The internet is full of so many valuable resources, and nowhere is that more evident than in the myriad of websites designed to help musicians! Here are a number of great resources for choristers of all ages:
#1. Virtual Piano:
It can be difficult for singers who don’t have a piano, or keyboard at home, to practice their music independently. This website has a great virtual piano, to help choristers practice their music at home! There are a variety of free virtual piano apps for iphones, ipad, and other smartphones too, as well as more basic pitch pipe apps!
#2. Ear Training:
A good singer, is also a great listener. A singer’s ears are every bit as important as their voice, and needs to be trained as well. This website has great exercises, that can be modified for beginner singers through to more advanced singers!
While many musical works are still under copyright, there are also several that are now within the public domain. The Petrucci Music Library has compiled a fantastic repository of these public domain scores!
