Ultimate Ear Trainer is a unique ear training program. Rather than drill scale, chord and interval recognition, like the many ear training apps already available, Ultimate Ear Trainer will train your ear to recognize all notes, and combinations of notes, both diatonic and chromatic, in relation to a tonal center, or key.

This extremely effective method is useful for musicians interested in all styles of music and at all levels of experience. These ear training exercises, if practiced with regularity, will improve your musical awareness, ability to identify chord qualities, harmonic progressions, and melodic movement.

No in-app purchases.
For iPhone, iPad, iPod touch


Exercises can be done either diatonically or chromatically.

The user can choose to practice within a single octave, or across a three octave range.

The user can choose to practice with random note groups, or chords (traids and seventh chords).

Main Features:

After you hear a cadence played in the key of C major, you will hear one or more notes. Try to identify the note played. If you identify the correct note, a green circle will appear, and if the note is incorrect, a red circle will appear.

Likewise with Chords – after hearing a cadence in C major, you will hear either a triad or seventh chord. Try to identify the root and quality of the chord. . If you identify the correct notes, a green circle will appear, and if the note is incorrect, a red circle will appear.

Terrific app

This is a terrific app, created by a great teacher and human being... Greg Burk. If you think you’re above ear training for any reason, I dare you to throw this thing into eight-note mode and nail all eight pitches across the keyboard.... It’s an incredibly versatile tool for everyone from the beginner who is starting out and wants to identify a single pitch, to the average professional, guaranteed to be challenged in the most addicting way by trying to identify highly dissonant clusters of 1 - 8 pitches across several octaves. Highly recommended for all!!


Tremendous app!

This is a tremendous app… It’s got various ways of making each exercise challenging. The exercises test you continually, with or without a constant reference to key center, which makes challenging (if you wish to set it this way). It’s truly a valuable resource to get good at detecting one or “multiple notes” at once… Super applicable to a real-life scenario for improvising, playing with others, etc. It is great because it reflects the Charlie Banacos methodology...!!


Simple and effective

This is the most challenging and effective ear training app I've found. It has different exercises that have kept me busy and have improved my aural skills quickly.
