Difference Between Singing Pitch and
Singing Pitch vs
So what's the difference between pitch and tone? The
concepts of singing pitch and tone can be confusing to new
singers so hopefully the following explanation will help
clarify the difference between pitch and tone.
Your singing tone is the quality or type of sound that you
produce, e.g., bright, dark, strident, brittle, full, throaty.
Your singing tone is unique to you, and descriptions of tone
tend to be subjective. Two singers singing the same song in the
same key may sound different - the reason is singing tone. Your
singing tone changes with your moods or emotions. When you sing
your tone changes with the emotional journey of the song and
the style of the music.
Your singing pitch, on the other hand, is the frequency of
sound, e.g. high or low. Singing pitch is an objective
measurement, and a specific pitch will sound the same whether a
voice or instrument produces it. Notes represent the pitches
most commonly used in music.
It is very difficult—and rare—to have perfect pitch. Some
are born with a natural sense of pitch, while others must train
their ears to memorize a note (such as middle C) and base other
pitches off from that note. The latter technique is the best
way to improve your ability to recognize pitch, and can be
practiced and perfected over time.
Now you're clear of the difference between pitch
and tone. To recap, tone is the quality of sound that you
produce, while pitch is the frequency of sound. Tone is a
subjective description, while pitch is an objective
measurement. So do you really think it's possible for someone
to be tone deaf?
