Want to test your pitch discrimination and musical memory abilities? Of course you do. Check it:
While working at the music and neuroimaging lab at Beth Israel/Harvard Medical School in Boston, I developed a quick online way to screen for the tonedeafness. It actually turned out to be a pretty good test to check for overall pitch perception ability. The test is purposefully made very hard, so excellent musicians rarely score above 80% correct. Give it a try!Oh, I mean - give it a try!
I've posted my results below. Man, I think I could've done better at this test if I didn't take it at work with two phone calls interrupting... Not trying to make excuses, I still did just fine. But my score could've been higher! Let that be a warning to you - be sure to take the test when you can really pay attention.
