Most musicians aspire to improve their musical skills, but it requires a lot of practice - there's just no way around it. What more natural, then, than to spend our spare time usefully with an app that improves our skills in a fun and efficient way? The App Store already counts quite a few music learning apps, but nothing as comprehensive and feature-rich as EarMaster. Designed in close dialogue with leading music teachers and schools, it offers top-grade exercises, courses and workshops normally reserved to music school labs into a readily available app.

"I think you are on to something great. I've used a few ear training apps and I find none as systematic and useful as this." - Kofi Ampaabeng, Piano and guitar student

EarMaster also introduces new ways of learning music theory. Users can sing their answers into the app and get instant feedback on their pitch and rhythm accuracy, tap rhythms live on the screen of their iPad, practice ear training or sight-reading with a MIDI piano or other MIDI instruments, learn to sing with solfege syllables, check their stats to pinpoint areas that demand more training, do interactive dictations with all-time Jazz classics, and more.
