Gossip:

5/5

User reviews of the app are very positive, with comments such as the app "has really helped me to boost my confidence and my singing ability."

Musician's Note

The app is split into three distinct sections: Train Your Ears, Train Your Mind, and Train Your Voice. You can chose to focus on a particular category to work on, or swap between them for a more varied practice session. Although the app starts out very basic (which is great if you do not know anything about singing or music theory), it does get more advanced as you progress, making it useful for more experienced singers. By turning singing practice into a game, it makes working on improving your vocal abilities fun as well as offering structure to your rehearsals. The app cannot offer all the support and guidance of a professional singing teacher, however the app if useful if this is not and option as well as complimenting what you learn in singing lessons.
