Perfect Pitch And Odd Theories About It-jessica rabbit

Arts-and-Entertainment This is a brief paper on some of the crazy ideas surrounding the phenomenon of perfect pitch and the opinion of this author on these. There is much that is not known about the ability and some of the disputed ideas on the subject are quite reasonable from either side of the argument. For example, can the ability really be learned? Why is there such little material available to study on those who have acquired the skill later in life? If it is possible to learn it, how should one go about such an endeavor? On the other hand some ideas show an amazing lack of sense or reason. This essay is about the later. One .mon idea is that there is nothing special about perfect pitch because it is simply an enhanced form of relative pitch. This is not true. Someone who has relative pitch skills needs a reference note before being able to tell which note they are hearing, even when their skills are developed to the maximum level. The importance of skill in relative pitch cannot be underestimated. This does not, however, develop perfect pitch. The skills are totally different. Secondly, it is astounding the number of people who seem to believe that everyone in Asia has perfect pitch. The tonal nature of some Asian languages being given as a reason for this. There are some who are mistaken into thinking that words in these languages have different meanings depending on the pitch. However, tonal languages do not use absolute pitch. Words in many Asian languages including Chinese, Cantonese, Vietnamese, and Thai, have different meanings depending on their tonal inflection. In other words, the way the tone rises or falls. It may rise then fall in Cantonese, or fall then rise. Perfect pitch has nothing to do with the meaning of a word. Some studies have researched the alleged perfect pitch abilities of everyday Asian people and .e up with the results, which one would expect by .mon sense. The pitch, which words are spoken at is sometimes the same on consecutive days and other times it is not. Perfect pitch is not present, no matter how the statistics of a survey like this may be presented to try to show something significant. Another theory is that perfect pitch is all about recognizing and memorizing familiar sounds. The bell on the microwave, for example. This means that whenever he heats up some tomato soup, he can recall pitches from this reference tone until such time as his doorbell rings, which he also knows the note for. This next sound keeps him in tune until the phone rings, and so on. As well as being an insane amount of work, this is simply not perfect pitch. This is short term tonal memory and every musician has it. Someone who has perfect pitch, knows a tone he hears randomly just after waking up and could be locked in a room for days with no sound and still be able to identify a pitch. Tonal memory in the short term is not reliable in the long term, which relates to the next idea. The notion that perfect pitch awareness is changed by sickness. Obviously, if an illness leads to madness or deafness, perfect pitch may be affected. However, having the flu is not sufficient to excuse a person making a mistake in identifying a clear pitch, assuming they have claimed to have perfect pitch. Mozart spent a great deal of his life with illnesses. It is important to be wide awake and in good health to be able to concentrate in learning perfect pitch, but this is another issue. The existence of a perfect pitch gene is the final idea to be discussed. It may not seem like a mad theory but there really is little evidence to even suggest that perfect pitch is purely ge.ic. There is not a strong evidence of the skill being hereditary. More often, a non-perfect pitch musician finds that hi child has it. The obvious conclusion is that the musical environment, in which the child grew up, was the important factor. Ge.ics certainly plays a part in who we are in every aspect. However, there are other, bigger influences in some cases. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
