Description from the Publisher

Listening Ear Trainer helps you to improve your listening skills.

The goal is to acquire Absolute Pitch. But wait, it isn't easy! However, in our Singing Funnel Method, you get feedback how near you are to that goal. That is our software tells you to which precision you can remember sounds. To evaluate your sound-memory, you have to hum or sing the notes. Since Singing is an active exercise you get a handle that you can control and train. In the beginning your brain may remember only vaguely how to place your vocal cord-muscles to match a particular pitch. So in the beginning you may be more than two whole tones off and we still will give you credit for that. However, with each exercise we add additional notes and we also narrow the acceptable tolerance. Since we track your progress you can see, how far away you are from remembering a pitch to a precision of 50 cents. 50 cents is the precision required to which you must be able to differentiate pitches to assign a pitch to the correct note name.

That is you learn to better differentiate sounds by their pitches. And thus you learn to recognize musical notes by name.

Now we do not promise you that you will reach Absolute Pitch. You may give up at a certain point, since it needs too much discipline and time We understand that time is the most precious thing we have. And Absolute Pitch is not really necessary to be a good musician: Relative Pitch is far more useful to understand music. So, the first 24 lessons that guide you to a precision of 75 cents are free. In this way you see, how the Singing Funnel method works, and if you are willing to invest some more time to reach the necessary level of 50 cents.

Many of you will give up. However, we have a plea, even if you give up very early (minimum of five training days), please export the timeline statistics and send them to us. This helps us to make a statistic, which supports the idea that Absolute Pitch in most cases is not desirable for the necessary effort needed to gain it. Compare this to learning a foreign language: it takes many years to master a foreign language. But many of you do it anyway. However, to reach Absolute Pitch many will give up after a few weeks: the motivation and necessity to acquire Absolute Pitch is not given.
