"The exercises are so well thought out, and have so much to offer both the complete beginner and the most world class musicians alike.

What’s New

Version 1.1.13

* Fixed a crash when trying to access a locked feature.
* Fixed an error message that could be displayed when starting EarMaster on iOS 15 ("AudioUnitInitialize...").
* Chord progressions in flat keys: pressing bII, bIII, bV, bVI or bVII on the solfege keyboard (e.g. bII in Gb major) would insert a natural (e.g. it would insert G instead of the expected Abb).
* Chord progressions: the automatic detection of whether a progression is in a major or a minor key has been improved.
* Permission requests to use the device's microphone are handled in a better way.
* The list of Training Modes is better to handle situations where a student has many assignments.
* Results: better handling of the custom date range option.
* Solved a problem in the Chinese version where the text of the lesson introduction could be cut off by mistake.

BEST ON THE MARKET. YOU NEED THIS.

I never write reviews. This is my first ever. But when an app comes along that changes the way I practice, helps the way I teach, and provides a new way of hearing music, I couldn’t help but do a review. 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. Albeit this is a tool, and what you do with it is up to you, but through this training you can truly take the phrase “if you can hear it, you can play it” to heart. Thank you to the entire EarMaster team.

Thanks a lot for your kind words!

Visible improvement

It’s an extremely useful app, I can see an obvious improvement after about three weeks of using it. I’m currently using the exercises (after purchasing the bundle). It’s really worth the money imho. One thing I’ve noticed though that I didn’t like so far is in the Chord inversions exercise when I make a mistake whether it was an augmented chord and not a diminished one, it logically should show the difference between the different chord types for the SAME key in my opinion and not based on the first note you hear. Or is there some kind of a setting where this can be changed?
Otherwise, so far, I’m a very happy user. I use it daily for 45-60 minutes doing two rounds of each exercise type in my current exercise set.

EarMaster is really helping me a lot!

EarMaster is not just for the youth and teens, but I love it and I am an older adult just now getting into music. I have a lot of catching up to do and EarMaster has tons of lessons designed to give users a thorough background from the basics on up. And all this for a nominal cost. Additionally, on occasion I have some technical, music-related questions and each time I have asked about something, I got a prompt and thorough response. I have much respect for this app and the people who put it together as well as what it can do to help others to become more musically talented. Hope this is helpful. Take care...
