Philip Daniel wrote:Perfect pitch is not an ability but rather an enhancement of relative pitch, and many of the great composers did not have it i.e. Bach (I list him as having relative pitch because there is little proof that he had perfect pitch), Gluck, Haydn, Wagner, Stravinsky, & Ravel. Very few did, among them Mozart, Beethoven, and Rimsky-Korsakov. I myself have only relative pitch, as did most of the greatest musicians. It does not determine musical ability at all.

I started young but I don't have perfect pitch, though I have very high relative pitch.
