I am a musician. I have studied voice (opera, musical theater, jazz, etc.) music theory and composition passionately. I am an avid guitar player. Outside of music i have strong interests in literature and writing.

comment How can I improve my note accuracy and intonation?
I think that the most common pitch issue with that would be going flat. In that case, I would focus on the whole steps in any melody that is giving you trouble. Make sure that you're going to entire whole step. Shorting whole steps adds up after a while. However, if you're going sharp the problem is most likely with the half step.
