Absolute Pitch in Trained Singers

Who is eligible to participate in this research?

We are seeking both singers and singing teachers to take part in the 1st phase of this research. The eligibility criteria is listed below.

Singers of any genre are invited to participate. To be eligible, you need to be either
• a professional singer, or
• someone who has studied singing at a tertiary level, or
• currently studying singing at a tertiary level

You also need to possess full, active absolute pitch. This means that you can automatically and effortlessly:
identify (name or write in musical notation) any musical pitch you hear without needing to hear a reference pitch; and
sing any specified note without needing to hear a reference pitch.

If you previously had this ability or your sense of pitch has shifted, we are also interested in hearing from you.

If you are not sure whether you possess AP, you are welcome to contact us to discuss.

Singing Teachers
To be eligible to participate, you need to be
• a professional singing teacher, and
• have experience teaching at least 1 singer who has absolute pitch (see description above).
