The best ear training method. Multi-Pitch ear training. Develop Relative and Perfect Pitch.

This app is designed after a very popular exercise taught by a world famous music education guru in the Boston area. Many generations of musicians from all over the world traveled to Boston and waited in a two-year waiting list to access this information and now it is available to everyone at a low price.

It will help anybody significantly improve their aural skills.
From beginners to professionals, this is a great workout for your ears.

Hear from 1 to 11 notes at the time relative to any major key, diatonically or chromatically. Select whether you want to see notes by name, degrees or movable do.
It's fun, it includes flexible options, it's very easy to use and extremely effective. Now you can train and open up your ears anytime, anywhere!
If you stick to it it will build up your perceptions all the way to near perfect pitch.

Politonus keeps track of your progress and tells you when you've reached a master level in the current settings so you can confidently move on to a more complex ear training workout (Both note streak and accuracy circles will turn green).

Politonus includes a coach with a powerful algorithm for relative and/or perfect pitch that acts as an ear training tutor. It presents progressive exercises and allows you to step up to a harder level when you are ready. With Politonus you'll have a great ear training teacher anywhere!

You will not regret this purchase.

Some bugs still

This is mostly a good app. It has great potential but feels like it’s a bit early-stage, especially for the price.

One bug that is pretty annoying, is when I hit the repeat button to hear the notes again when random key is on, the I-IV-V-I plays in a different random key! Then the test notes play the same as before, but the relationship to the 1-4-5-1 is now changed.

Another thing that would be nice is not to get the immediate feedback on what the correct guesses should have been. I’d like the option to have it only say which notes were correct that I guessed, and let me continue trying to figure out the others.

Also I’d like to have the option to have the coach drill a specific note combination more often when it’s clear that I’ve missed that one before, and drill the ones I nail perfectly less and less.

Thanks for your work on this app! I hope it continues to improve. I’ll gladly change my rating when the bugs disappear.

This app is a powerful ear-training tool!

Ear training is such an important skill for any developing musician in any genre (jazz, rock, classical, country, etc.), yet so many musicians just want to "learn chords!!". Politonus is a great ear-training app and has tools that will sharpen your ear so that you will progressively be able to hear and identify more of the sounds that you are playing and/or hearing. If you play music professionally or for fun, having good ears is a must. Musicians aren't born with good ears and must develop them to sound good. Think of the power you'll have if you could in real-time identify the chords your guitarist may be strumming during a solo. Better ears meaning being more aware of what's missing or "wrong", so you can add, enhance the music. It will also improve your ability to transcribe your favorite songs more quickly (w/o having to buy sheet music!), and will improve your improvisation skills. When you can detect wrong notes more quickly, you will more often play more of the right ones and become a better comper behind soloists as well. I love Politonus and if you use it, it will help you to "play what you hear" and "hear what you play" rather than only being able to strum some jazz chord off of a music chart.
