I Have Perfect Pitch

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 47 People

    I've been told this ever

    And I'm really proud of it.

    Perfect Pitch And Perception

    do any of you have synesthesia - perception of other sense modalities at the same time? eg, hear a note, see a colour? Do any of you have autism or aspergers?

    My Perfect Pitch Story

    My story is much like Peter's.  I didn't know there was anything unusual.. but my dad would get mad at me when I kept telling him he was whistling in the wrong key. I remember my dad didn't believe me when I told him his record player was slower than mine.  (My parents...

    I was told by my piano teacher at age five

    (well, he actually told my mother because I had no idea what that meant) that I had perfect pitch. I wouldn't rediscover that until I joined my middle school choir and got into the advanced group in 7th grade. I started to realize then that I had a much better ear than most, and...
