Absolute Pitch research, ear training and more
Chordhopper activates your mind's natural perceptual strategies, using chords to make you hear pitches. The first two chords used are CEG and CFA:
By attentively identifying each of these two chords, you will automatically begin to hear the shared pitch (C) as a separate and unique sound.
You don't have to try to do this; you don't have to figure anything out. You simply play Chordhopper, and your unconscious mind will extract the pitches for you.
Then the next chord is BDG, which brings out the G.
Then the chords are inverted, to reinforce the sound of a pitch across octaves.
After only nine chords, you will have automatically learned to hear all seven pitches of the C-major scale in multiple octaves.
The training then continues with many more chords, some of which will introduce the "black key" tones, and others which continue to reinforce the "white key" pitches across multiple octaves.
The research* has shown this method to be effective for 100% of children aged 2-4, even when it is the only form of musical training the children receive.
If you're 5 or older, this method alone will not give you absolute pitch. A person of any age will automatically learn to hear all 12 tones as separate, individual, and unique. While that's enough for a preschooler to acquire absolute pitch, an adult must also learn to detect the tone chroma.
That's where Absolute Pitch Avenue comes in. Absolute Pitch Avenue trains you to detect and recognize the tone chroma characteristic necessary for learning absolute pitch.
You will hear recognizable results very quickly, and your perception and performance will continue to improve as your ear learns more and more every day. If you aren't satisfied, for any reason, your purchase is protected by a 100% money-back guarantee.
