Vancouver, Canada – Adium Software today is proud to announce the general availability of Ear Teacher, a Mac-based software application for music students of all ages and knowledge levels. Ear Teacher is the industry’s first completely integrated, interactive multimedia tool for learning music theory and practicing aural skills. The program uses an audiovisual teaching approach, with a myriad of examples and minimal text.
Ear Teacher’s structured course follows a custom curriculum designed by experienced music educators. It includes 9 grades of material on rhythm, melody, and harmony concepts. There are more than 450 lessons, interactive exercises, and tests. Statistics are collected and displayed for course progress, relative skill ability, and test marks, allowing students to effectively track their progress.
In addition to the structured course, Ear Teacher facilitates efficient daily practice using an “Intelligent Practice” feature, which automatically selects topics and questions based on student progress and abilities, allowing students to focus on their weaknesses. As an alternative, “Custom Practice” provides access to more than 25 specific ear training practice areas, including:
* Rhythm and Melody Imitation
* Sight Singing
* Interval Recognition and Singing
* Chord, Inversion, and Cadence Recognition
