Overview

Absolute pitch, as compared the relative pitch, is the ability to identify a musical note without any reference. In the Western World, only one person out of 10.000 has an "active" absolute pitch, meaning they would be able to sing a correctly pitched note without any reference note. The famous Juilliard School of Music, in New York, failed in trying to train their students to have an absolute pitch.
As absolute pitch is a precise way to recognize and to identify a sound, the military forces, particularly Marines, were interested in this peculiarity. But this was before improvements in electro-acoustics.
Absolute pitch is the ability, for a percentage of musicians, to recognize and determine, without any previous reference, the name of one or several successive or simultaneous notes.
