Musical Ears


Some of these exercises are very advanced.  Do not do them if you are not at the level.  You can cause vocal fatigue, strain, or injury if you do them incorrectly or for too long a time.  If you get hoarse or feel pain, STOP.   Pain does not equal gain.  Pain when you sing should be regarded as a warning sign.
