    Does anyone have any experience with the TuneUp system for training intonation? I have been looking at this but I wanted to see if anybody had some real world experience with it.

    Steve,

    There was a topic on TuneUp several years ago and I wrote about my impressions in this post. I think it’s a very good product! Singing the exercises is just as beneficial as playing them on your instrument.

    I hope this helps.

    Derek,

    Thank you so much for your review. It was the information I was looking for.

    Anyone have experience using TuneUp in the band classroom?

    Skuni,

    We have used the TuneUp system here at the university for all four concert bands and have found it to be very useful. I have also used it with an adult community band and seen great results.

    We usually just use the basic exercises with the I-V-I and scales, but have seen the bands awareness of pitch and centering make significant improvements.

    I am a believer!

    Hi:

    I already have and use the "Tuning CD". Should I abandon this in favor of "Tune-up"? Anyone have first hand experience with both?
    thanks
