This week, I’ve directed several students to www.musictheory.net . Ricci Adams, the site’s creator, has done an excellent job at preparing tutorials to musicians. The Flash presentation on rhythm has helped at least one of my students. My favourite part of the site is the Trainer section. Where was this when I was studying? The Interval Ear Trainer is set up like a game. The Trainer will play an interval (the distance between two notes) and the student must identify what the interval is. The Trainer even keeps score. The Scale Ear Trainer and the Chord Ear Trainer are set up similarly.
The Note, Key, Interval and Triad Trainers are like online flashcards.
It’s a great way for students to practice their ear training and note reading when they don’t have a study partner.
There is even a staff paper generator for those who want to try their hand at composing.
Check it out.
