Audiologists? Why can't some people who aren't tone deaf hear it when they sing off-key?
Answers: Singing "on-key" is learned. I learned it because we had a piano in our house as a child. I was also in a choir with a teacher who corrected us if we were "off". You learn to check yourself by listening carefully. Sing along with something you like on the radio and check yourself, pushing your voice a bit higher or lower to get into the groove. Or hit a note on a piano and sing the note. Do this up and down the scale. You will develop a sensitivity to the sound waves being in sync.
And if you are off key, so what? Sing anyway - at the top of your lungs, for joy. It's your right.
The term "tone deaf" is inappropriately used in most cases.
*Note. I am not an audiologist. I am a professionally trained singer.*
Often, people sing off key because they were never taught to listen to themselves. It is - sort of - a problem with hearing. It's actually a problem with the way your ears have been trained. Sound resonates differently inside your head than it does outside and your ear gets "confused" as to what it's listening to.
You can re-train your ears and learn to sing better. Look into voice lessons if you're interested.
don't worry it's not totally a porblem with you first of all recording on tapes screw everything up
you need an ear for hearing, what I mean is you need to work with a piano enough to know the correct notes to distinguish between flat correct and sharp and when singing sing with a piano and match the song pitch by pitch if yo really must evaluate yourself record yourself with the piano together to make sure it isn't just the tape messing everything up
also if you are singing you might just be on a different key thn what you are used to the song being I would suggest taking a piano and doing some voice exercises that include modulating
if it really bothers you take some lessons and have someone work with you alone
I had a friend working on a solo to be judged and I had the same solo I could hear that she was off but she couldn't tell so our music teacher kept working with her
personally I can tell when I'm off but I've worked with instruments and have decent pitch matching abilities
it all takes practice
It's a problem with recording and your ears. You might get intimidated with me but your recording is really what other people hear you as. (minus the static of a mic) When you speak (or sing), the sound waves not only travel through the air, but also through your skull. Oh, and for a test, turn on the TV and go to any channel that has music on then see if it is noise to you.
