I Have Perfect Pitch

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 51 People

    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...

    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...

    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?
