ACCURACY OF VOICE IN SIMPLE PITCH SINGING 33 here is entirely analogous to the form of the curve of pitch discrimi- nation referred to above (16, 13, 15 and 26) but it represents a shorter range, as the voice has a shorter range than the ear. The predominant or modal pitch of a tone of from one to two seconds in length is all that is needed for much of the work in the psychology of pitch singing. The tonoscope can of course meet this condition admir ably, as it is this modal pitch which stands out clear and distinct, forcing itself upon the attention of the experimenter. Book Details.

pitch accuracy of operatic singing voices and hypothesized that high intra-judge reliability would support the ability of expert listeners to rate the overall pitch accuracy of complex voices. In addition, the observation of inter-judge reliability would allow us to investigate consistency between the judges. Participants' singing behaviours were measured against two established and complementary scales: Vocal Pitch Matching Development (VPMD) (Welch, ) and a Singing Voice .   A vocalist’s main instrument is his or her singing voice. It needs to be finely tuned so it hits that perfect vocal pitch. It can take years or training and practice to pull off the perfect pitch, but there are several things you can do to improve you pitch sooner. - remind students to "listen in while singing out" - ask student to evaluate pitch accuracy The general rule is to begin with the "head voice" and bring it down into the "chest voice". Finally, have patience! Most of the children whom you think will never "get it" will find their voice when they are ready. Continue to work for that breakthrough.

In general, experienced listeners rated same-pitch stimulus pairs from the same voice category as more similar than they did same-pitch stimulus pairs from different voice categories. However, at the pitches F5 and A5, listeners rated all stimulus pairs as very similar, regardless of voice category. Pitch was a primary factor in all judgments. Understanding Voice DisordersKnowing how normal voice is produced and the roles the voice box and its parts play in speaking and singing helps patients understand their voice disorders. Voice “As We Know It” The “spoken word” results from three components of voice production: voiced sound, resonance, and articulation.

Vocal range is the distance between the highest and lowest notes the voice can match (McDonald & Simmons, ). It has been said that pitch-matching accuracy and vocal range are highly correlated (Buckton, ; Wassum, ).
