AURALBOOK for ABRSM Grade 1 is written based on the latest ABRSM syllabus. It is the world's first patented interactive electronic music book.

The syllabus on which AURALBOOK for ABRSM is based is © by The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music and is reproduced by permission of the copyright owner.

Its "Digital Ear" accurately receives signals of a student’s performance on singing pitches and volumes, clapping rhythms and intensities.

Then, its "Artificial Intelligence" function analyses and points out areas for improvement in real time.

Finally, its "Cloud Computing" feature further creates statistical analysis based on the student's track records, and makes suggestions to teachers about areas to target for training students.

All these help to enhance the student's pitch, rhythm and listening capabilities.

It includes:

Test 1: Clap the pulse

• Students can clap in time with the music and AURALBOOK will analyse and display both the original music and what students have clapped on the same music sheet in real time.

• AURALBOOK will give detailed suggestions on how to improve the accuracy of clapping

Test 2: Sing as ‘echoes’

• Students can sing back as echo each of three phrases and AURALBOOK will analyse and display both original music and what students have sang on the same music sheet in real time.

• AURALBOOK will give detailed suggestions on how to improve the accuracy of singing

Test 3: Identify changes in pitch

• AURALBOOK will explain where the pitch changes occur if students have selected the wrong answer

Test 4: Recognise features

• Student can select answers, which should be said in the actual examinations

• A detailed explanation will be given for every question. Not just simple Q&A

• If students have selected an incorrect answer, AURALBOOK will tell them why the answer is inappropriate and automatically replay the section of music that students need to hear.


You can now learn music through a revolutionary product!

Customer Reviews

Expensive and seriously flawed

Dave shukomoto

Being a bit of a gadget geek, I downloaded this and the grade 2&3 versions.

I was initially quite impressed but then I explored it a little more and found there to be only 12 questions in the free version. Ok I thought, I'll buy the extra books, book 1 book 2 and book 3 at a cost of £25. I thought I was buying the books for the other grades in a nice package.

After spending far too long trying to work out how to access the book 2 and 3 material, I realised I had just bought hundreds of questions for Grade 1. This is very misleading!

Hate second issue that has now arisen is that after one practice at the clapping telling me that all was correct, no matter what question I try the app tells me that I have clapped far more beats than needed. I must just clap the correct beats in a strong rhythm. Well,

A. The terminology is wrong.
B. the one star of 5 it gives me, telling me to "not give up" is really not much use.

In short, there are too many flaws in this for me to ever use it with the kids I teach. What a waste of money!

It is just great!

Try it if you are preparing ABRSM Exam! It is really helpful and far better than the other aural apps or aural trainer. Those other are just app version of the CD you can buy from ABRSM (i.e. playing music only), but this one is a real teacher who can listen your preformance and tell you how to improve your singing, clapping and listening skill!!

Two parents with no musical ability. Daughter from 5 to 8 is Grade 3 Piano with Merit & Distinction passes in her exams. One 30 minute lesson a week and then using Auralbooks App during the week. We are now starting on Grade 4 Auralbook - the marking can be a bit harsh, but the Apps are brilliant.
