Re: Pitch learning

In response to Linda Seltzer's comments:

I think you are confusing expressive freedom with the absence of an underlying system. Expressive devices usually gain their power by being perceived as deviations from an implied norm or standard. However, as I am not an expert on pitch or intonation, let alone on non-Western music, I cannot say much more than that. I hope the experts will send their reactions.
