Question of the Week

by Melissa Wimbish

I was rehearsing with a pianist yesterday, and rather than just asking him to play my notes during places I was fishing for the pitches, I took out my iPhone and consulted the all-knowing Pocket Piano. He LOLd and said that he doesn’t know a singer who doesn’t have that app….

So, I just asked him to play my notes.

Side note, what is wrong with our profession? We’re so afraid of looking dumb, that we rely on a little pocket keyboard to help us feel better about not having to ask for our notes because it’s “SO” unprofessional to be unsure about anything. Little do we know, it’s way more “special” looking to hold a tiny piano to your ear as you try to put your gi-normous fingers to the right key. Hahahaha – we’re silly! (But, that app is actually hella helpful and I wouldn’t delete it for all of the gold at the bottom of the Cracker Jack box!)

What is the most helpful music-related application for your personal voice study?

  1. Prior to Iphones (yes there was such a day) I was driving to a lesson and knew I was having trouble with one note in a piece. So i put my giant portable keyboard in the front seat and hit that note (while I was driving) every time I came to it. Good lord!
