Singing training is traditionally based on a teacher-student apprentice model in which technique is handed down from generation to generation. Real-time visual feedback provides a very useful way of enhancing this process as well as providing the basis for quantifying and monitoring progress. We have developed Windows-based software for voice training which is being used in singing studios, and work is in progress to monitor its usefulness, to make modifications as appropriate and to develop a new range of analysis algorithms.
