There is no perfection in the world. Singers are well aware of this, who need to constantly practice before putting out another hit on stage (or in their own room). And to practice, you need a tool, especially if you are a beginner performer.
Something like a piano or tanbura, to whose accompaniment you will sing. But they are not really needed. Especially if there are awesome vocal training apps that can help you learn to sing without any instruments.
Vocalizzo Lite – Vocal Warm-up
There are so many genres in music, but they all have something in common. Warming up vocals is the foundation of your daily singing practice. Not surprisingly, it is the application for warming up and training vocals that is at the first number in our ranking.
Vocalizzo Lite contains a lot of exercises, including three and five-note chants and a major triad. In addition, you can also clear your throat with specific exercises such as lip trills, exercises to relax the muscles of the larynx, and so on. If you are interested in the technique of singing in speech position with simple piano accompaniment, try the Speech Level Singing Exercises app.
The app is free, but for additional lessons you will have to pay a one-time fixed amount of $ 6. The paid package is well worth it if you decide to take vocals seriously and on a regular basis. Unfortunately, the application is available only for Android, but there is also a more or less comparable alternative for iOS – 7 Minute Vocal Warm-Up.
The Vocaberry Vocal training Karaoke is an app where you can learn to sing while performing your favorite songs. Songs are divided into playlists by difficulty, from very easy to very difficult.
However, these are not all the advantages of the application! The big plus is that Vocaberry determines the range of your voice. At the same time, you can immediately choose a repertoire for training, not only in terms of the complexity of the performance but also taking into account your individual vocal range.

Smule combines the fun of singing karaoke with the power of social networking. In practice, this means that you can not sing alone, but, for example, a duet with another user who is at least in the opposite part of the world. You can subscribe to other users, listen to their records, and share yours.
The best part is that you can find almost any song in the app, from “Maroon 5’s Memories” to “Mai Shayar To Nahin”. You have the opportunity to sing solo, duet, chorus. You can start as a duet, and then other users will join you. Or vice versa: others will start and you will connect. If you do not sing well, you can turn on automatic voice adjustment, use reverb, apply additional sound and visual effects.
If you are into music, then you probably already heard of Yousician. And if not, let’s explain in a nutshell. Yousician is a popular music education app with video tutorials. In it you can learn not only to sing, but also to play various instruments, from guitar to ukulele and piano. Start with the basics if you’re a beginner, or jump straight to vocal exercises if you already know how to sing.
Due to the quarantine, the developers have extended the trial period from 7 to 30 days. A subscription with full access, including additional lessons and exercises, will cost 500 rubles per month.
Hindustani classics and carnatic music are gaining popularity throughout the world. The creative heritage of India needs a completely different approach than Western music, so other applications from this rating will help, but only partially. Something will be missing. And Riyaz will help to fill the lack of this something.
The application contains both lessons for beginners and material for more advanced music users, such as, for example, a workshop on alankara, sargam (Hindu analogue of the Western scale), and so on. You will also find more than 20 ragas in different varieties in Riyaz. And although most of the application is devoted to folk music in the form of bhakti-sangeet, there is also a section for the study of religious bhajan chants for various Hindu deities.
Surely most of your day is busy with work or study and daily activities. But this does not mean that there will not be time to practice vocals. And you can spend only a few minutes a day on this. This has been taken care of by the developers of the Vanido application, which suggest doing only three vocal exercises a day.
You also don’t have to guess how well you sing. The app provides real-time visual feedback and helps train your hearing. At the same time Vanido will give you the opportunity to know your voice range. This will help you find the right lessons to avoid damaging your vocal cords while learning to sing.
The free version of Vanido is limited to three exercises per day. If you think this is not enough, you can purchase a paid subscription.
The app is only available for iPhone. The Android version is being developed. On the application site, you can subscribe to the notification. As soon as the Android version is released, you will receive an email.
Like some of the other apps on this list, Singscope also visualizes the pitch of your voice as you sing in graphs. There are in the application and exercises for chanting, and singing with a change in the tempo of performance, and much, much more.
What sets Singscope apart from its peers is the use of notes for vocal training exercises. You can convert your music to MusicXML format , and you can also play the notes shown on the screen on the virtual piano. Programs like Musescore can create sheet music and music files in XML format.
Simply put, this app will be the perfect vocal training assistant for you if you know how to record and read sheet music.
The app is available for iPhone .
Voice Training has everything you need to teach singing for performers of all skill levels, from amateur to professional. Voice Training differs from most analogs in additional functionality, including exercises to expand the vocal range, singing intervals and much more.
The interface seems a little old-fashioned, but you get used to it very quickly and it looks better every day. We liked the interactive piano accompaniment interface the most. The notes in it are shown as on a real piano. On the middle screen of the application, the staff is displayed, which shows the note on which you are currently working.
