Welcome to The Voice Connection Sound Off; a forum for users of books like Raise Your Voice, Melody to Madness, The Ultimate Breathing Workout, and Unleash Your Creative Mindset, as well as a place for Vendera Vocal Academy members to interact.

This message board was created so that singers could come together and "sound off" to help support each other during vocal development and the creative process of unleashing the creative spark that occurs when writing and producing music. Currently, myself and vocal coaches Ben Valen, Ray West, and Ryan Wall are here to respond periodicially to your questions, with new vocal coaches coming soon. But, feel free to help each other too:)

This board is here for you to ask questions about my and my fellow coach's books, videos, and MP3 programs, as well as offer others help with our vocal techniques. You may also post videos of yourself and your band to share your music and ask for critiques.

Please refrain from negative comments, profanities, spamming, and inappropriate criticisms of vocal methodologies, vocal coaches, and singers. All negative posts will be deleted and subject to banning without question. I will not respond to negative posts, because, as Mark Twain once said, “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.” With that said, positive criticism is welcome because that is how you'll grow as a singer during the training process.

Perfect pitch

I was looking some stuff on the internet yesterday and run into some perfect ptich topic and now i wonder what perfect pitch really is and can it be developed.I know perfect pitch is as it says an ability to recognize all pitches perfectly just by ear but i want to know what people with perfect pitch hear that others dont, is there some god given special thing in their brains that gives them that ability or is it something that can be developed.I personally belive that anything can be achieved if you are willing to put in time and effort but there are some people saying that something like perfect pitch you have to be born with(it can be that some people are lucky and were born with it, but I think it can also be developed).I improved my pitch alot since i started practising RYV but its not where I want it to be, I really want this part of my musical abilities to be as best as possible.There is some course I discovered called perfect pitch ear training supercourse or something like that which says that you will hear dramatic difference after just 1 lesson and it gives you 40 day money back.I dont belive in something like immediate results but this one makes me curious.So to sum it up what do you think is there a way to develop this skill and is it worth the time and effort?I dont want to waste my time with anything that doesnt work because there is so much more i want to learn and master.Peace!

Re: Perfect pitch

Perfect pitch is knowing the exact pitch. I do not have perfect pich, but I do have relative pitch. I can hear my guitarist and sing along in tune. As long as you can do that, you're fine. Nothing wrong with going deeper into mastering pitch so you can hear and name the notes, but I don't feel it is necessary to become a better singer.
