Q: I just started working with your One Note Complete ear training CD, and it's really helping me. But as a classical pianist, I'm wondering if I should develop perfect pitch instead of relative pitch. Does it matter? Should I work on both kinds of pitch?
A: Hard question to answer. I would do both. By having great relative pitch your understanding and, therefore, your execution of classical music will be greatly expanded. For Perfect Pitch check out our books. These Perfect Pitch books present very intriguing ways to memorize the sound of a each note through listening and singing exercises. Each book concentrates on one instrument at a time.
One further clarification is that the sound that you are listening for with relative pitch is completely different from what you are listening for with perfect pitch.
