Perfect Pitch

I’ve just listened to the first podcast of Perfect Pitch and want to recommend it to anyone and everyone. What a marvel! I first met Nick as a blogger who wrote Manuscript Notes on WordPress. The podcast is a sparkling version of the same magic. The link is here.

Nick talks about music in words everyone can understand, and he picks marvelous pieces to illustrate his points. In the first podcast he tells how he started listening to classical music and how he pronounced Chopin’s name. Included are selections of Bach, Schubert, Chopin, and Beethoven.

If I were a Victorian lady, I’d swoon over his lovely English accent. His words and the music he chose are superb. Please do listen and prepare to be entranced.

      1. Dear Anne,

        I’m afraid I don’t have your email address, so I hope this reaches you somehow.

        I hope, also, that you are in good health.

        I’ve done a little research and discovered that 50% of the world podcast audience is in the United States! The UK only has 6%, but somehow my podcast is in the top 3% of all podcasts globally!

        I have a very small audience on your side of the pond: do you by any chance have any insights as to how I might broaden its coverage over there? It’s not a commercial exercise, as you know, very much a mission, and I’ve been a little astonished at how many people want to listen!

        Any advice you can give me would be much appreciated. Many thanks and best wishes, Nick.

        1. How I wish I had excellent advice on increasing your listener-ship! When you started the podcasts, I sent your information to the musicians I knew. They didn’t respond to me directly, so I presume they dropped the ball. Let me think about it. We have had lots of things going on here — health issues for both husband John and myself. There are no life-threatening things on the horizon, but medical appointments have been endless.

  1. I like to listen to an English accent and I’m sure you enjoyed the piano notes immensely. We have a commercial for a fine jewelry store here and there is always an Englishman who pops into the conversation. I like listening to his spoken word.

  2. I’m soooo behind on podcasts I’m about to give up on them. But I did subscribe to his blog. Thanks for the recommendation.
