* Improvements to the General Workshops, especially in the melodic workshops.
* Dictation exercises now allow playing a count-in when repeating a question or playing the user's answer.

* While the count-in is played, the time signature is now highlighted on the staff (if visible).
* When the count-in option is enabled, the rewind button now jumps directly to the time signature in order to play the material with a count-in.

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.

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...
