I got 80.6% right without any musical training except for half a year of guitar lessons :D
What's your score?

77.8 % right lol, I've never done anything with music besides 1 month of drum lessons when I was like 8 years old or something.
This seems to be more of a memory test though, you just gotta remember what the first tune sounds like. (But ofcourse I know absolutely nothing about music so I dunno what I'm talking about :P)

well, listening to something and memorizing the pitch exactly the way it is is important for this test and that's not always as easy as it sounds ;o (no pun intended)

83.3% :toot:

I sort of tuned out (heh) for some of them and had to guess but most were really easy. I play clarinet in a concert band where we're listening to everyone's pitch all the time, and after you play the same song over and over, when somebody makes a mistake it's very easy to hear out. I guess I've been kind of trained on this already.

im very close to it. I have a really good ear for relative pitches, with all the sightsinging and timpani I have to do.

94.4% Correct

But I've had 16 years worth of piano lessons, so I barely think this counts for anything.
Is this necroposting? XD

I got 83.3% o_O

I'm the granddaughter of a piano tuner ... And was the only one in the family who couldn't seem to tell when a piano was out of tune. Plus I messed up my eardrum once. Thought for sure I was tone deaf o_O

I took 4 years of clarinet & bass clarinet back when I was in school, and about a year of piano when I was a little kid, but I wasn't great, and I never thought myself terribly musically inclined in any way.
