5.0 out of 5 stars Extensive and Challenging January 7, 2013
By Sachi
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc
First of all, this program is not for musical newbies. Once you get past the first few simple exercises, passing any exercise past that is reason to celebrate. You will be challenged, but in a good way. Music majors, students studying music theory, and those playing/jaming with others will find this software invaluable. Really, unless your patient mother is standing by a piano keyboard playing a bunch of boring notes so you can detect the difference between the two, this software pays for itself at the first lesson.

I play bass guitar and sing backup vocals for a four piece band. I've been playing with this crew for about two months now. I noticed that while I practice and play great by myself, I lost some of my sound and vibrancy playing with the rest of my crew. More practice wasn't doing it, so I purchased this software to help me get into harmony with my fellow band mates.

OK, so using this software is a bit like drinking from the fire hose. It's packed with over 2000 lessons, and they're not trivial. Plan on spending at least a couple of hundred hours going through all of this. The software covers four sections: Intervals, Chords, Rhythm, and Melodies. I have some particular difficulties with dictations, so I created my own custom exercises with this program. Also, their support was responsive to my questions.

What's really cool is, now, when I hear a killer riff on the radio, I can detect the key of the song, and better rememberize its components to compose my own interpretation. I've also composed some new jazz pieces, based upon what I've learned from EarMaster. When I play with my band, I now have better timing, and I'm consistently in tune. With this software, you will become a better musician.

5.0 out of 5 stars You get out what you put into it September 5, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
For everything it offers,this software is very reasonably priced - the exercises can be customized extensively, so you can start off at a level you are comfortable with and progress at your own pace, or zero in on areas you areas you want to get better at. The GUI itself is well done. You can work with single pitches, intervals, chords and rhythm.

For example, you can set EarMaster up to play a series of pitches (as few or as many as you want, in any key you want, in any mix of note values you want, and at any tempo you want), then you try and duplicate what you just heard by your choice of placing notes on the on screen staff, clicking the notes on the on screen keyboard, singing the notes into a microphone, or playing the notes on a connected midi keyboard. You can play the example as many times as you want before submitting your answer for evaluation. Pretty flexible and pretty cool.

It definitely will help you to develop a better sense of reading and playing rhythms, and how pitches relate to eachother if you work with it consistently.

If you are looking for extensive guidance here, you may be frustrated. To me this program is more about drills and exercises than "lessons" - It's a fantastic supplement to your musical studies, not a one stop solution. If you are looking for something that has similar drills but more in the way of "educational" features, then you should check out Pratica Musica. Pratica Musica is over double the cost of EarMaster, but it does contain more tutorial material. Even though Practica Musica has been around far longer than Earmaster, its interface hasn't changed much over the years - EarMaster has a much more intuitive GUI, in my opinion.

If you want to test EarMaster out before buying, there is a 7 day trial download available on the EarMaster website (as far as I can tell, there is no free trial for Practica Musica).

5.0 out of 5 stars At last! June 28, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
I am 74 years old and have been waiting for EarMaster for more than 60 years :-)

I have an odd ear. Maybe many people do. I can hear a note that is out of place in a song, but I never could play by ear. Pity.

I am training on interval and chord idenification now. The demo was OK, but the real software is VERY nice.

I AM going to change how my ear works - actually doesn't work - in this lifetime,

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Product October 8, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc
As a pentecostal church musician I was misplaced in my field because I used sheet music and played everything by the notes. I wasn't interested in learning to play by ear but knew I needed to. Earmaster provided an easy way for me to learn perfect pitch and recognize chords in songs. Now I can easily play any song by Ear. I highly recommend this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best ear training program available! April 23, 2013
By Matt R
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc
I love EarMaster. I have been using EarMaster 5 for many years now and have improved my ear greatly with it. I recently upgraded to EarMaster 6 and the improvements are mind blowing! Better graphics, better sounds, more lessons, sight singing etc.

I study at a music conservatory near NYC, and this program compliments my course work so nicely. It is nice to enjoy my first cup of coffee in the morning while doing my 15 minutes a day of EarMaster. If you put the time and effort into this program, it really will improve your musical ear!

2.0 out of 5 stars It's okay, but leaves a lot to be desired April 17, 2014
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc
When you update, it doesn't start you back where you were in the course, you have to start over or manually navigate to the lesson you want.

There is little to no instruction, just exercise after exercise.

The sounds are extremely artificial. It would be nice if they could include some real piano and guitar tracks.

There is no explanation about what order you should do the exercises in, and it doesn't give you any kind of strategy.

Each exercise is visually different, even down to the look of the buttons and the way you answer. This gives the whole program a lack of cohesion.

You can get a lot of the same practice on a cheap iphone app called Tenuto

One of the only halfway decent options out there. (but I'll quickly switch if something better comes along)

Seems to be updated regularly.

Gives you ample practice. Reinforces concepts through a ton of repetition.
