Sight-singing & Melody singback practice
Train to sight-sing and sing back melodies with perfect pitch intonation and rhythm
Melody imitation is a brand new and fun activity to improve pitch memory and accuracy: after listening to a melody you will be asked to echo it by singing it into your microphone. EarMaster will then analyze in real-time the accuracy of your performance (intonation and rhythm) and give you detailed feedback by drawing a pitch curve on the notation staff.
There is a direct connection between hearing pitches correctly and singing them accurately (e.g. most singers with poor pitch accuracy usually simply need to train their aural skills). Therefore, ear training and sight-singin go hand in hand and will help you become a better singer and instrumentalist.
Sight-singing is the ability to read and sing music at first sight, also referred to as vocal sight-reading.
Sight-singing not only help your improve your sight-reading skills (the ability to read sheet music), but it will also make you work on your pitch accuracy and rhythmical skills. It is crucial to practice with varied melodies in different keys with rhythmic variations. This is exactly what you can achieve with EarMaster 6's new sight-singing activity!

Just sing, sing, sing!

It is a fun and engaging exercise - and nobody has to hear when you are not singing all that precise...
With ear training, the best results come with short practice sessions done on a regular basis.
The ideal method is to train every single day for about 10 to 20 minutes rather than doing one long sitting once a month.
Sight-singing and melody imitation focus on improving your relative ear skills - you do not need perfect pitch or any supernatural skills!
While some basic music theory notions are needed for proficient sight-reading, there are no requirements to improve your intonation with melodic imitation: just hear the melody and sing it back!
Why sing to a computer?

It is the smartest, most motivating and especially most efficient way to become a better musician and singer.
