Pitch has several different meanings. However the meaning of the term 'on pitch' is usually associated with music. More specifically it is closely linked with singing and playing an instrument. When a person sings or plays an instrument on pitch it simply means that the person is playing or singing in the correct frequency rather than in a higher or lower frequency.

In music pitch means the perception of the frequency of a particular note. Pitch is often considered to be one of the most fundamental aspects in the world of music.

Alternatively if a person is singing or playing off pitch it means they are singing or playing false. This is not very easily rectified.

In order to sing on pitch a person can try the following easy steps. Play the notes in order in a particular musical scale. Do this without singing and listen very carefully. Then try to visualise yourself singing this same note. Practise this several times and then try singing. Experts generally find that people who sing off pitch usually never listen to the notes.
