Note Perfect has operated since 2001 and is a leader in providing training resources for choral music.
Our aim is to provide a means of learning the notes to choral music in a manner that is easy to grasp, enjoyable to learn, and to help you to sing your part confidently.
At rehearsal, much time can be consumed by learning the notes, however, by continual listening to the notes, learning them in advance and identifying them with the score, you can prepare yourself or your choir to sing competently from the start; choir training time can be better utilised by working on dynamics and presentation.
Our music tracks faithfully replicate that of the scored instruments with the aim that the sound will be similar to that which you will hear when you perform.* With this maxim a great deal of passion, patience and love is given to crafting our recordings. All our work can be used by individuals and by choirs.
For choirs, the orchestral
part or accompaniment is played and the vocal part is highlighted on piano.
The other parts can be heard on other instruments as required. Music Directors tend to prefer piano rather than voice because its sound is more
For soloists, their part is highlighted on wind instruments.
For both choral and soloist music, we also provide an accompaniment version with little or no help,
as well as with the choral vocal parts all played together on piano, so
that you can become even more confident for singing your part.
We suggest listening to a track or tracks, with the highlighted part several times without any attempt to sing with them; then try singing with the track without the words. Get the notes right first - then once you have the notes right, add the words. As you become more confident sing with the accompaniment version that has no highlighted part. (Where possible we put the "help" and "no help" versions on one CD. Where this cannot be done we give the purchaser the option to purchase separately or in our double CD packs The Choruses of Handel's Messiah are an example of this). NB. There is a distinction between downloads, and CD's.

* Our instruments use the digital reproduction sound of real instruments. Some of our recordings (pre 2007) were made before we used this technology and because of this, our downloads are priced accordingly. Not every nuance of live real instruments can be replicated digitally, hence a real performance is always far superior. Digitally, we endeavour to create the essence of the work, to make learning a pleasurable experience, notwithstanding a music director's right of interpretation, or reinterpretation. For unaccompanied ( a capella) we allocate suitable instruments.
