Listening is the most important skill in music, and this app will help you to listen better.

Ear Trainer Lite is an educational tool designed for musicians, music students and anyone interested in improving ones musical ear. It has exercises covering intervals, chords, and scales. This is the LITE version with 32 exercises. The full version has over 260 exercises and the ability to create custom exercises.

Ear Trainer Lite covers the following categories:

- Interval Comparison (18 exercises)
- Chord Identification (3 exercises)
- Chord Progressions (3 exercises)
- Scales (4 exercises)
- Melody (4 exercises)

Each exercise has a short description of its purpose and optional preview. A virtual piano keyboard in each exercise helps you visually understand and analyze the notes that have been played. To aid your progression you can compare the different options after answering. (You can even play the virtual piano if you like!)

As you progress through the exercises, statistics are collected so that you can see your progress.

The questions in the exercises are randomly generated so you can do them over and over again as many times as you like to continue to hone your skills.

Ear trainer lite.

Really good, but by choosing random keys this program tends to become confusing and misses a simple opportunity. Like the vast majority of music heads, without perfect pitch, I know I will (most likely) never have perfect pitch. If the exercises could be re-jigged to use middle C as the root I personally feel that this program would be at a level to achieve its primary objectives but in a context which would go further in fulfilling the aspirations and learning desires of those of use drawn to committing to spend good money to go further.


One of the best apps available

Just awesome. Provides the ear training that I have been seeking. I absolutely recommend this app.


Great little app, feels like a game

So much fun! I've been playing guitar for a couple years, although without much "serious" music background. This is filling in some big gaps for me. It's fun though -- feels more like a quiz show. It would be better if the sound was more "natural". I have some difficulty relating the pure tones to the sounds I hear out of the instrument -- for example, fifths in this app sound slightly sour to me, and I can't figure out why. I think it might be that a guitar generates harmonic overtones I have learned to relate to better than these more pure ones. Still, it seems to be changing my ability to play for the better! I'd also like to try other formats -- for example, play one interval and choose between options for what it was.
