Neuroscience-based musical tests and population statistics!!

adaptive pitch - determine how well you can discriminate similar pitches
rhythm test - compare similar rhythmical phrases to see how well you can hear subtle differences
tonedeaf test - taken by over 1 million people
musical visual - match up each sound with a visual symbol

I ran across these tests a few years ago and thought that others here might enjoy taking them.  They are challenging. I'd recommend a quiet room with no distractions and a good set of headphones.

Sadly, according to science, I'm not the mid-life prodigy I was hoping to be.  But I did score quite a bit better than in 2009 when I tried them, so practice and persistence is having an effect!

Here's the link:
(look for the "Start Test" button on each of the individual test pages, its about 2/3 of the way down the page).

Crikey! They were harder than I thought they'd be. Still my performance wasn't too shameful. I think we should get Beth to do them!

I got an 80.6 on that Karen....I guess that's pretty good considering it took me a few phrases before I caught on to what I was supposed to do.  They toss em at you pretty quick and you have to be ready to listen !  <:-\
