About Eva Pitch
Your Eva Pitch lesson (as demonstrated in your practice video) trains your ear to hear the A3 pitch and it trains your voice to tune to that pitch. It’s important to understand that we’re not trying to only speak on one pitch, but to hear, feel and think about this anchoring pitch in order to move you into the feminine pitch range when you speak.
As we discussed in Eva Breathe unit, the training tempo incorporated into the Exceptional Voice approach uses a three-count, or beats of three rhythm, for each exercise. It’s critical to your success to be aware of this rhythm and to try to match the tempo shown in the practice video that you’ll use in the animated, feedback exercises.
The self-guided exercises of Eva Pitch, as with Eva Breathe, allow you to practice your pitch-matching skills in sets for three trials for each exercise. You control the start of each exercise by pressing “tap to start.” Before you press start, you have the choice of listening to the A3 pitch. Early in your training, you’ll likely want to choose to do this often. However, the more skillful you become, you may want to skip listening to the pitch and see how you do producing the A3 pitch on your own.
Once you press “start,” you’re ready to begin your exercises, whether for ‘he’, ‘ha’ or ‘hoo,’ separately or all three consecutively. Eva will provide your score after you’ve completed three trials. And if you’d like, you can share your score with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.
The problem is that most transgender women try to feminize their voices by only focusing on the physical aspect of the voice. While this makes good sense and it does work for many people, it doesn’t take many people far enough. So, if you’re still reading this, it’s because you haven’t found your feminine voice!
