Hi guys,

I work since a while, when time and motivation allow me, on some interactive music theory learning tools. I have started this project as a collection of ugly looking prototypes, mainly for personal use. Then i though to polish them a bit and put them online. Some adjustments still need to be done of course.

As i lost a bit motivation the last time, i thought to give myself a little boost and share this with you. Any help, feedback, comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated !!! Maybe some ideas for future tools or missing options of the existing ones. Eventually even some bugs, but i hope not.

Three modules are existing by now: Ear Trainer, Key Trainer, Interval Trainer

Note: Similar tools are already existing online (musictheory.net and others), but i wanted to add a few more configuration options to start super easy and add step by step keys, intervals, etc. EarTraining for example i wanted to practice with different instruments, or only practice 2-3 intervals i have difficulties with, .. things like that.

The website is accessible with the very creative address laugh.gif

www.musiclearningtools.net

Hope you like it and find them useful. I'm curious about your thoughts ... Thanks !!

Andy

It looks great, much nicer than musictheory.net. One suggestion I do have is that on the ear trainer you start the intervals on different notes each time, as it is quite easy to hear the intervals in relation to each other when they always have the same root, when you should be hearing them as seperate intervals. Very good website though, it's really impressive. smile.gif

Andy as I told you before this is great thing you are doing !
I like it a lot, it is very useful and beneficial. Like you said, adding multiple instruments to choose from for ear training would be perfect. Perhaps you can program something that when interval is played, one instrument can play one while the other plays other note. That way you get sounds mixed up and it really develops ear nicely. You can do this also for 4 part harmonies with brass reeds and string sections !

Thank you Matt! Actually this can be archived in the configuration panel. On the right side "random root" you have the possibility to set a fixed root note of your choice or a random root note. Is this the option you suggested ?

By now i added only 2 instruments. I need to create the other(grey) audio files for each instrument and record them first.
To use two or more different instrument for each note is a great idea. Have not thought of this, but makes perfectly sense. Thanks you !

Looks and works great, very well done Andy!!!

One thing tho, I tried Ear Training and I got same interval/chord one after another, few times tho,
maybe you could fix that so that each next interval is different, good job. smile.gif

Great work so far, Andy! As Matt already suggested, I´d start with a different root. However, it would be better to have both options: same root, different root. wink.gif Keep up working!
