What is Singing Pitch Trainer (SPT)?
Singing Pitch Trainer trains you to sing on pitch, as well as learn melody lines (sequences) and runs.
SPT allows you to hear each note at a pace you can handle, and not skip any notes you may not be noticing.
SPT also makes you sing notes clearly, as opposed to ‘mushing’ them together.
SPT gradually builds your speed at hearing and singing notes together as a group of notes, and makes you do enough reps for your voice to reach a professional level on the particular lines you are learning.
Mastering many difficult lines is the key to building up your overall level.
Singing things that are already easy for you won’t make you improve, so this program helps you focus on things that are challenging and push you to a new level gradually.
Recommended for use on computers using the Chrome browser. It may work on your mobile/tablet device, but may have limited functionality, such as speed/performance or other issues. Workflow for using SPT

Learning Pitch Accuracy With Singing Pitch Trainer (Using Any Song You Want)
Sing sequences of notes from a run or melody for example, and check you are on pitch as you go through the notes slowly. Fix trouble notes by highlighting them in the sequence and focus on them for a while.
Learn Short Runs With Singing Pitch Trainer
See short runs note by note, learn the direction of the notes (up or down or same), assign a number to them to help you organise them in your mind, and see the vowels/lyrics you have to sing. Additional info included such as note name, intervals and scale degrees.
Learn steady breath control with the green box which tells you how long you have held a perfect pitch note for. Record blue box tells you the longest time you achieved.
Focus in on the 2 notes where you go from chest to falsetto or falsetto to chest, which I call ‘Blend’. The ability to select those notes only will help you go at a pace you can help and develop speed on the blend skill.
Learn long runs, by using numbers to organise them into smaller sections, starting on a ‘1’ again when it’s a new section of a long run. Select sections and repeat them only, then combine sections. Gradually build your memory capacity, database of runs patterns, and your speed.
Increase your range up and down, by changing the key of the phrase and doing repetitions across your whole range, gradually stretching your ability to reach new highs and lows.
Auto Key & Auto Speed
With the repeat/single button on, you have the option to change key or speed automatically after a certain number of reps. For example, if the value is 2 for Auto key, the sequence with go up one key after 2 reps. If the Auto speed value is 2, the speed will go up (in 5s) after 2 reps of the sequence after completed.
On the sequence page, clicking Open brings you to any sequences you have saved. You can import, export, open or create links that I or others can access.
Select the notes you want to play as a chord. Click the Chord/Note toggle button to turn on chord mode. When you press play, the selected notes will play at the same, instead of as a sequence/melody. This is a chord.
The number under the notes are scale degrees. On the top right, you can see the notes in the D major key. For example, the F# note is the 3rd in the list from the left. You will notice the sequence contains F#4 first. Under it is the number 3. The scale degree is 3, because F# is the 3rd note in the key/scale. For example the scale degrees are D=1 E=2 F#=3 G=4 A=5 B=6 C#=7. If you were to change key, the notes would have different scale degrees dependent on their position in that new key.
Click play on the stop watch to track how much time you are spending on an exercise. Click Sessions to see your results in minutes or hours or sessions. A ‘session’ is one 5 minute exercise. For example, if you practice your pitch for 5 minutes approximately, click the Pitch button, and the number will increment by 1. If you switch to minutes view it will show 5.
Change the mode of the scale. For example, here I entered the scale as pictured in the top right box. Then I pressed Harmony up once (bottom left). This changed the notes (centre) to go up one the next mode of the key/scale. Each key has 7 possible modes. You use the same notes in the key/scale, but you simply start from a different notes. For example the first mode in this key of D major starts on D, second mode is E, third mode is F# start, G is fourth mode start note etc. The names of the modes are 1=Ionian or Major, 2=Dorian, 3=Phrygian, 4=Lydian, 5=Mixolydian, 6=Aeolian or Minor, 7=Locrian. Being able to sing all the modes increased your musical capability. Key Signatures
When you choose a key signature, 5 of the notes on the piano will turn light grey. This means those notes are not in your selected key, so they won’t occur in the song, unless it is a complex song which might use out of key notes. This makes it easier to find the notes for a song. Chord Progressions
Click the Chord/Note toggle button. Click Chord Sequence. You will see 8 circles pop up. Select the notes you want for your first chord, then click 1. Those notes will be played as the first chord. Select the next set of notes for second chord, and click 2. They will play as the second chord, and so on. When you click play, the chord you have stored will play as a loop. Assisted/Acapella
Click the Acapella/Assist toggle button to turn the sound of the piano off or on. Visually, the notes will keep playing and the pitch chart will still measure you. Use this feature when you want to remove the crutch of the piano but still check you are singing correctly, and to check if you remember the notes of a sequence without hearing the piano. Intervals
These bubbles are the interval between the two notes. For example, the first two notes are F#4 and G4. The interval between them is an ascending minor 2nd (up arrow m2).
