Dental Pitch: A Way to Obtain Perfect Pitch Using Your Teeth

Here is how to simulate perfect pitch using your teeth:

  • Tap your teeth together. You should hear the same pitch every time you tap your teeth together.
  • Go to a piano and find what note corresponds to the pitch coming from your teeth. For example, my teeth give me a Db.
  • Hum your way up (or down) from that note to C.
