Just in case you were wondering, when someone says you’re “pitchy,” the simplest definition is that you aren’t quite hitting your notes. Usually, “pitchy” means you’re running a little sharp on some notes and a little flat on others – because if you were consistently sharp, or consistently flat, a good vocal judge would say you were sharp or flat instead of “pitchy.”
I know I just gave Idol judges possibly a little more credit than they deserve (“good vocal judge”), but whatever. They didn’t make up “pitchy” – I’ve heard it in singing for years.
Also, for what it’s worth, Pickler, if you support your upper register with lots of air, it’s far less likely to be pitchy. Note that good air support and shouty are not the same thing.
That is all.
