Ever wondered what your IQ would be when it comes to music? Researchers at Harvard University have created a test – now played by more than two million people – to find out how you make sense of the music you hear.
Created by The Music Lab, which is based in Harvard’s Psychology department, the test is part of several games on the lab’s website, including a tone deafness test.
The 20-minute test involves three stages, with each stage testing your ability in the following categories; Beat Alignment, Melodic Discrimination, and Mistuning Perception.
In each test section, quiz-takers are given two musical extracts to listen to, each with a slight variation. But can you tell the difference?
Grab a pair of headphones, find a quiet room, and why not take the quiz now.
