INTONATION FOR SINGERS & PIANISTS
The intonation for telling a story deals with the rise and fall of the speaking voice. When you get to a part in the story that is scary you may raise you pitch higher and get louder. If you came to a part in the story and you were sneaking through a dark forest you would speak softer and lower your pitch. It’s the same with singing. The accuracy of your pitch (hitting the note or notes) is also part of it. So the rise and fall of your voice as you singing the correct notes. Listen to the video of Delilah Portilla singing "Valerie" with the rise and fall of her notes as she sings them on pitch.
Intonation for a piano refers to the relative tuning of the strings. Everyone know when you have a piano delivered to your home, you need to have it tuned. So playing the note middle C with a tuned piano verses playing middle C with an unturned piano will vary in pitch. So make sure you have a tuned piano! Keyboards don’t have to worry about it.
