  • I have perfect pitch, but sometimes I think it's better to have imperfect pitch because such musicians have less difficulties with transposition, both wrtiting and interpreting. Excellent topic!

  • Regarding what I wrote earlier, can you recommend how to keep the perfect pitch flexible in order to transpose? 🤗

    Excellent point at the end of the livestream about relating intervals in certain songs for recognition to their actual scale degrees in the songs!
