About us

Jack Petchey’s Perfect Pitch is a free music education project focussed on teaching a cappella music skills to young people!
A Jack Petchey Foundation Programme

We are looking for contemporary youth vocal groups with real enthusiasm, a positive attitude and a willingness to learn!  In return we promise groups a great vocal, musical and performance experience!

36 groups will be selected to undertake training workshops in vocal and musical skills, vocal percussion and performance skills.  The programme culminates in a series of public performances where judges from the music industry will select 12 groups to compete in the Grand Final eventually crowning the Perfect Pitch Champions!

The programme consists of:

  • 1 hour assessment workshop/group visit – a member of our team will come and work with you to see what stage you are at and what skills you have

  • 2.5 hour a cappella workshop – this will consist of vocal warm ups, vocal percussion, performance skills and our professional tutors working with you on two songs of your choice.

  • Regional Final – performing your two chosen songs in front of a paying public and panel of judges.

  • Grand Final - culminating in the crowning the Jack Petchey Perfect Pitch Champions and share in a £1000 prize pot!


Our tutors and coaches make the workshops fun, exciting and interactive - we want to get the best out of the groups and work with them to make that happen.  A cappella is a great way to improve confidence, teamwork and performance skills and all of these are focussed on as part of the project.
