comment Is there any evidence that JS Bach, A Vivaldi and J Handel had perfect pitch?
Yes, A = 440 is a late 1800’s American thing, standardized as ISO 16 in 1975.

When people say “perfect pitch” they are talking about absolute pitch, not relative pitch. They are talking about the ability to avoid hitting a note on the piano at the top of a session, as though that matters.

Every second that is wasted on discussions of the completely irrelevant phenomenon of perfect pitch would be better spent practicing your instrument and improving as a musician. Perfect pitch jealousy should be classified as a mental illness.

comment How can we sing in tune, given a perfect ear for music, if we always hear ourselves lower than we actually sound?
Yes. The phenomenon that is referred to in the question is like an EQ with bass frequencies boosted, not Auto-Tune modifying the pitch.

comment How can I teach myself to play the drums and how much is it going to cost me?
I really disagree with this question being closed. There is a perfectly good answer which is to get a cheap electronic drum kit (of any brand) and use tutorial videos to get started, and later if you go to an acoustic drum kit, the electronic kit still serves as practice pads. You cannot make music without some kind of gear. The questioner is not asking “is Ludwig better than Tama?” he is asking how to get started playing the drums, which I think is much more important than aggressive policing of this site. There are not a million and one ways to get started in self-learning the drums.

comment How can I change the time signature to make the score easier to read?
Yes. ONE two ONE two in a pop song is 4/4. The primary thing you can do to make a score easier to read is put it in common time, unless it simply cannot be written in common time.

comment Musicians Unions In The Modern Day
What do you mean by “this privatized age?” If that has a meaning, please explain it with examples. If it is meaningless, please edit it out. “The modern day” is also essentially meaningless without explanation and examples.
