Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Theta Music Trainer is a system for ear training and music theory based around a set of online games. It is meant to inject an element of fun and excitement into a musician's daily ear training routine. Rather than simply doing the same drills over and over, the training is based around a set of 15 different games, each designed to strengthen a particular area of musicianship. For example, one game helps the student become familiar with the tones of major and minor scales, while another game trains the student to recognize different types of chords. During a workout session, players move quickly from one game to the next. The variety and pacing of the games are designed to hold the interest and attention of students as they practice a wide range of musical skills.
Trainer provides musicians of all levels with a deeper understanding of music and a stronger ability to play music by ear. The music training games are classified into ten categories: Sound, Pitch, Scales, Intervals, Melody, Chords, Progressions, Rhythm, Notation and Theory. Each game is divided into twenty levels of difficulty. Games start with simple problems and gradually increase in complexity. Subscribers may enroll in a 30-day course which breaks the training into daily workouts of about 10-15 minutes, providing a balanced mix of ear training and music theory practice. Game scores are recorded and players can keep track of their results and progress.
