    Hi Michael, I'm back w/ another one of my puzzles. I frequently read about singing what your practicing. And I really need the ear training. Question!
    What do you sing. The bass has a greater range then my off key voice. Do you doe, ray , me, or da, da da, sing the notes A, Ab, etc.? The range issue really has me stumped :confused:
    Thanks in advance

  2. Maybe sing an octave lower? Or sing in your head voice rather than your full voice, if possible?

    I sing what I am playing in some unintelligeble syllabic nonsense. I don't worry whether or not I am totally on pitch or even the range that I am singing in - I might be an octave up or down. It is for the development of the intervalic relationships, for the connecting of the voice to the hands, from the mind to the bass, from the soul to the music
