Quiz: do you have perfect pitch?

Are you one of those lucky musicians who happens to have perfect pitch? This test will let you know.

Ah, perfect pitch. So many advantages over your comparatively cloth-eared musician friends. When it comes to tuning your instrument, pitching your voice and generally being slightly superior, perfect pitch is just the best.

But what is perfect pitch?

Put simply, it's the ability to name or sing a given musical note without being given a reference note. If someone says 'sing an A', a person with perfect pitch would be able to hum one without even breaking a sweat.

So do you have it? Our simple little test will give you some challenges - get the right answers and you've clearly got perfect pitch.
