What’s New

Version 1.1.9

* Better instructions in singing and clapping exercises.
* After popular demand, all singing lessons in the Beginner's Course now use "User's vocal range" and no longer lock to the G-clef. The default user setting is still Mezzo-Soprano G-clef and you can still sing in any octave you want, but your vocal range setting now does matter in this course.
* Text revision of the French Beginner's Course.
* Bug fix in the melody generator: when a special pattern was combined with the note value that starts the pattern, it could create incomplete bars.
* When a melody has only one tone while the "Show First Tone" option is turned on, EarMaster now automatically turns off "Show First Tone".
* Bug Fix: Computer-generated rhythms could have multiple 16th note rests in a row when using special patterns.
* Bug fix: Guitar fret dots would disappear after switching to violin/cello and back.
* Solved error message "tVGMelodyScoreLib.SetExerciseSetup ..." shown when completing lesson 10.12 through 11.7 of the Beginner's Course in one session.
* Fixed a problem with very long EarMaster Cloud passwords.
* When receiving a phone call (Facetime, Zoom, Skype, etc.) while using EarMaster, EarMaster now remains paused while the call is in progress.

Years ago, I wanted to teach myself ear training. I painstakingly recorded hundreds of bits of different notes from my piano onto a cassette. Pure torture, and not much use. Now when I’m getting old they come up with this amazingly useful, thorough and fun app! And they don’t try to rip you off. The free parts are great. And the other parts, which I purchased are priced at a very reasonable price, and there’s no subscription rip-off, you have access to the purchased parts forever! Top marks! Thank you.

Just what I need

I can sight read well (I play descant, treble, tenor and bass recorders in three amateur bands) but I haven’t been able to play by ear or sing. This app is great because I can progress at my own pace and I find it enjoyable. I’ve been using it for maybe 6 months and am making steady progress. Incidentally, I’m 70 years old so one is never too old to learn. Many thanks.

Great musical ear training!

This is a great app to train your ear in order to become a good musician. There are a few things missing but very good and it works well. It’s really making a difference
