mDecks Ear Training 1 for iPad
Can you hear and identify all intervals, triads and sevenths? Can you find the right one in a group of up to six different ones?
Can you identify them in context, embedded in the background music?
mDecks Ear Training will develop you musical ear by using a different and new approach. You will learn how a musical element sounds (alone and in context) by searching for them.
mDecks Ear Training 1 focuses on Intervals, Triads and Sevenths
A set of circles containing musical elements in a class (interval, triad, rhythm, melody, etc) will be shown on the screen. You will have to listen to them and decide which one contains (or creates) the requested musical element.
Elements will be presented alone and in context: In advanced stages you will have to find the circle that makes the requested element when combined with the background music!
mDecks Ear Training will guide your study step by step, increasing the level’s difficulty as your hearing improves from Beginner to Master level.
There are 6 Stages, each stage contains 6 Levels: Listen&Learn, Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Expert, Master, and each level contains a set of exercises that you will need to conquer to access the next one. More than 120 sets of exercises!
In each exercises the app detects how well you are performing to guide you through the entire set of levels and stages. Once you’ve finished the entire app you will be a Master at recognizing intervals, triads and sevenths
