Ear Training is a skill that will help you to identify specific basic components of music, such as melody, pitch, and intervals via hearing alone. Thus, the best way to train your ears is to simply sing or play an instrument since you become familiar with how specific notes should sound. For this reason, the voice lessons in this application use carefully selected notes that will not only train your ears, but also provide you with the muscle memory you’ll need to sing many of the common patterns in Western music. To gain this skill, you need only practice the included lessons.
However, if you have purchased the “Ear Training for Singers” add-on, you will have access to a new selection of programs that are theoretically more complete than the voice lessons and can significantly expand your musicianship. To access these programs, expand the Ear Training for Singers section and tap on any of the programs under it. The ear training programs are fundamentally different than the voice training programs in that they are not meant to be practiced as integral units. You can pick any exercise you want from any of the ear training programs, and practice it on its own. You can even use some of these exercises for warmup and cool-down.
We recommend completing Breathing Essentials and Beginner Program 1 before attempting the exercises under Ear Training for Singers. When you’re practicing the ear training exercises, you can use any sound you find comfortable or any of the sounds from the voice training lessons.
