Challenged by a friend born with perfect pitch, I learnt how white
keys "sound like", I associated every note with a musical piece I know
well, for example, C is the first note of Mendehlson wedding march, if
someone play a single isolated C i can say: "Hmm, that sound like the
first note of wedding march, so it must be a C" This is pretty unuseful
and slow process, the error rate is high (I find notes in fifth
similar in couples, expecially C-G and D-A), but I got it in short time
(one or two weeks) if you really want it you may go much furter by
practising a lot.

> Now to the linux part: It would be dead simple to write a script that

GNU solfege have an exercise that ask to identify tones, you may
configure it to play only a small selection of notes up to the whole 12
tone scale. And it keeps track of statistics.
