Ear Training & Pitch Q & A

Q. What is ear training A. Piano Ear Training or Pitch Exercises are the terms used to describe the method of teaching and learning how to identify a note and sing in tune with the note or chord that is played.

Q. Why do I need to learn how to pitch a note to the music? If you want to learn to sing or play an instrument it is essential to be able to sing the correct notes in the right place (and at the right time!). Ideally a singer should be able to recognize the key being played and sing any one of the notes within the chord or scale without sounding sharp or flat (unless that is the effect you require for the song!!).

Q. My friend can do this and she hasn't had lessons - but I can't - why is this? Some people are born with an excellent 'ear' for music and are naturally talented, but most singers need to learn and practice the art before it becomes second nature.

Q. How can I tell if I am on pitch or not? Record yourself singing along to a song that you know well and listen back to your efforts - are the notes you sing melodic, are they exactly the same as the singers or do they sound harsh, sharp or flat? If the latter is the case then you are not singing 'on pitch'. You can also try recording yourself singing our online scales. If you are singing in key then the notes you sing will sound like the notes that are played.

Q. What is 'Perfect Pitch?' This is the term used to describe someone who can sing (or play) the notes (or chords) along with the music without reading the sheet music. It is also used to describe the ability to sing any note on request without hearing the note played by an instrument. Some people are born with this ability - others need to learn and practice to become competent.

Q. I can't Pitch - am I Tone Deaf? Unlikely - very few people are really 'Tone Deaf' which is the term used to describe someone who appears to lack the ability to differentiate between one note (or chord) from another - This is extremely rare! Most people who think they are 'Tone Deaf' just need to learn how to listen and practice their pitching skills. It takes some people longer than others but it CAN be learnt.

Q. How can I learn to pitch correctly? The key to recognizing notes, chords and intervals is repeated listening and singing back. Ideally you need a teacher to help you identify how you are progressing but there are exercises provided below for you to practice although you need an instrument to do them. Alternatively you can try the online Ear Training programs or download pitch recognition software listed below.

ALSO - you mention you like to make flash games. As a music teacher, I would love two types of games that you don't have. I would like a game that showed a music note on a music staff and the student has to type in

the letter name of that note - and more points are awarded for how fast they answer. The game could be done for Treble, Bass, Tenor, and Alto Clefs. Teaching children to read notes is very important. I would also love a game where students identify music instruments by looking at a picture of many instruments (like in an orchestra) and have to select whatever instrument the game chooses by clicking on the correct instrument.

This game teaches note reading. online ear training The skill of the musician is tested as notes are played on a music staff. Players must quickly type the correct letter to match the note shown on the staff.

Users say

The last game you sent is good. It seems it only uses notes on the lower half of the music staff. It would be more challenging if the notes appeared on the whole staff on all lines and spaces.

Also, my students love competition. Is there any way to force the player to choose faster - and if they don't pick fast enough, they lose points? Also - I know this is a hard thing to do in flash, but can you make a game that keeps track of the highest score?

The flash you sent me wasn't really what I was looking for. I would like a game where a student sees the note on a music staff, and has to type the correct musical letter - or choose the correct musical letter from a list. This would increase their music reading ability.

2nd, I would like a game where a student would see the musical letter (A, B, C, D, E, F, or G - A#, Bb, etc.) and have to play it on a keyboard.
