The Tuning CD

As audition season rolls around again, an excellent tool for developing and working with crazy pitch (students, amateur, and pros alike) is Rich Schwartz’s The Tuning CD. I use it for scales, intervals, and especially orchestral excerpts.

Rich is a friend of my boyfriend and I am very thankful that his research produced this tool. It really keeps my pitch centered and grounded, especially if I don’t have a tuned piano available.
