Pitch Meditation

This simple meditation will help with ear training and pitch control.

Find a comfortable place to sit or lie down. Place a digital chromatic tuner where you can see the results. An application like SingInTuna for the iPhone or other smart device is great for this as well.

  • Try other notes, possibly working up and down a scale, one note a breath.
  • End by giving thanks for the sound.
