I Bought iear app five weeks ago because I wanted to try the Tomatis method without paying thousands of dollars.
I have lived in California for 26 years and I hated my English accent, until a couple of weeks ago.
This app is helping me to rekindle my interest to enjoy classical music and specially opera.
I use this app from one to two hours at day.
As an added bonus, my voice sounds better with more lows and highs. There is a new willingness to have conversations.
VERY hard to get started
Not sure how to rate it as I have spent several hours trying to use it, watching all their Youube videos and downloading the manual and have had no luck actually accessing any music. I spent several weeks researching the Tomastis method before spending $100 on an app. Feeling very discouraged (and possibly ripped off) at the moment.
The real Tomatis effect
I was reviewing the LITE the other application of the company and I was writing this which is true for this app as well.
As a professional musician and educator ( music theory and composition ) I consider Tomatis method invaluable.
I did the Tomatis method years ago when the electronic ear ( the amazing invention of Tomatis ) was analogue and very expensive to be made. After 6 months I felt I had new ears : amazing perception of higher frequencies, I could hear the strings and brass sections of the orchestra very clearly, I could understand and speak English much easier and experienced very significant changes in my life( mood, etc )
There was only one problem - it was really expensive.
Then the electronic ear became digital and its quality improved significantly ——but it became more expensive which was odd given that its real cost was reduced — The solisten for instance the currecnt official Tomatis method device is a mp4 player and it is not technically better than an iphone - besides the headphones which are higher quality and one can find easily in the market.
You can find out more about the Tomatis method and its applications on line — this device will reproduce the Tomatis effect you will have it for life for you and for other people you want to help.
I always wanted to become a “certified” Tomatis consultant but it used to be and still is very expensive.
This is an electronic ear which you can buy ; after you can get some basic training “official” or unofficial reading books etc.
It is a fraction of the cost of solisten and the whole franchise Tomatis program thing and it really works.
Some notes on its use.
You have to import music from CDs or other digital sources in iTunes manually. It will NOT play music or movies downloaded from iTunes.
Import a cd or other files and create a playlist for these files.
Synchronize your phone / iPad with iTunes and you will the playlist in iear .
It is simple but you have to spend some time with to be familiar with its functions .
