Music theory made easy and fun!

EarMaster is a great tool for ear training, sight-singing and rhythm at all skill levels. The app includes all you need to build up your music theory skills and become a better musician. Try it, it's not only fun to use but also very efficient: some of the best music schools use EarMaster.

"The exercises are so well thought out, and have so much to offer both the complete beginner and the most world class musicians alike. Being an instructor at Nashville Music Academy, I can say this app has developed my ear and my students ear to a level that would have taken many more years to develop, if at all, without it. Do yourself a favor, take the step, make the commitment to complete all the exercises, and watch yourself grow as a musician like you never thought possible." - User review by Chiddychat in App Store, Feb 2020.

Used in my Music College

This is a great app. Came across this via my Music Production course at a reputable school in Dublin. I highly recommend it. Minor feedback for the content: for all the lessons where we need to identify intervals sometimes the higher notes are played first and sometimes the lower notes first. This wouldn’t be a problem normally but because the notation always displays them on top of each other it’s hard to get guidance. Best thing to do is clearly display on the grid the order in which they are played, rather than using chord style notation. Thanks.

This is a fantastic app, excellent features, highly customisable and a useful tool for anyone wanting to improve specific areas of interest. I liked the opportunity to try/ purchase individual exercises, relevant to me and the option of a bundle. Suits all ability levels and for me, I can see - a real improvement in my ability, to, for example identify intervals. Good to have the option to use with a digital piano too!

The best music theory app

I used to learn using the computer software and this is so comparable. I do have a Chromebook and so I wish this app was also on th Google Play Store. This helps me become a better musician and each week I notice improvements in my playing. Thank you and blessings to the creators of this app
