Re: Perfect Pitch without teacher?
Sorry dude, it has to be born with. The piano player/singer in my band who is a good friend of mine has it and it just blows me away. I have heard stories from her family about how she noticed the pitch of her grandmother's cat (C#) as a child and I'm convinced that you have to be born with it.
I'll bet you can work on your ear, I'd suggest learning the piano, but you can't teach yourself perfect pitch. I know that learning piano did a world of good for me. I have a terrible musical ear so being able to read suffices for not being able to learn parts by ear.
Sale of this space pending.
