Star by intervals and after a time star with Chords? Study or listen a minutes by Day.
Or What are a suggestion for study or train the ear?
I have the “earmaster esential 5″ installed on my lapTop and I see all the application for IPad and different articles.
I only can listen a difference between intervals of second minor or major versus unison. My goal…I want to follow a song by chords progression. I play the Piano and read music.
Thanks for your question!
We’ve found that one of the biggest hurdles students typically hit with ear training is to dive in (e.g. practising interval exercises with a program like EarMaster or our own apps) without understanding the bigger picture and planning their training to meet their musical goals.
