Though not a stand-alone singing course per se, Ryan Cameron’s Pure Pitch Method has the potential to be a helpful tool for singers. The basic idea behind this course is that anyone can develop their sense of musical pitch and obtain the coveted sense of ‘perfect pitch’. In times past it was believed that only certain people were born with this ability. In my personal experience, I’ve seen people that appear to have been born with perfect pitch, though that’s not to say that it can be learned as well.
Wondering how having perfect pitch can really benefit you as a singer? There are actually quite a few practical applications. Once you have developed perfect pitch you’ll be able to name any note or chord by ear, tell if a note is sharp or flat, know the key signature of music by ear, and even play your favorite songs by ear. It can also help you when coming up with your own compositions.
Now this is a skill you’ll definitely have to work at. Ryan lays out a lesson-plan that slowly builds upon itself. By the time you are finished with the Pure Pitch Method, you should be able to recognize and name notes, chords, and intervals. Some more basic music theory is presented in this course but you don’t really need any prior background or musical knowledge (though it would probably help). You’ll discover how to relate notes to each other (relative pitch) as well as immediately identify notes upon hearing them played (absolute pitch).
The skills taught in Ryan Cameron’s Pure Pitch Method are great tools for a singer to possess. To be honest though, we think the price is a little steep for what it’s worth.
Within minutes of ordering the Pure Pitch Method, you’ll gain access to the member’s area where you can download the course. The total size of all the downloads is a whoppin’ 540MB. Those on really slow internet connections may not find it worth the time it takes to download. The course is primarily audio files, which are very high quality but which I believe could have been easily compressed to make for smaller file sizes.

The skills taught in Ryan Cameron’s Pure Pitch Method are great tools for a singer to possess. To be honest though, we think the price is a little steep for what it’s worth. For under a hundred bucks you can get your hands on a complete singing course such as Singorama, which has a much better value. However, since there aren’t that many courses out there that train singers in this particular area, you may find that Pure Pitch Method is a good choice for you.Official Pure Pitch Method Website
