We discuss two issues raised in the article about the acquisition of absolute pitch published in Music Perception by W. A. Brown, H. Sachs, K. Cammuso, and S. E. Folstein (2002) with which we disagree. First, we describe that aspect of musical training we feel is relevant for the acquisition of absolute pitch. Second, we point out a disagreement about the statistical nature of developmental stages and critical periods. We describe an alternative view of absolute pitch acquisition.
