It honestly sucks pretty hardcore. I want to be a music teacher or a band director, but I honestly cannot sing to save my life. I can tell the notes are wrong, but I can't fix them if I tried. I have trouble harmonizing with a f*cking piano. I can play woodwind instruments fine, but with brass having to pick out a pitch, I'm screwed. I can't even join my chorus because I suck too much, and they NEED guys voices. I'm only a freshman now, but still, there's nothing else I really want to do, so I'm pretty much stuck to performance with a woodwind instrument, which isn't that fun.

Keep practicing, there are plenty of ear training courses online, many of which are free. Unless you are actually tone deaf, you will see improvements over time, but don't expect anything to change instantly.

Same deal here man. After playing guitar for a few years it's gotten a bit better, but I still can't sing to save my life.

in the beggining, my singing voice sounded like a dog humping a middle-aged dominican man's leg. but then i just started singing along with everything and it's gotten way better in just a few months. all you have to do is practice. practice any way you can. ear trainiig courses, just singing along, playing instruments. just practice.
Like punk the way it used to be? Deranged Youth Its like what Warped Tour should be!

Want to hear something mind-blowing? Pit O' Bodies Its like an amateur hypnotist plus the Spanish Inquisition!

Don't worry about it TS you just need to practice more. When I started singing I sounded like complete shit, but now I sound better. You just need to set aside some time to practice everyday so you can improve your singing. Trust me with time you'll get better.

Dude it doesn't matter. I'm tone deaf and a pretty good bassist i hear, it just means you have to work harder at theory and such.

It does matter if you want to be a high school music teacher or band director

I don't think so man you have to know how to play all the band instruments! (he said he couldn't play brass because he is tone-deaf)

This is just a matter of control and practice.

Get an recorder and practice matching pitches on a piano or smth, with your voice. Playback and evaluate how well you do. Keep working at it. You'll get there.

I'm pretty sure this isn't your exact problem, but I used to be like you are for the most part, but then i took two years of music theory classes at my school.

The teacher was phenomenal, one of the most annoying, but helpful parts of the class was when he did aural training. He would sit down, tell us the key, play a four part choir piece on the piano, and have us transcribe it.

It was terrible and such, but it really did help my ear and singing to an extent since he had us sing the parts back to him.

To be tone deaf you have to be incapable of telling different pitches apart.

My singing ****ing sucks, and I'm one skilled guy when it comes to notes stuff. I do sing notes in my head though. By practicing theory and trying to create melodies, one ends up knowing what notes might match with a certain melody or harmony. That's what scales are for somewhat, it's just a group of notes that goes well together. This being said, if you practice let's say the minor scale a lot, it'll be very easy for you to guess which notes fits well in a certain moment of a song with a minor scale, and if you practice further like me (what I mean by further is that when you start to try to match and to know how notes that aren't in a said scale will sound in that said scale), you get to be even better at this.

Practice theory, and your singing of course, it can't hurt you but only help a lot. Read post to know why.

As serious as a thread this is, I couldn't help but laugh at some of these jokes XD

Thanks for the input, I'm trying a few ear training courses as we speak.
