It is very important to practice “soft skills” in music. Ear Training is probably one of the key aspects of the music studies very commonly overlooked by most of the people.
Why should you invest your precious time in Ear Training? Very simple, you will become a better musician.
There’s no rocket science here. EarTraining means you can sing notes before you play, you can identify the type of chords (major, minor, dominant, augmented, etc), intervals, scales and etc.
There are several ways to practice that. Technology came to help us and you can find many software and applications.
My preferred one is Ear Master as it simply combines everything in a nice iPad app, with all the functionalities I need. The additional benefits of using a software like that one for music is the fact you get all analytics, progress development and statistics. You can compare your evolution and define goals. And as a side effect, you have it on the go, as it is installed the tablet as well as in your notebook or desktop. All synchronized, so whatever you have completed in one device is already updated everywhere.
Life is getting easier for guitar, piano, flute, clarinet students. And not only them, for all musicians, all instruments. Excuses to not to study are getting over and over. So roll your leaves on and get your Ear Training studies up to speed!
