The audio version of the word "visualize"?

hey yall. ive been thinking lately, since ive been getting better and better at guitar, that my pitch is getting better. i can "picture in my mind" the note that any given string on the guitar makes. when i whistle it and then play the string, the notes are the same.

so my question is... what would you call that? what is the action of "picturing a sound in my head"? its like visualizing but instead of using my "mind's eye" im using my "mind's ear". i am imagining a sound, not an image. so what would the word for that be? like an audial version of the word "visualize".

i feel like there is no word for this, but i think there really should be... and its tearing me apart inside.
