"The ability to identify any pitch heard or produce any pitch referred to by name."
thats the dictionary's definition of perfect pitch. now are you saying that someone can't do that, if they weren't given the right genes? I doubt that. Maybe you're just not talking to the right people.. lol.
"I know several people who have perfect pitch. All of them tell me it cannot bo taught. You can be taught varying degrees of relative pitch. "
why cant someone learn to... identify any pitch heard or produce any pitch referred to by name. ??
you're saying they can only come so close, but can never do as well as someone who was "born" with it?
i don't think there is a "perfect pitch gene" anyways.. but hey i might be wrong, but if you think so.. i want evidence
i found that site.. I don't know.. i still believe that someone can practice enough to get an ear to...identify any pitch heard or produce any pitch referred to by name

Maybe you don't have the musical experiances I have had. Maybe you have never met a lot of people with perfect pitch. There are lots of maybes. Maybe you're fulla crap. Who knows. I resent the implication that your experiances are more inportant than mine. I've been at this for over 40 years. I've been teaching for over 20 years. I have known at a guess 15-20 people with perfect pitch. How many do you know?

My sister has been playing alto saxophone for over 8 years and I can sing a note to her and she'll tell me exactly what it is. So unless the gene just POOF, shows up when you least expect it then I think perfect pitch can be learned. After playing a g or an f or an a for so long I think you would be able to recognize it when heard.

Quite possibly your sister does have perfect pitch and just did not know it. i know a set of twins that did not know they had perfect pitch until they went to college. Also some people who have played a long time develop a sense of certain notes and can relate other notes to that one. Usually it is Bb or F. These are tuning notes for most wind bands. They don't have to be these notes. i still stand by my statement. Perfect pitch is genetic, not learned. Relative pitch can be extremely good.

i agree with mainube. I know three people who have perfect pitch, and they're all in the same family.
I have been singing since i was born, (not well in the earlier years I might add) and have grown up around musik, and I don't yet have anything like that.
If someone plays me a middle c, or any note, then yes I can sing them any note from that, but thats relative pitch, not perfect pitch. It is completely different!

Thanks MP. I have a friend who works in a town near me. He and his 2 sisters alll have perfect pitch.
Oddly enough neither his parents (who are accomplished musiccians) have perfect pitch, nor do none of thier children, although one his sisters has a boy who is only 6months old. There is still hope.
