Known over centuries as the prized "super ear" of the world's greatest musicians, Perfect Pitch gives you an unmatchable mastery of the musical language.
In classical times, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin and most all the music greats had Perfect Pitch.
From classical to rock, from jazz to pop, many current and recent superstars also possess (or did possess) Perfect Pitch:
Frank Sinatra, Leonard Bernstein, Barbra Streisand, Julie Andrews, Andre Previn, Stevie Wonder, Nat King Cole, Ray Charles, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Glenn Gould, Yngwie Malmsteen, Eric Johnson, Tommy Mars, Bela Bartok, Jascha Heifetz, Paul Shaffer, Yo-Yo Ma, Yanni . . . the list goes on and on.
Climbing the Ladder of Musical Success
Although many highly paid artists do not have Perfect Pitch, it is interesting to note that the further you climb up the music ladder, the more commonplace the ability becomes.
At the Julliard School of Music you'll find about 10% of the students with Perfect Pitch.
A typical symphony orchestra will boast 20-40% of its membership with Perfect Pitch.
And surveys indicate that half of today's most popular recording artists have Perfect Pitch, rising to 87% for top concert performers.
The Golden Rule of Music:
Professionals rate a good sense of pitch as the most valuable asset of musicianship higher even than other factors like good rhythm, technical facility, accurate memory, and creativity.
Even with years of music lessons and the finest instrument, the Golden Rule of Music holds true:
Your success and enjoyment depend most on your ability to HEAR.
Yet all through the centuries, few have ever cracked the secret for gaining Perfect Pitch . . .
. . . that is, until 14-year old David Lucas Burge made it his personal quest to find the answer at Springer Junior High School . . .
