How My Children (N=2) Acquired Absolute Pitch

The author’s sons both possess absolute pitch (AP), meaning they can produce and identify musical pitches without any reference notes. The author, who is bad at music herself, set about trying to develop her sons’ musical abilities using methods such as consistent exposure to labeled pitches with a labeled keyboard, solfeggio practice, and the use of Little Musician apps. The author successfully developed her older son’s perfect pitch, while her younger son is still in the process of acquiring it. The author believes that parents can present their children with the gift of musical aptitude through daily exposure when the kids are young.
