eMedia Singing For Dummies offers a fun and easy way to learn to sing at your own pace. Professional voice instructor Ory Brown, M.M., guides you through over 80 step-by-step lessons with over 30 full-motion videos and animations.
The easy-to-follow lessons show you how to sing in time and in tune, use proper singing technique, and develop and project your voice. Interactive Feedback listens to you sing using the computer microphone, and lets you see if you are singing a note in tune. Performance Evaluation tracks the pitch and rhythm as you sing an entire piece. Color-coded notes show where you sang flat, sharp or in tune, and the performance is given an overall score to make it easy to see your progress.
The over 35 songs are available as live recordings for male and female voices in both high and low ranges to better suit your voice. It’s fun to sing with a pianist accompanying you, so we’ve included professionally arranged live piano accompaniments along with MIDI versions that can be slowed down or sped up. Song looping also lets you select and repeat any particular section of music you may wish to practice at a slower speed. eMedia Singing For Dummies also includes a built-in Metronome and Recorder.
eMedia Singing For Dummies features hit songs including “Imagine,” by John Lennon; “Dancing in the Street,” made famous by Martha and the Vandellas, David Bowie and Mick Jagger, and Van Halen; and “Stop! In the Name of Love,” made famous by Diana Ross and the Supremes.
Instructor Ory Brown, M.M., has over 25 years of experience as a voice teacher at universities and private schools. She also has a successful singing career, including appearances at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and on “The Late Show” with David Letterman.
