  1. My chromatic tuner that I to use for my guitars is a great tool for developing a good ear and to create perfict pitch and its never wrong. You can pick harmonies and its great for reading music while your singing. You know every note by ear and where it is on the staff. Hitting perfect pitch is very deceptive your inner ear is not always as good as you think it is. Musicans love a vocalist with a good ear and excellent pitch control. Knowing your notes and where they are on the staff before the band plays a chord will create great confidence. I think these skills in addition with the others that we work at are essential, to be a vocalist that people will want to hear.
