Tuning Tactics

Every musician deals with the challenge of playing in tune. Tuning Tactics offers information, advice and exercises to help you understand the art and the science of intonation. The included Tuning Tactics CD offers 88 demonstration and play-along tracks which will dramatically improve your ability to hear and control tiny changes in pitch. You’ll develop an intuitive sense of where to place each note, based on its position in the harmonic structure, and you’ll become familiar with the intonation tendencies of every note on your instrument.

Tuning Tactics is suitable and beneficial for all instrumentalists and vocalists, at every level from beginner to pro. It’s never too early–or too late–to improve your sense of pitch!

Tuning Tactics includes:

  • 45 page book / coil bound
  • 88 track CD
  • CenterPitch Tuner


    Tuning Tactics is designed to work effectively in conjunction with the CenterPitch Tuner. Using both aural and visual feedback is a powerful way to train ears. By referring to a chart in Tuning Tactics, it is possible to get beyond the equal temperament bias inherent in all tuners, and hear the sound of pure tuned intervals.
