Learn Perfect Pitch with The Only Whole-Brain Music Method
The term Whole-brain refers to the new connections formed between the left and right hemispheres brain. Building on this effect helps students to 'Turbo-Charge' their musical aptitude and ability, gaining confidence and heightened creativity.
The most natural way to learn music is to learn how to hear the vibration of each note first. This vibration has a distinct color of sound, and its not hard to learn to hear it. We have taught hundreds of students of all ages. Our students learn to identify each note's unique sound, and they learn to play music a lot faster. They pick up instruments quickly. They read music easily.
Whole-brain learning is the key.
“Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy”
Ludwig van Beethoven
WHAT IS ABSOLUTE (PERFECT) PITCH (AP)
Absolute Perfect Pitch is the ability for our brains to hear the color frequency/vibration of each note, and tell them apart easily without an instrument. It's a skill that enhances hearing acuity and changes the way we listen for life. It increases the size of an important structure in our mid-brain.
The skill we are teaching is a key component of musical genius. With Perfect Pitch, we can listen to a note and identify it, without the need for a musical instrument. With Perfect Pitch we can listen to the radio, and tell what notes the musician is playing. We can go to the piano and play the song without needing any written music.
When we have Perfect Pitch, we can listen to an instrument being played, pick it up, and figure out how to play it without much help. It just comes to us easily and naturally, like we are speaking it's language. We are the geniuses of the musical community, the best of the best. SensAPitch (tm) specializes in helping students find and enhance this musical genius and become the great musicians they dreamed they could be when they started lessons..
One may say, "I just want my child to learn to play a little piano with no pressure. Why should I want them to have perfect pitch?" Answer: If your child is musical, they can learn music easily, and learn to play beautiful music quickly, or they could take years to learn even a basic song. Which would be more inspiring to your child? If both students are starting at the same place at the beginning, why not choose the route that has the greatest chance of success? Why not choose the route that builds self confidence quickly, and gives each student a point of emerging competence?
We have such dreams for our children when we have them. We want them to love learning, to be happy, confident, self expressed, and educated. We enroll them in a wide variety of activities hoping that one will catch their attention. It's usually quite random as to which one will be "the one" that sticks. What if the child was set up for success in each subject from the first day?
We would have a child that feels accomplished, educated, and loves learning. Give this child a great connection with a trained teacher, and you have a "talented" musician.
Famous People with AP
Musical prodigies and greats of every musical era had Absolute Pitch. They include: J.S. Bach, Ludwig Beethoven, W.A. Mozart, Fredrik Chopin, J.S. Handel, and many more. More recent examples of AP include: Celine Dion, Elton John, Kelly Clarkson, Martha Agarich, Yo Yo Ma, and others at the top of the music industry. One thing they all have in common: Absolute Perfect Pitch. This allows them the ability to tell their band when they need a key change, and easily transition to the new key. AP allows them to compose beautiful music. It allows them to enjoy music with more variety, in full color. They experience full color sound that gets more and more beautiful throughout their lives as they continue on their musical journeys.
Why Do I Want My Child to Learn It?
A child with AP can move through the process of learning an instrument at twice the speed of one without it. Because they progress faster, they play more satisfying pieces and get more positive attention and gain confidence quickly. Learning additional instruments is easy for them and their peers notice their musical skill. When children with AP play in a band or orchestra, everyone knows who they are. They are first chosen for solos, and looked to for their expertise. When they hear a tune on a video game, TV, or a movie, they can figure it out. These things create self confidence and poise. But the best reason of all for your child to have AP is that they will hear in color for life.
Can Absolute Pitch Be Taught?
I have AP. My father had it before me. I also started lessons before the age of 6. I understand the advantage that AP has given me in music over these years, and I want our students to enjoy that advantage. When they learn this skill, playing multiple instruments is easy. They read music well and progress through the method books quickly. Playing and performing with less stress, they sense where the music is going, and what to play next. They learn to play new instruments naturally. One of my students, Vivian Meyer (14), who has taken lessons from me for 10 years, now has AP. I asked her to tell me what it means to her. She said, “music is so easy for me. I am so thankful you taught me perfect pitch. No one can believe I have it until they see it for themselves.” Vivian plays piano, saxophone, oboe, trombone, and sings. She won the First Place Award for Music Composition in 5th and 6th grade for the State of California. She was the drum major for her junior high school. This is what whole-brain learning does for a child.
What are Signs that My Child Can Learn AP?
