comment How do I practice (vocal) pitch without an instructor?
There are lots of computer software and mobile apps that can give you real-time feedback on your pitch accuracy. You could try practicing singing while using one of those.

comment Vocal tuning (metering, not autotuning)
Shameless plug follows: Sing-inTuna, an iPhone app I wrote to help me practice singing. Shows several different tuning markers that respond in under 100 milliseconds with an accuracy of a maybe few cents. It's in the iOS App Store.

comment Color coded spectrum analyzer
I wrote an iPhone app that does something like that. For clean monophonic audio input, it draws a line where a note should appear on a grand staff, and colors that line green for in-tune, red for sharp, and blue for flat. You end up with a line graph of the note pitches, colored for pitch. It's called Sing-inTuna, in Apple's App Store.
