Building on the first version of their vocal-training software program, eMedia Music's downloadable Singing for Dummies Level 2 for Windows provides over 90 interactive, easy-to-follow lessons that teach you how to sing or improve your voice. Whether you're just getting started or have some experience under your belt, this course can benefit you. Professional singer and voice teacher Ory Brown, M.M., brings 25 years of teaching and performance experience to the table, including appearances at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and on The Late Show with David Letterman.
Vocal exercises and songs for both males and females in high and low ranges are included. Enjoy over 40 songs in multiple styles, including hits from legends such as John Lennon and Creedence Clearwater Revival.
You'll learn about various topics, including consonants, sustained singing, vocal agility, and vocal expression, and you'll gain a greater understanding of both physical and musical techniques that will improve your voice. The software's Interactive Feedback technology listens to you sing via the microphone you supply, and shows you whether you're singing in tune. Performance Evaluation tracks pitch and rhythm as you move through a song, using color-coded notes to indicate places where you sang flat, sharp, or on point. You are then given an overall score to help you keep track of your progress.
Over 90 interactive, full-screen vocal lessons covering topics such as the following:
Proprioception (unconscious perception/awareness of movement, orientation, and position of the body)
Using the soft palate
Melisma (a group of notes or tones sung on one syllable in plainsong)
Parts of the singing voice
Separate male and female tracks, each with selectable high and low recordings to match your vocal range
Music-tracking highlights notes as they're heard
Interactive Feedback technology listens to your singing using an optional microphone plugged into the computer, then shows you the notes you're singing on screen. Color coding indicates whether you're on or off the mark for each note, with correct notes being highlighted in green, and an arrow shows whether you need to sing higher or lower to correct an inaccurate note
Performance Evaluation shows you spots where you sang flat, sharp, or in tune, and grades your overall performance (including rhythms) for an entire piece
Learn sight reading and train your ear with interactive flash cards and review quizzes
Great songs in a variety of styles, including "Imagine" by John Lennon, "Midnight Special" (made famous by Creedence Clearwater Revival), "Danny Boy" (made famous by Harry Connick, Jr.), "Joy to the World," and many more
