eMedia Music Corp. has released Singing For Dummies software for those wishing to learn to sing better. Its Interactive Feedback technology listens as you sing and tells you whether you are too high, too low, or right in tune.
“We’re excited about Singing For Dummies. eMedia has taken voice training traditions developed over centuries and, for the first time, enhanced them with cutting-edge, interactive technology that gives voice students feedback on their singing. Singing For Dummies is keeping the brand’s promise of making everything easier by providing a fun new way to learn these techniques for singing well,” says Marc J Mikulich, vice president, Brand Management and International Rights, Wiley Publishing.
The lessons show you how to sing in time and in tune, use proper singing technique, and develop and project your voice. Professional voice instructor Ory Brown, M.M., guides you through over 80 step-by-step lessons with over 30 full-motion videos and animations.
The 35-plus songs are available as live recordings for male and female voices in both high and low ranges. eMedia has included professionally arranged live piano accompaniments along with MIDI versions that can be slowed down or sped up. Song looping also lets you select and repeat any particular section of music you may wish to practice at a slower speed. Singing For Dummies also includes a built-in Metronome and Recorder.
The eMedia Singing For Dummies CD-ROM will be released next month and will be available at retail stores nationwide and online at an estimated retail price of US$29.95. The CD-ROM will be a hybrid for both Mac OS X and Windows platforms and the software will also be available for download at emediamusic.com and select online retailers.
