PitchTrainer! is a free app designed to help test and train musical pitch perception skills. The app was created primarily to facilitate a research study on the variation in musical pitch perception ability in the general population.

PitchTrainer! offers players an opportunity to participate in research on pitch perception. If you enroll in our research study, the app will allow you to participate as a research subject.

PitchTrainer! players who are interested in learning more and participating in related research studies may contact the research study coordinator at elenak@nshs.edu
