Ear training is often a frustrating experience, and programs that would be able to help increase aural discrimination without frustrating the user entirely would be really beneficial. The optimal ear training program, then, would ideally simulate an aural dictation. One of the big limiting factors on identification in an aural dictation is the number of times you get to hear the dictation material. Test situations always have a limited number of hearings, so the ideal ear training program would also limit the number of times you hear the example. Unfortunately, none of the software programs I have tried are able to do this. It would be great if dictations were like these programs, and you could hear the example as many times as required in order to be sure you got it right.
If you need to practice intervals beyond a perfect 12th, you ll have to look elsewhere. These intervals are also only presented to you harmonically; there is no random choice between harmonic and melodic intervals. It does play melodic intervals, but only after you ve gotten the question wrong two times.
MusicLab Harmony also includes spelling exercises, so you can practice notating the intervals by ear or by name. Practica Musica includes all the intervals in the octave, but no compound intervals. The levels are broken down into well grouped sections; however, there are only a few preset levels.
You also have the option of hearing the intervals either harmonically or melodically. After the interval is first played melodically, any in subsequent hearing you can choose to hear the interval harmonically or melodically with the click of a button.
Practica Musica also has a spelling exercise, and a playing exercise, where you enter the interval on the piano keyboard or guitar fretboard. Earmaster includes all intervals within two octaves; however, the compound intervals are found only as they appear in a diatonic scale. The minor intervals greater than then octave are only played descending, and the major intervals greater than an octave are only played ascending. You can enter your answer on the piano keyboard, guitar fretboard, the grand staff, or by clicking a button with the interval s name.
You will hear the interval you have selected, so you can guess until you find the interval that matches, making the exercise really easy. There is an interval comparison exercise in Earmaster, where you will distinguish whether an interval is bigger or smaller than another. Earmaster has different levels that drill melodic ascending, descending, and harmonic intervals separately. Auralia includes all the intervals up to a perfect You get practice with all intervals within two octaves.
In Auralia you can choose whether you hear your intervals harmonically or melodically ascending, descending or both. Unfortunately, you can t hear the intervals both harmonically and melodically in the same exercise. Auralia also has an interval comparison exercise, where you can distinguish which of two intervals is larger or smaller.
A great thing about the interval training in Auralia is the ability to customize which intervals you would like to be tested for.
This feature is perfect if you just want to practice certain intervals; for example, if you have trouble distinguishing M7, m7, M9 and m9, you could just select these four intervals, and drill them. Identification of inversions, however, is only required with the triads. Aural identifications of chords are of chords played in both open and closed positions. Spelling exercises also work on both closed and open spellings. Practica Musica includes identification of all triads except augmented, and all seventh chords.
Inversions of all triads and inversions of all sevenths except for third inversion are included. There are also exercises in playing and spelling chords. Earmaster offers identification of all triads and seventh chords, and all inversions.
Earmaster also has identification of added sixth chords and ninth chords. This is one area the program does well, and as in the other drills, you get to hear your selection.
Auralia also includes a section on jazz chords. The seventh chords are included in this section. Having seventh chords included with the jazz chords is a little bit frustrating if you don t need to know these other chords. However, you can customize the drill so that you only practice the sevenths you need to learn, and it is a great tool for anyone wanting to learn jazz chords. Scales: MusicLab does not include scales in either the Harmony or the Melody programs.
I think this is one of the downfalls of an otherwise great ear training program. Practica Musica includes drills on most of the traditional scales. It covers the major and all the minor natural, harmonic and melodic scales, as well as most of the church modes.
It does not include practice with the Locrian mode, and in the exercise working with the modes, does not include Aeolian natural minor or Ionian major modes. Earmaster has a comprehensive scale component.
It includes all the church modes, plus altered church modes, adding various raised and lowered scale degrees. Earmaster also includes both the pentatonic scales major and minor as well as the whole tone scale.
As in the other sections of this program, you can hear the selection you choose, making it an easy guessing game to match the question s sound to the answer s sound. Auralia has the most comprehensive scale section of all the programs I ve looked at.
It includes major and all the minor modes, all the church modes, as well as many jazz scales. The two pentatonic scales, the whole tone and the chromatic scales are also included. In the pre-defined levels the scales are introduced a couple at a time, making logical progressions, and you can customize which scales you would like to hear to make your own drill.
Rhythmic Dictation: MusicLab Melody includes short rhythmic dictation 2 bars. The rhythms get increasingly more complex, and the most advanced levels include eighth note triplet dictation. Both simple and compound meters are used. Practica Musica has the same rhythmic dictation as melodic beats. It includes eighth note triplet dictations, and both simple and compound meters.
Earmaster does not include rhythmic dictation. Instead, there is rhythmic imitation, sight rhythms, and discrimination between the notated rhythm and the rhythm being played.
The rhythms are up to six bars, and in the most advanced levels, quite difficult. Triplet eighths, sixteenths, and quarter notes are included. Chord numbers fol- is one step in the sequence Doh, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, ta, Si Doh it tells low this numerical system, chord I or i for minor tonalities being you nothing particular about its relationship to other pitches or its the tonic chord in major, minor or rnodal tonalities.

Since we have another system because I like the chromatic alterations and the sense of moving far naming notes, the alphabetic one, there is no need to change.
