eMedia Singing For Dummies from eMedia Music is a CD-ROM packed with lessons to both teach you to sing or improve your already existing vocal quality. With over 80 step-by-step lessons and 30 full-motion videos, this system offers you an interactive method to both record and track your progress.
As you sing, the notes are highlighted. Further, the CD-ROM lets you know if you're on or off key. Your piano accompanist nurses you along, keeping you informed of your progress. A digital metronome allows you to choose the speed of your song and helps keep the beat.
Record yourself and play it back - note your progress - make changes - tweak your voice and come up with new ideas for your vocals. The seven chapters cover a wide expanse of musical concepts-pitch, sight reading, breathing, resonance as well as exercise and much more. All of this is taught on screen by Ory Brown who has over 25 years of experience.
