This paper discusses a newly designed educational tool called “Match Your Own Voice!,” which aims at complementing modern vocal pedagogy. The software addresses the perceptual challenges faced by aspiring singers and the need for more objective unsupervised practice methods and quantified reference points to guide students through their training course. The tool is a real-time visual feedback application that uses lessons with a professional vocal coach as a reference for the students’ unassisted practice guidance. It is designed for use on portable computers. The conducted longitudinal study evaluating the tool’s effect on the students’ practice accuracy showed promising results.
