Kids Ear Training (by mDecks Music) has been designed for kids 9+ that are already studying a music instrument or in choir.
This is a huge app containing more than 200 levels and exercises, including:
Essential sound concepts such as: Low vs. High pitched. Acending/ descending/ constant pitch, etc. Fun elements recognition such as: animal sounds, instruments and instruments families (Brass, Woodwinds, Strings…) Movable Do (relative pitch) vs. Perfect pitch: Solfege, Kodaly Signs, Perfect Pitch by note name/ music notation (test if you can develop perfect pitch and learn relative pitch with ease)
All Intervals: Major, minor, Perfect, augmented, diminished Intervals are presented alone and in context All Triads: Major, minor, augmented, diminished. Triads are presented alone and in context
Basic music knowledge or teacher assistance may be required since theoretical concepts are not explained in detailed.

About the Mapping Tonal Harmony Workbooks
The volumes in the Mapping Tonal Harmony collection have been envisioned as auxiliary material in the study of Tonal Harmony. The main objective of these books is to provide the student, teachers, composers and/or songwriters with a tool that will aid them in hearing, analyzing, foreseeing, and composing harmonic progressions without struggle, in all keys alike.
