What’s New

Version 1.1.5

New features:
* In Results, the lesson number and title are shown together, so you can easily see what lesson it is (e.g. "2.5 - All intervals").
* In Dictation and Singback exercises with accompaniment voices, the volume of the voices is now adjusted so that the evaluated voice is louder than the accompaniment.
* The first module of all the General Workshops are now free, except for Interval Singing, Chord Progressions and Scales ID which only include one or a few modules.

Bug fixes:
* Chord progressions: better use of the grand staff to display chords.
* Melodic dictation: If a question contained only one real tone and "Show first tone" was checked, it would fail. Now the "Show first tone" option is automatically forced off if there is only one tone in the question.
* Melody generator with rhythms: if the exercise would only include 1-bar examples and the whole note was selected, only whole notes would be picked as questions, no matter what other note values were selected.
* Rhythm generator: when 8th triplets were enabled, including their rests, in 4/4, a triplet with an 8th and a 4th without showing the triplet sign could be generated.
* Fixed lesson 24.15 in the RCM course. Lesson is about minor 6th, but the interval played was Perfect 5th.
* Fixed a description in the Beginner's Course lesson 10.10: it claimed to include the dotted half, but it was nothing but empty promises.
* Interval Comparison: the big gray question mark was too big on iPhone. Its size has now been reduced a little.
* If the device name started with an emoji, EarMaster would show errors and fail to run properly.

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...
