Pitch Perfect

Have you ever heard your friend mention “perfect pitch” and had even the slightest clue as to what it actually means? Well, take a step aside, and let me explain to you what “perfect pitch” is.gisele_mackenzie  My name is Jonathan Block, and I am currently a sixth grader who goes to GFS. The reason I can explain this concept to you is because I was born with this musical talent.  Perfect pitch is a musical gift that you are born with. If you don’t have perfect pitch, you can practice and practice and get really really close to having perfect pitch, but you will not get it.  Ok, ok, I’ll get to the main topic! Perfect pitch is a variety of things. First, it enables you to recognize the name of a note without having to look at a note name sheet. Secondly, you can tell what key a song is in just by hearing the first ten seconds or so. And there are so many other things you can do with perfect pitch but, these first two are probably the two most important things and the two main things I use with my perfect pitch. Fine, I’ll tell you one more thing. You also can sing a note perfectly on tune, sharp or flat. Or, you can tell if somebody is sharp or flat while they are singing. Gisele MacKenzie was a professional singer with perfect pitch. She had a clear and resonant singing voice.  She was born on January 10, 1927, and died September 5, 2003.  To learn more about perfect pitch, you can visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Absolute_pitch
