Absolute pitch and autism - Interview with Henny Kupferstein.
In a very informative and inspiring conversation I had with Henny Kupferstein the co - author of Perfect Pitch in the key of Autism, Henny talks about the findings of her research on autism and perfect pitch.
In her research, she found out that all autistic individuals she tested had absolute pitch except one.
This explains why parents with autistic children usually state that their children are so musical!
What is more interesting is that Henny also discovered that this gift can actually be a problem when teaching the student to read music notation in the traditional way.......
The video below is one of three videos on the subject. I will be sharing the rest of the interview in future posts.
