Nifer-son can sing. I hear it. Potential is there. Technology is there too like Crow said. Keep hope alive.
So as I has dug further into this it is a very small proportion of people who are actually truly completely tone deaf...the statistic I read was less than 2% to 5% according to one school that helps people who have pitch problems they can help a lot of people who were told...you can't sing, you're one of the unlucky ones etc. when they were young..pretty sad shit ....so they are saying if you can pass a pitch sensitivity test then there is hope if you put the work into it.Nifer-son can sing. I hear it. Potential is there. Technology is there too like Crow said. Keep hope alive.
At 2.00 in she sings 'put it down', and the note she holds is strong.there is a voice there Nifer
I look at it like a person can learn pitchIt's hard to tell someone bad news, but it is not cool to not tell them if not telling puts them in danger or risk. The OP is tone deaf not a little, a lot. Absolutely if she likes singing go ahead and have fun, but to avoid the risk of being laughed at, cringed at I'd encourage her to do it privately or with friends who are also tone deaf or really good, kind friends. It's not quite at fingers scratching the chalk board annoying but it is pretty far off from in tune / key.
She can practice all she wants and absolutely can improve delivery, breathing and presentation but all the practice in the world will not allow her to sing in tune...that's fucked up but that's the hard truth. It's like telling someone to raise their hand when they don't have arms.
