Interval Tuning

ADVANCED – INTERVAL JUMPING ————Very Important!  This makes you able to sing melodies right on pitch. Use vowels.

Four notes in each section; 1) the root and the minor and the root and the major 2) the root and the subdominant and the root and the dominant;

1)    I  & IIIb,   I & III,    and   2) I & IV,   I & V

Then step up a semi tone and do the sequence at that level. Do your vocal range.

AKA =     1.  the   minor 3rd & the major 3rd, … and     2.  the imperfect 4th & the perfect 5th

As you listen take a mental note of the distance between root and the second note

Alternate the vowels every time you do a vocal range, so you do all the five vowels in your vocal range.  Alternate the vowels order.  You do this alternating vowel change each time you move up or down one semi tone.    Alternate the vowels every session so you do all five.  Alternate the jump vocalizing with pure tones and vibrato.

With time constraints allotted to practice, at least do the tuning of your vocal range twice using two vowels.

Occasional extra exercise:   I & VI ,  I  & VIIb,   I & VII,  I & VIII (an octave)

Optional: Do this with a metronome beat playing.
