low note sounds like. For them, adjusting their voice to bring it in line with the notes of any musical instrument would be no trouble.

Imagine it First!

Before you begin to sing in tune, you ought to vividly imagine the pitch of the note you want to sing along with. How high or low is it?

Imagine yourself singing in tune with that note. But don’t sing just now. First close your eyes, and imagine you’re singing exactly in tune. This way, when you actually sing, you’ll have a psychological concept to rely on and follow.

Before Moving On…

Before trying to sing along with any note, listen to it very cautiously. Only then should you begin to sing at all. This way the air you let out would be just enough to produce the pitch you want to create.

You may want to sing in a microphone with an earphone attached to it on the other side. Some people like to listen to themselves singing like this as it gives them a more objective idea about how far or near they are from the required pitch.

Too High or Too Low?

When trying to sing in tune, it’s necessary for the novice singer to be able to find out if they are producing too high or too low notes.

If the required note is sharper than your own, it means your own is a lower one.

Similarly, if you own note sounds sharper to you, it means you need to lower it to be in tune with your piano or guitar.

If you practice regularly, you’ll learn sooner than you can even hope. Over time, you will certainly be able to sing complete songs in tune – and that too without hesitation!
