    “Perfect pitch was long thought to be a rare ability that only some children could acquire if they had the right musical training in early childhood,” Nusbaum said. “However, this study provides further evidence that while the differences in people’s ability to categorize notes are real—and related to cognitive processing—our brains develop in tandem with the skills we practice over our entire lives. So, when it comes to pitch learning, practice, in a sense, really does make ‘perfect.’”

    I once worked with a pianist who said that his perfect pitch abilities would degrade if he didn't play for a long period of time, like 2-3 months, but would come back after regular rehearsals. He also said that his perception of acoustic piano notes was better than with a digital piano or synth.
