Re: Should an old person even use the computer program?

Being able to "name notes" in the pseudo-AP sense of the term is as musical useful as my being able to name the letters of the Greek alphabet. It doesn't do any good unless it can be integrated with fluent language. I wonder what your experience is right now. Also, of course, "been shown to be" is ...

Re: Chris what are you up to?

I am still convinced, theoretically, that learning absolute pitch is possible for adults—but my successes with ETC (APA and APP) have helped me discover the extent of the individual work necessary to achieve it. That is, I believe that the problem is equivalent to that of teaching phonemic awarenes...

Re: Should an old person even use the computer program?

I get that no adult has been shown to learn AP from any method whatsoever. However, I do have trouble understanding what you define as "real" AP. Are you suggesting that if one were to actually learn "real" AP that they wouldn't have to put effort into learning to identify pitche...

Re: Good Relative Pitch can get you through APA

Hey man. Just wanted to concur that the basic skill APA teaches is that of simply being able to maintain a pitch in short term memory without fail in spite of gradually more complex contexts. I've found myself that I can pretty much breeze straight to the last level of any pitch given the time and d...

Re: the trouble with melody triggers

Man, I've written a TON about this and it seems nobody ever really gets it. Good to see people talking about it again. The thing is, in spite of the many different chordal and melodic contexts one hears a target pitch in with APA and APB, one STILL manages to begin hearing the target pitch as either...

Re: Perfect Pitch Mnemonics

What that guy is describing, APA already does for you. It's constant recognition and recall of a pitch via a melody word. Nothing new for the price.

Yeah, it seems there would be a moment where the listener suddenly realized something had shifted. But there is also the phenomenon of the listeners temporarily remaining within the slightly flatter category and then hearing the corrected pitches at the end as sharp. Also, Hi Lorelei! Been a while s...

I've always felt that one should be able to input their own melody word somehow. Personally, I think music that has a strong emotional impact to the individual is remembered more clearly - like when one gets a song stuck in one's head. I've imagined a little app where one can take a recording and cr...

How to advance?

How does one move on to the next level? When I finish the first bunch of eggs on the first level, a separate page comes up that seems to be giving me the option to play on the next level (or any level I want), but when I click on the green check mark, it just restarts me at level 1.

I've actually been meaning to figure out how to record my desktop while I do some eartraining sessions so I can demonstrate that firsthand to those who are curious. It's really simple in my mind but when I go to explain it in words, I'm suddenly aware of the many details involved. Essentially, thoug...

Yeah, Lorelei, I was thinking of the same thing. If the test dropped the pitch either to right between pitches or even a half step gradually, I think the AP'ers would notice but it would be one of those things where you are temporarily fooled until suddenly it kicks in that the pitch has entered a n...

I wish I could help. My dad has owned his own software company since 1987 and was programming years before that. Yet, I don't know a thing about it. He never taught me anything about what he does other than that it deals in structural dynamics - which is all about measuring vibration resonances of v...

Another study I hadn't seen.

Interesting stuff. Apparently 'native' AP can be thrown off quite easily if done in a certain way.