There are many families with children who have the genetic propensity for AP, but if the right musical education does not start before age 6, the skill becomes dormant in them. I have designed a list of 7 signs that will help us identify people with the ability to learn AP.
The 7 Signs of Musical Talent are:
Singing, humming, making sound effects continually, from a young age
Listening to the same song over and over
Getting parts of a song "stuck in your head"
Dancing/Moving to Music, tapping fingers on surfaces
Being drawn to an instrument, asking for music lessons
Figuring out tunes by ear, singing on pitch
Having a musical family member: parent, grandparent, uncles, aunts, cousins on one or both sides of the family
Brain Science Helps Us Teach Music Better than Ever Before
MUSIC EDUCATION BASED ON SCIENCE
Our music education processes have been based on methods that encourage left brain thinking, or "sequential processing". This part of the brain does not learn to express the creative arts. This kind of processing is a complete mismatch for the learning of music. It focuses primarily on black notes printed on white paper, and using visual, printed information, as the primary source of the music to be played.
Think about this for a moment.
We are talking about learning music, yet the primary source of information about that music is visual? What about sound? Wouldn't it seem that if we could hear and identify the information accurately and easily, we could imitate it much more easily and accurately than trying to transfer the input from one sense to another?
How many music teachers spend all of their time with a student teaching them to read music instead of listen? Many actually discourage listening as a form of input for a new piece, telling students that playing the piece for them ahead of time is somehow "cheating". It is no wonder children quit lessons and are not inspired to "practice".
Just as science has advanced our understanding of sound, and the unique color vibration of each notes, our basic understand of how the human brain learns has also evolved. With these advancements, we also need to re-evaluate how we teach music.
Traditional music education is still based on fundamental ignorance of the most important points of learning music. Music is sound vibration. Every instrument creates it's own unique tone, but the fundamental vibratory color of every note on the scale is the same. Taking multiple notes and throwing them together in a song before one has learned the timbre of each one, individually, predisposes every new musician to never developing perfect pitch. If one is never exposed to the note, by itself, how can one learn it's unique sound qualities?
If, instead, one begins lessons with listening to each note first, it is so much easier to remember them when they are combined. It is so much easier to determine when one is out of sequence.
The best part is: most people are born with the propensity for perfect pitch. Although it is true that it is easiest to learn the colors at age 2, when the language parts of the brain are being developed, we have taught perfect pitch to many adults, some as old as 79. Whole-brain learning is the key.
Not only have we taught perfect pitch to hundreds of our students, but we have used our perfect pitch color system to work with students with significant disabilities, including: autism, traumatic brain injuries, visual and auditory impairments, ADD/HD, Turrets, etc. Our method enhances short and long term memory as it lights up the entire brain with activity.
It takes about ten (10) years, on average, to learn to hear all of the notes in all octaves of the piano, but 94.7% of our students have perfect pitch on at least 3 notes within 3 months of beginning their study with us. All students experience a dramatic improvement in their pitch perception, time in learning to play a piece, and their ability to learn to play new instruments.
We believe that by the year 2030 every person who studies music in the world will have the opportunity to begin their music lessons with our method, and that their music education experience will be one of the most satisfying and amazing experiences of their lives.
We invite you to develop perfect pitch with SensAPitch.

START LEARNING PERFECT PITCH TODAY
SensAPitch has been involved in clinical trials for the last six years, and after results far surpassing our expectations, we are bringing it to market in January, 2019. It has been a long journey of trial and error, and we have tested our method with 32 music teachers and over 300 students of all ages. We have had piano, voice, guitar, drum, cello, and violin teachers in our trial process. We have had children as young as 2, and as old as 79. We have taught SensAPitch in person, as a 5 min part of a regular private music lesson, or via skype where the student was many states distant from our schools. Across the board, SensAPitch works.
Students who have continued with us have developed complete, independently verified, absolute perfect pitch on all of the notes of the scale, in all octaves. We are currently in a major scientific study with The Feinstein Medical Research Institute in New York, and Dr. Peter Gregerson, renowned geneticist. His absolute pitch study sets the scientific standard for such research in the world. He has taken great interest in SensAPitch.
What we believe will be proven by this study is that:
1) There is a genetic component to perfect pitch, and that this propensity is far more common than we have ever believed
2) There is an environmental trigger for developing perfect pitch. The greatest of these triggers is the age of the student when they start music lessons.
3) That the type of music lessons they take are effective for right brain "associative processor" development.
SensAPitch will be available at the beginning of 2019.
