Can you identify individual notes?
Just curious. If you are listening to a piece of music, are you able to think to yourself, for example, "This is an F?"
I started taking piano at a very young age, and my college voice teacher last year said that I have perfect pitch and that not everyone has it. (She also teaches people who haven’t done much singing before). I was going to mention it on the musical abilities thread, but then I was thinking… if you grew up around music from a very young age, do you have a better chance of being able to identify notes? Especially considering that there are a lot of people who play by ear rather than with sheet music.
The reality is, I can identify some notes off the top of my head when listening to music, but mostly the ones that would be considered "white notes" on the piano: I have to think more and/or play it myself to identify "black keys."
Just curious as to others’ thoughts on this? Hope I’m making sense!
