Ear training is highly essential for any musician - be it a composer, singer, songwriter or instrumentalist. It practices the ability to connect music theory elements (intervals, chords, scales) with real sounds you hear. The benefits of mastering ear training include improved intonation and musical memory, confidence in improvisation or the ability to transcribe music more easily.

MyEarTraining makes ear training practice possible almost anywhere and anytime on the go, thus saving you from the hassle of assembling musical instruments. You can practically train your ears while waiting at the bus stand, traveling, or even at your coffee desk.

Whether you are new to music theory, need to prepare for an intensive school exam, or are an experienced musician, there are over 100 aural exercises to help you push your music skills. Users with no ear training experience begin with simple perfect intervals, major vs. minor chords and simple rhythms. Advanced users can progress through seventh chord inversions, complex chord progressions and exotic scale modes. You can use tonal exercises with solfeggio or singing exercises to improve your inner ear. Input answers using buttons or virtual piano keyboard. For major music topics, MyEarTraining offers different courses and lessons including basic music theory. Interval songs and practice piano are also included.

MyEarTraining app works by combining different ear training approaches like isolated sounds, singing exercises, and functional exercises (sounds in tonal context) to train your ears, thus maximizing results. It’s designed for musicians who want to improve their relative pitch recognition abilities and get one step further towards perfect pitch.

If I could give six stars I would.

So much fun to use, so helpful in so many ways. I’m a music teacher and having a tool like this to put into the hands of students is amazing.

My one gripe is that the rhythmic dictation exercises make it difficult to ascertain when exactly a note is cut off, that is, whether you’re hearing 1. A quarter note followed by a rest, or 2. A dotted quarter followed by an eighth rest. That being said, I’m not sure how is the best way to fix that, and the app would be amazing even if there was no rhythmic dictation at all.

Great and keeps getting better

The exercises are well thought out. The interface is simple and well constructed. I never encounter any performance issues. I’ve had the app for a number of years now and I’ve been very satisfied. The developers have added a bunch of cool features since I’ve had the app.

I particularly like the random melodies exercise and the chord identification, in both the reader training section and theory section.

I highly recommend the pay version. Being able to create your own criteria for the random melodies section is great.

Great App

This is one of the best ear training apps. And I’ve tried most of them. I paid for the upgraded version. Definitely worth it for me. I chose this specifically because so few apps had descending melodic intervals. At first that was all that I used it for. But, I keep finding new and better ways to use it. One suggestion. Can you add an update that lets users increase the size of the fonts? The fonts are fairly small within the app. Would be great to give some more accessibility options.
