In the research, perfect pitch, which is a commonly used term, is referred to as absolute or AP pitch. Researchers have known for sometime that the brain structures (parts) of a person with absolute […]

  • Do you or don’t you? Do you know someone who seems to have rhythm coming out of every part or pore and other people who couldn’t walk to a beat if their life depended on it? How much is innate and how much is learned? Rhythm is becoming one of the most researched areas in […]
