A: I enjoyed going to karaoke with my friends. We were singing when suddenly some foreigners we didn't know entered our room. They surprised us but 5 minutes later, we were all singing together. I felt like we could become friends with everyone. Maybe it's because they were foreigners.
Q: I like to sing karaoke, but some of the songs I want to sing are so high-pitched that I can't sing well. Luckily, karaoke machines have the function that allows us to adjust the pitch; you can higher the pitch or lower the pitch depending on your singing voice range.

[my question: The following phrases in the passage I composed are natural? high-pitched, adjust the pitch, higher the pitch, lower the pitch, your singing voice range]
A: Natural:
high-pitched
adjust the pitch
lower the pitch
your singing voice range

Only this sounds unnatural:
higher the pitch

ピッチを高くする ➡ "raise the pitch" (not "higher")
Q: I'll go to karaoke if I'm invited.
But I never sing and I'll only listen to your singing. does this sound natural?
A: "I'll go to karaoke if I'm invited, but I don't intend on singing. I'll just listen."

Or

"I'll go to karaoke if I'm invited, but I won't sing. I'll just listen."
Q: I'm going to go to karaoke. does this sound natural?
A: I think this sounds fine, though it's not technically correct.
"go to ____" requires a destination(place), and karaoke is not a place.
"I'm going to go to the zoo".
"I'm going to go to school"
"I'm going to go to New York".

But in casual conversation, I don't think anyone would raise any eyebrows over it.

If you wanted to get picky about it, you could say,
"I'm going to go to a karaoke bar/box".
OR make it into an action (albeit rather forcibly)
"I'm going to go do karaoke".

It's tricky since it's an imported word and we don't necessarily have one word that collocates with it 100%. (i.e. "do karaoke" vs "sing karaoke" vs "practice karaoke")... 日本語だと「カラオケに行く」とか「カラオケをする」とかは問題ないのにね。。
Q: We can't pay separate at karaoke. does this sound natural?
A: separately
