Tone Deaf Test
See how high you can score on these tests.
"Perfect pitch", along with various other forms of frequency evaluation have come and gone on this forum for many years. Do your homework.
This is just a fun test to take David to see how high you score. Maybe fun for some maybe not.
I have a fairly new phone but am unable to take the test so I am disappointed.
Since it uses flash to work I guess some phones might be finicky.
Did it twice, the test is immediately followed by a questionnaire asking for your score, but never gave me a score...
Did you push the arrow buttons? It gives you a score then. Push the continue arrows. I know. I did it wrong the first time too.
My experience was the same as Roger's.
I scored in normal range. I'm not sure how this test measures something called "tone deafness." Is there an official definition of "tone deafness" anyway?
I feel the same as Scott. The test focuses more on the ability to remember a sequence of tone than differentiating between one tone and another.
Yes, I had a couple of problems with memory. And that's one of the things that would throw doubt on the credibility of the test - more than one variable is being tested, and that's never good science.
Woohoo! 96.1%! Does that mean I can enter Julliard? Will I be able to become a top soloist like James Ehnes? Can I also get a unicorn with that? ...oh, wait, it's virgins unicorns care about, ...or was it dragons... Either way, Yay! ...or something! :)
Andrew - quite right of course, how do you tell whether the problem is one of hearing or voice production? Get them to find the note on the piano that matches what they hear? Of course their sensation of that will be distorted in the same sense as the test tone, but at least you might determine whether what they hear has a pitch that can be discriminated from other pitches. Next year the Seashore tests that assess these faculties in a rigorous way will have been around for a whole century.
Reminds me of a recent on-line quiz that purported to recommend the most suitable instrument to learn as a beginner. I answered all the questions as if I were a newbie.
