Can we learn Perfect Pitch?

We have all heard of Perfect Pitch.

It is something that many singers and musicians strive for and although it is not a necessary skill to be a  musician, it does seem to be a gift that is coveted by many.

But is it something we could learn?
Or is it something you are either born with or you are not?

Some experts state that Perfect pitch, which is also called absolute pitch,  can be learned.

Here is a definition of....
Perfect Pitch is the ability, without the help of any reference tones or instruments, to recognise or produce an exact note of the musical scale.

This sounds impossible.

However, I think that we can all do better at hitting certain pitches, with a little effort.

With the above definition in mind, what about Relative Pitch?

We'll look at that in the next Reply.
