Rather than an isolated ability, intonation is an amalgam of several sub-skills including pitch discrimination, pitch matching, and instrument tuning. Success at these skills depends on many factors including musical experience and the nature of the task presented. However, ability in any one of these areas is not clearly related to ability in the others. This chapter reviews research on these skills and discusses how they are demonstrated by developing and advanced musicians, and how findings may impact music teaching.
