<><> I was interested in the following report of some recent research on
perfect pitch:

http://www.news.wisc.edu/releases/view.html?id=5819

Most interesting indeed. Since I was expelled from first grade chorus
as "impossibly tone deaf" and I was never allowed to return, yet I'm not
truly tone deaf, I wonder if my problem was/is related in some way to
not losing perfect pitch soon enough, or perhaps in an orderly fashion?

It's interesting that this article cannot avoid bringing language into
the discussion in order to explain the why and wherefore of learning
music.

Cheers,
Bill

If I had Stadler's mouthpiece, would I play better? Or do I need his
ligature also? Or perhaps he and I are different persons? If I had
Mozart's pen, would I compose better?
