Music Trainer has 7 testing groups. Each one of these groups
comes with a number of built in ear training tests. You can
customize each one of these tests, or add your own tests.
The 7 test groups are:
You can add new tests to each one of these groups, or edit the
exiting test on the customize screen. Music Trainer uses
the concept of 'Sound Items' for its tests. Each test consists
of a number of 'Test Items' These are going to be the items that you
have to identify for each test. This 'Test Item' can be a scale, a
chord, an interval or any number of sound items played in a sequence
depending on the test. It could simply be one note.
- Notes over chords
- Perfect Pitch
You can easily program Music Trainer to play the 'Sound Items'
that you create for your customized tests. A 'Sound Item' can play
from 1 to 7 notes simultaneously (a chord) . The 'Test Item' can
play up to 12 sound items in a row. You can program chord
progressions, single note lines, intervals, etc. You can also name
each Test and 'Test Item' with a name that makes sense to you.
This is a great tool for instructors that want tailor
tests for their students.
The built in tests are very good and you may never need to
customize tests, but the options are available. You can always revert back to the default set of tests if you
don't like the customizations that you have made.
