In this interview with Dima Tahboub of DoReMeStudio.com, we discuss how the Rancer Method builds neurological pathways to have magnify the gift of perfect pitch. Instead of the gift being a problem, there are surprising byproducts of the neuroplastic changes and visual motor cohesion, changes in eye tracking, and explosions in speech and vocalization.
Henny Kupferstein is the co-author of Perfect Pitch in the Key of Autism, the book on the Rancer Method designed to teach note-reading for gifted students.
For the benefit of UK musicians: what is note-reading? Is it the same as sight-reading, or is it some form of note-recognition?
Yes, note-reading is the same as sight-reading. The student is taught how to read notation, however not all students have sight, such as students who read notation in braille.
