EarMaster Pro Ear Training Software Review

Finding a software title that takes the pain and suffering out of learning a vital skill is always refreshing. For many people ear training classes are one of these painful yet necessary parts of learning to be a good musician. The EarMaster Pro version 5 software manages to provide an excellent series of ear training exercises while avoiding the common pitfalls of many music education software titles . While it is doubtful that any company could make aural training exercises fun, EarMaster comes quite close and still manages to be rich in features and variety of instruction.

Ear Training Lessons Of All Kinds

The EarMaster Pro software package includes lessons in the following areas:

  • Interval Comparison (which of two intervals is larger)

  • Interval Identification (identify an interval by pitch and notate it)

  • Interval Singing (singing or playing intervals)

  • Chord Identification (and transcription)

  • Chord Inversions (identification and transcription)

  • Chord Progressions (identify a sequence of chords)

  • Scale Identification (identify and transcribe)

  • Rhythm Reading (clapping hands to rhythms)

  • Rhythm Imitation (imitating clapped rhythms)

  • Rhythm Dictation (writing down played rhythms)

  • Rhythm Correction (fix incorrectly notated rhythms)

  • Melodic Dictation (transcribe melodies)


Each of the lesson segments has an almost endless variety of exercises for beginners through advanced musicians.

  • Just returning from an awesome family vacation to Chicago. Took the kids to see Blue Man Group at the Briar Street Theater. It was awesome (as they always are) and the kids loved it. If you are ever in Chicago (or Las Vegas, or Orlando, or Boston) and can squeeze it it might be worth it to go see it. The only downside for me at least is that I had pretty much already seen it all. While they have made some big changes since they first opened 17 years ago they still do the same core acts and songs that they have been doing since day one. If you have never seen them before, go for it! It's a fun, family safe theatrical performance and young kids love the grand finale. If however you have seen them before (even if it was just the rock tour) you won't leave with many new memories.
