PitchMatch! was created by researchers at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research in New York in order to understand variation in musical pitch perception and innate musical ability in the general population. No musical training or experience is required!
Whether you are a seasoned music professional or have never even touched a musical instrument, PitchMatch! gives you the power to explore musical pitch perception abilities you may be unaware you possess. It can also be used to develop your pitch perception skills with practice. You may discover that you have the rare musical trait known as absolute* (“perfect”) pitch! PitchMatch! shows how your results compare to the general population.
Challenge yourself to play through all levels (1-6) of increasing difficulty. Begin your experience as a ‘PitchMatch Player’ and aim to become a ‘PitchMatch Wizard’! Share your PitchMatch! achievements with friends by email and Facebook.

NOTE: Using Headphones or Earbuds to play is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. This app requires high levels of concentration. Allow yourself time in a quiet area and immerse yourself in the world of pitch perception!
*Absolute or Perfect Pitch is a rare cognitive trait that involves the ability to identify and name musical pitches (tones) without the use of an external reference pitch (tone).
