Even today there are some universities around the world that teach their students that absolute pitch can’t be learned. You’re either born with it or not. Personally, I know this to be a completely false statement considering I learned this skill in my teens.
So what exactly is absolute pitch (also known as perfect pitch)? It is the ability to hear a musical note or chord and name it.
I predict that in the future universities will start to wake up to the fact that this is a skill that can be taught, just like language and art. Until then there will always be people that don’t try to understand it. Instead they simply dismiss it as a genetic defect. I guess the saying “People criticize what they don’t understand”, applies to absolute pitch.
