Want to back up your singing on guitar or keys?
Great! Some things to consider:
First of all, if you don’t know much theory, you should check out my online course Music Theory for Singers: The Chord Book.
Then you should check out the accompaniment and song creation tools below.
This is my go-to website for sheet music for the following reasons:
- They have a huge array popular songs and genres
- They have piano scores, leadsheets, and instrumental scores
- Many of the piano scores can be transposed into a key that fits your singing range
- They have beginner piano scores (that keep my students interested!)
- Scores can be downloaded and used right away
- You can search songs by genre, decade, or by an associated holiday (Christmas music!)
- They stay current with recent hits
Band in a Box
I use Band in a Box with students who are working on songwriting. Together, we can take as little as words on a piece of paper and a vague melody in their heads, and turn it into band-backed song.
You choose the backing style, plug in your chord progressions, and customize adjustments as you wish.
The end result is a backing track that you can use to
- Perform solo to
- Share your songs on a YouTube channel
- Give to musicians to learn your song for studio recording or live performance.
There is a base version and a MegaPak version. Check them out by clicking on the images below.
