Sometimes You Just Need to Slow Down

As a singer I continue to learn how not only to hear but to listen. You can't help hearing sounds that come into your ears--it's totally passive. Listening on the other hand is active. You're learning, translating, relating, and reacting to the words, notes, rhythms, moods, and emotions of the vocalist and band members. The Amazing Slow Downer is an app that I use especially when I'm trying to learn passages and phrases in songs that I'm really struggling with. The app lets you loop segments, adjust pitch, speed, quality, and more. I think it's definitely worth adding to your singer's toolkit. (Note: I received no compensation from the Amazing Slow Downer. I'm just sharing information in case you'd like to explore the app on your own.)
