This software was designed by a musician for
musicians and music students. It is an aid in the development of a good
"ear." In music school, another student is your aide, playing intervals
and chords on the piano for you to identify. This software takes the
place of that aide, tirelessly playing intervals and chords for you to
identify. With this instruction you learn to name the sounds you hear,
learn to hear better, and in the process become a better musician.
There are basically three parts to Ear Trainer: Intervals, Harmony and Keyboard. The Intervals dialog plays intervals, accepts your answer, and keeps track of your score. The Harmony dialog does the same thing, except with either 3, 4 or 5 note chords. The Keyboard is a mini-keyboard which enables you to hear what intervals and chords sound like.
