Our goal is to train musicians with absolute pitch who can initiate positive change in the world. - Professor John Amaral

US College of Music, Inc. announces Perfect Pitch Bootcamp™, a personalized ear training environment and perfect pitch course that incorporates proprietary technologies and processes which bypass the second state of consciousness in order to train Absolute Pitch Recognition in active cooperation with Relative Pitch within a larger context of real music in real-time, which is the musician's 'holy-grail': the only college-level professional perfect pitch training, ear training course.

According to US School of Commercial Music's Director, Professor John Amaral, “For years, we've been asking the question 'How can we train all the fundamental music listening strategies (Absolute, Relative, Intervallic and Perfect Pitch) in a musical context? It sounds simple but it's very complex. That's because normally we tend to rely on only one or two of the strategies, which is a weak position for a musical artist to be in. Finally today, by selectively manipulating many learning factors gleaned from recent cross-disciplinary research, we are able to train motivated individuals to divide their attention, multitask their perceptions and 'hear differently'.”

Perfect Pitch Bootcamp incorporates the latest research from scientists Diana Deutsch (perfect pitch and music psychology), Poppy Crum (music games), Aniruddh Patel (music and language), Thomas Münte (brain neuroplasticity), David Peterson (biofeedback) and Bob Cooley (genotypical flexibility) with Apple Computer's iOS gaming platforms.

True Perfect Pitch is the ability to remember, reproduce, recognize and distinguish musical pitches and their combinations within larger musical events. Throughout history, many great performers and composers have had the skill, although it is a natural rarity in the West (less than 1 in 10,000 individuals). Relative Pitch, the ability to recognize relationships in music, is a common skill but it is not maximally developed, even among musicians. What if Absolute Pitch and Relative Pitch listening skills could be perfected in isolation and then combined for full synergistic effect? A recent nexus of findings in technology and research makes it possible to create the conditions whereby the brain can be influenced to rapidly 'rewire' at any time of life and reinforce new music recognition strategies.

At around $10,000, the intensive 14-day residential training is not inexpensive, but, as Professor Amaral says, "For many musicians, Perfect Pitch in the context of Relative Pitch is a priceless career-enhancing skill, a long-term 'holy-grail' goal and a foundation of their artistic practice. History has shown that precocious artists who have it often routinely create peak musical experiences for others and powerfully leverage positive world change!"
