"This may be the best iPad app yet. Worth buying the iPad for all by itself. Range, power, clarity, all improving day by day. A wonderful tool." - Music in Ashcroft
Can I learn how to sing?
If you can talk, you can sing. Singing is a completely natural activity; our voices are designed for both speaking and singing (in ancient human tribes, everyone sang, not just a few “professional” singers). Singing uses basically the same skills as speech, but for singing we use our breath differently, hold sounds longer, and use a wider range of tones.
Don’t I need talent?
You may not be able to become the fastest marathon runner. However, unless you have a physical condition that prevents you from running, you can most definitely train to run marathons successfully, and get very good at it through regular exercise. Similarly, you may not be able to become the next Pavarotti; however, you can be as good as many professional singers who sing for a living, provided you train your voice regularly and with focus. Even if you’re not willing to put in a lot of effort, you can always improve from where you are, and have fun singing.
Why do I need training?
Just as you can’t run a marathon without any training and practice, you can’t sing well without training and practice. Lessons used in Erol Singer’s Studio focus on techniques and sounds that show you how to use your voice effectively, and prevent you from making the most common mistakes in singing, such as breathing poorly and closing your throat (e.g. by letting your larynx rise up). These carefully selected sounds, which have been in use for centuries around the world, ensure that your muscles are coordinated in the most useful ways for singing. By practicing these sounds and building up the muscle memory, it becomes easier to sing other sounds as well and you have more freedom in different parts of your vocal range, such as when you’re singing high notes.
What makes Erol Singer's Studio so special?
With Erol Singer's Studio, we defined a new genre of vocal training software in 2012, and have improved it year after year with your feedback and our own ideas. Compared to recent attempts to imitate it, Erol Singer’s Studio has significantly more accurate pitch detection (including for lip and tongue trills¹ that are staples of voice training, which even non-realtime professional software can't detect), while the competition struggles with their accuracy for even normal, basic singing, which would make you think you’re a bad singer. Further, Erol Singer's Studio has a complete set of lessons organized into progressive levels designed by an award winning singer and vocal coach, not just a few scattered exercises. It is patented at its core, and has a much more refined feature set that has been perfected over the years with your requests. But don't take our word for it. Download and see for yourself.
Most recently, we've added the ability to add your own exercises / song-phrases, so you can perfect the app for your needs. We’ve also made the app free to download, so you can finally see for yourself why Erol Singer’s Studio is years ahead of any attempt to imitate it. We’ve been “helping the world sing... better!”™ since 2012. Download the app for free², and let us help you too.
¹ In dedicated lip and tongue trill exercises.
² Beginner 1 & 2, and select exercises in other levels are included for free, while the complete set of lessons requires an active subscription. If you decide to purchase a subscription, payment will be charged to your Apple ID account when you confirm your purchase. Subscription automatically renews unless canceled at least 24 hours before the end of the current period; your account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period. You can manage and cancel your subscriptions via your account settings on the App Store after purchase.
- Added graceful handling of iOS audio system reset that occasionally occurs on some devices (earlier versions of the app used to quit when this happened)
- Fixed a crash that occurs if the app is closed while an exercise is being personalized to your vocal range

LOVE IT but...
It’s amazing. The best vocal app ever. If you aren’t that serious about singing it could even substitute for a teacher. If you are serious, I recommend using this in combination with a teacher. It has improved my pitch better than anything else. This has been a miracle for my ear. But: wish you could include blues and other types of scales for contemporary music. Additionally, the new update is cool in that it is a lesson plan with unlocking levels but since I am a more experienced singer I’d like to just pick and choose which exercises I’m doing on a given day. I don’t like to have to follow a certain plan if I know what exercises might be most useful on a certain day. The app’s last version made it easier to sift through which exercises I would do because you could see them laid out for each lesson which you can’t do anymore.
Other than that, it’s great. But please bring back the catalog approach and please include different scales (e.g., blues) so I could ensure I’m learning that on pitch as well.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your review and feedback. Regarding additional ear training patterns, you will soon be able to create your own exercises and share them with other users, so you can add the exact patterns you find useful. The edit feature is already implemented; it's just waiting for some final testing and the community share feature.
Regarding the old lesson lists, they're still there. To access them, long-press any training program's icon and slide your finger to the little list icon that appears.
The new version also supports creation of custom training programs, which always jump directly to the lesson list without the need to long-press. Use the + button in the "My Content" section to create custom training programs, and use the ♡ button within the lesson pages to add exercises to them.
I rarely ever leave reviews, but after using this app for a few days I felt it more than deserved a positive one. I've been playing and writing music since I was 10. I have taken piano and vocal lessons and I can honestly say that this app is more helpful than vocal lessons in that it saves $$ and makes it possible to get a visual representation of where you are and where you need to be. My vocal lessons were $25 per half hour and the first 15 mins or so were always dedicated to the breathing exercises alone. I stopped after a few days of lessons because $ was tight. This app costs less than a 30 min session and I have already improved my vocal technique tremendously. Thank you.
Best singing app on the AppStore
There are singing apps out there that offer similar features and I’ve tried many, but in all fairness, none comes close to Erol’s Singer Studio.
First, there is this incredible pitch visualization with instant color feedback, then there is an array of versatile and well-organized training programs; you also get a very useful stats screen to review your performance in current and past practice sessions
Those were only the highlights of the app, there are so many other cool stuff under the hood.. amazing app.
