Two methods are currently used to determine vocal performance intonation: human listeners and computer tools. Theoretically, evaluation relies on musical criteria and the more that performers sing in accordance to these criteria, the more accurate they are judged to be. In practice, evaluating music performances has to take into account several elements such as the type of performance, the musician, and the judge performing the evaluation. By discussing the advantages and limits of the two current methods in the general framework of evaluation of intonation, this chapter aims to provide practical information to make informed decisions when evaluating singing performances.
