How much out of tune is acceptable?
The studies found total ranges of 20–25 cents, with tones being labeled as acceptably well-tuned when they were between +10 and –15 from perfect tuning.
How do singers stay in pitch?

What is a cent in tuning?
The cent is a logarithmic unit of measure used for musical intervals. Typically, cents are used to express small intervals, or to compare the sizes of comparable intervals in different tuning systems, and in fact the interval of one cent is too small to be perceived between successive notes.
How many Hz is a cent?
The cent was introduced as a unit that allows us to calculate and consider what we heard using a logarithm scale. When we calculate using this logarithmic scale, we find that at the range of the note right in the middle of the B♭ clarinet (B, a’ standing for the actual sound), 1 Hz is equal to roughly 4 cents.
Why do singers sing off key?

What is considered out of tune?
If a key deviates from the demand of a particular frequency cycle in the pitch of A440 it is then considered out of tune to that particular scale frequency. One can have whatever pitch frequency level one chooses to have (within reason) 440, 441,442,443, 452,415,439, etc. etc.
Does intonation have to be perfect?
