Raymond Veith Posted April 1, 2017 Report Share Posted April 1, 2017 I have one implant.....Activated 8 weeks ago....Awaiting my second side implant in about 6 weeks. I am a 67 year old guitar player and a singer. I really miss music and so hoping it will again bring me joy. Right now, music just sounds like varying degrees of static with a rythmic beat. I started testing my pitch perception with a piano. I play a note, then sing that note as I hear it, and using piano tuner app on my phone, can determine what note I am singing. I am finding that my pitch perception is about 5 whole steps low.....I.e....I play a middle C on the piano and I perceive that note as E-flat below middle C. I have found several articles that explain that musical pitch perception is one of the short comings with CIs. Have any of you found any training that you would recommend for pitch training?? I have two friends with whom I love singing Crosby Stills and Nash music, but it is impossible unless I can correctly determine the pitch. Thank you.
