Publication Detail
Practical Voice Analyses and their Application in the Studio
Modern personal computers are fast enough to analyze singing and provide real-time visual feedback of relevant acoustic elements. This feedback provides a quantitative dimension to the learning process in support of developing appropriate sung outputs. However, no computer-based system can replace the singing teacher, as the qualitative listening of an experienced musician cannot be replicated by a computer algorithm. The application of real-time visual displays can facilitate greater efficiency in learning fundamental skills through direct feedback in lessons and during private practice, leaving the teacher more time to work on qualitative aspects of performance that a computer cannot contribute to, such as stagecraft, interpretation, understanding the words, collaborating with an accompanist, and when to use different voice qualities. This chapter describes typical displays that are used in real-time visual feedback systems for singing training and considers how spectrography in particular can be used in pedagogical practice in the voice studio.
