How Do I know What Key a Person is Singing In?

How can I recognize the note on which someone is singing if he/she has started singing before I get to the piano? I mean to get the key without start searching for it-that I will just hit a note at once and it will correspond to the actual key on which the person is singing.


ANSWER

Hi, Seyi--

Learning to recognize pitches is a big challenge and an important skill. This skill improves greatly over time with a lot of experience, but there are programs that can speed up the learning curve and train the ear to recognize pitches.

The best one I have found is called "Pitch Perfect".

Check it out--it may be just what you are looking for!

Best Wishes,
Lynne
