I agree with Bill.  Interesting topic.  My professor said that one student he had with perfect pitch was interesting to teach.  He said it was fun to mess around with the student, I think he said it was a she.  It had to do with site reading and him playing the piano... I think intentionally wrong.. and he like to see it register on her face, every slightly off note, even in sophisticated pieces.  I think I am botching up the story.

It has been a relief to me to finally be able to hear the wrong notes when I play.    I was playing Star Spangled Banner this week and I could hear the places after all this time where I was not reaching for the right note completely...  Slowly but surely...

I am also able to pick a song and play a good couple of sentences in a short period of time.  If I know the song pretty well... This has been a relief....since I can usually go to the notes now from ear, usually in five minutes or so, I actually think it is fun.  

I still prefer to use sheet to read and play with, but it this ear thing that is opening up it also a relief and fun.

Cheers.

Well, yeah. One of the biggest assets that perfect pitch gives you is to be able to play some songs just by listening to them. Sheet music, not usually needed. I do that all the time with any instrument that I know and have entertained a lot of my friends doing so.
