I have decided to embark on a journey to acheive perfectly relative pitch. Why you may ask? Well I find the possibilities of such an ability quite astounding. If one has relative pitch and the ability to write music then there would be absolutely no need for an instrument at all in the composing process. I could simply write music like I am writing this journal entry. I find that appealing. Total creative freedom is the order of my life. So in order to fulfill said goal I am going through the course outlined in Hearing and Writing Music by Ron Gorow. So far so good, I am on learning to distinguish fifths from fourths. I am making progress slowly but surely!
