Perfect Pitch in the Key of Autism: A Guide for Educators, Parents and the Musically Gifted

Authors: Henny Kupferstein, Susan Rancer

Autistic people and musical individuals often have perfect pitch, a gift they were born with. The musical gift may be accompanied with learning differences such as reading comprehension problems, trouble with mathematics, and significant difficulties in learning how to read music. The authors combined many years of teaching experience to develop a research-based method that maximizes students’ gifts to advance their musicianship.

"This book will help the quirky kid who is different to be successful in music. This method may help open musical doors for many individuals on the autism spectrum."
