Amazing Ear Training App!

This Ear Training App is easily the very best app that I have used. It covers all areas that need to be developed in ear training, including pitch and interval training, chord quality, baseline and progression training. It also covers these areas in a very logical sequence for musical growth. But what sets this app apart, is that it gives amazing functionality and flexibility to customize your practice and assessment to target your desired area. This makes it extremely useful in helping any musician to develop. No matter your level of ability, this app can meet your ear training needs!

Active Ear Training

This is, without a doubt, the best ear training app I have ever seen…or heard. It thoroughly covers all the necessary aspects of ear training. This includes progressions, intervals, chord types and inversions, as well as bass lines. There are both quizzes and practice features. Most noteworthy are the many options in the practice sections that allow the user to focus in on exactly what the desired aspects of ear training for each, particular session. I give this app my highest recommendation.
