SpartanApps Releases Ear Training Course by Musicopoulos
Sydney, Australia – Great musicians have one thing in common; they all have exceptional listening skills. Being born with the gift of Perfect Pitch isn’t the only key to musical greatness. The majority of the world’s best musicians have what is commonly referred to as Relative Pitch.
Musicopoulos has a mission: to develop amazing applications that enrich and enhance the musical experience of other musicians. Musicopoulos has already developed the leading music theory iOS application, Music Theory and Practice by Musicopoulos.
Music is an art that is designed to be heard. The natural progression for Musicopoulos was to develop an Ear Training product. Before we began development, we studied the market and asked some very important questions:
* Are there any requirements that the current market is failing to address?
* Do some Ear Training apps misguide and ill inform?
* Can Musicopoulos develop a superior product, and deliver a course that will really help musicians?
The answer to all these questions is yes.
Our fact-finding study opened our eyes to what other applications missed. There are some products claiming to be Ear Training applications, however these would be better named as Ear Testing. They offer little information or guidance. For the most part, the general theme amongst the current offerings of Ear Training apps is “listen to these notes and tell me what it is”. Well that just isn’t good enough. Ear Training products should do just that; train your ears, not test them.
Addressing this shortfall in the market is precisely what Musicopoulos has done. We have developed an Ear Training Course that will train you ears and guide you through the process.
Make no mistake; this is a course designed to help musicians learn to develop their listening skills, not a simple test for what you already know.
Ear Training Course by Musicopoulos is designed for all musicians, regardless of the instrument you play and your level of experience. The course material is structured, taking you from beginner to advanced levels.
Musicopoulos is fast becoming a recognised name for quality music courses for iOS devices. Ear Training Course is arguably the most comprehensive application for this subject, available exclusively to the iTunes Store.
What will you learn in this structured course?
* Recognise consonant from dissonant
* Identify intervals, and notes from chords
* Identify triads
* Melodic and harmonic recognition
The course is designed for students of any genre, from classical to jazz, rock and pop. The exercises are designed to develop your basic ear listening skills.
This application is structured to help musicians recognise, associate and accurately articulate what they hear. The techniques for Ear Training in this application relate to Relative Pitch and not Absolute Pitch or Perfect Pitch. Our techniques are time-tested aids, developed to increase your skills as a musician. These skills obtained in Ear Training Course by Musicopoulos will assist in composition, music production, transcribing intricate recorded solos and improvisation.
Good listening, and good luck.
