Intervals Once you get the hang of intervals, it will be easier to transcribe songs, compose songs or tune your guitar. If you are a singer it will improve your ability to sing in tune and to phrase flawlessly. Whatever instrument you play, EarMaster will help you figure out the melody of a song based on the intervals: “Oh, thats just a perfect fourth followed by a minor third.” EarMaster Essential features two exercises that will help you do just that:
In the Interval Comparison exercise, EarMaster Essential will play two intervals; you identify which one is larger. This exercise does not require any knowledge about music theory and is therefore an excellent starting point for beginners.
For the Interval Identification exercise, EarMaster Essential plays a harmonic or melodic interval; you identify it by its name or transcribe the tones on the piano, guitar or notesheet.
Chords Recognizing chords and harmonies is an essential aspect of being able to interact while playing with other musicians. It is also an important aspect of being able to transcribe songs and to compose music. Being able to improvise and to play music by ear also requires knowledge in the functions and structures of chords. Combining harmonies and chords in music requires that you can hear and feel the quality of chords and that you are familiar with their function within a given key.
EarMaster Essential features the Chord Identification exercise in which EarMaster plays a harmonic or melodic chord; you identify it by its name or transcribe the tones on the piano, guitar or the notesheet.
Rhythms Modern music increasingly requires a musician to possess good rhythmic understanding. A good sense of rhythmic variations, the ability to feel a tempo, being able to grasp rhythmic figures and the ability to keep a tempo are important for any musician. It is not enough to be able to read or hear individual note values; you must also identify a rhythm as a series of rhythmic patterns.
In the Rhythm Reading exercise, EarMaster Essential will play a rhythm score. You will then clap the rhythm following the metronome. Clap your hands in front of the microphone, tap the rhythm on the space bar or play it on your MIDI instrument. This exercise is helpful in many ways; most notably it will improve your sight reading skills. You also develop your familiarity with rhythmical patterns and, very importantly, you will improve your sense of timing!
