Measures of pitch discrimination and tonal memory, subtests of the Seashore Measures of Musical Talents, were administered to 30 adult patients with hyper-functional voice disorders and to 30 matched adult control subjects. No significant differences were found between the two matched groups on either the pitch discrimination or the tonal memory subtests. It does appear, however, that some individual voice patients, similar to individuals in the normal population, demonstrate severe difficulty in making a pitch discrimination or remembering a tonal sequence.
