• You sing your favourite song and somebody tells you you're "out of tune"
• You just don't seem to hear the detail in music that other people do...?

I love the premise of this app. It can be very difficult to test a student's ear individually in the choral classroom. I do, however, take issue with the words "You might be tone deaf..." scrawled across the screen if a student does poorly on their test. I went back to see what happened if somebody did poorly and was disappointed to see that instead of encouraging the candidate to practice ans try again, the app instantly reinforces the belief that the candidate is already tone deaf. I would love to use this with my students, but don't want them thinking they are tone deaf if they test poorly.

Not Tone deaf, although I sing like I am.


I got 100% on this test 12/12 in all three sections. I think my singing is beyond help. I do play guitar, and when I play with my friends I am the only one who doesn't even sing backup vocals. However, I can hear a song and play it on my guitar, I don't think someone who's tone deaf could play by ear.

Had to know


I played instruments when I was younger, but could never sing. People throw around the term "tone deaf" so freely that I started wondering if maybe I was. Especially since it's been so long. Scored a perfect 100 and has removed doubt, so I can go forward with training to sing.
