Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) The purpose of this study is to establish a teaching method of singing based on acoustic features of singing voice. In this paper, we focus on Singer's Formant ratio (SFR), peak sharpness of the Singer's formant (Q-factor), Second Convex of LPC spectrum, and Second Convex / First Convex of LPC spectrum as acoustic features of the singing voice. These values by the analysis of the acoustic features of the four experiments have been conducted in this study was performed properly whether viewed as acoustic features for beginners. The results show that, the combination of the Q-factor and SFR it was possible to perform the discussion of each region divided by the specified threshold by using. Additionally, the combination of Second Convex of LPC spectrum and Second Convex / First Convex was able to suggest the possibility that can be a simple indicator than the combination of Q-factor and SFR.
