[prMac.com] Egaa, Denmark - EarMaster ApS today is proud to announce the release of EarMaster 1.0, a brand new app for music theory, sight-singing, ear training and rhythm practice on iPad. EarMaster offers thousands of interactive exercises for all levels to learn to sight-read and sight-sing music, recognize intervals, chords, scales and melodies by ear, increase rhythm and pitch accuracy, learn to transcribe music by ear, and learn the core concepts of music theory. A very ambitious plan indeed, but also plotted by a massive app with a huge amount of content and features on tap: vocal input with instant feedback, MIDI input, support for solfege syllables, advanced jazz exercises, real-time rhythm tapping, and a lot more.
Most musicians aspire to improve their musical skills, but it requires a lot of practice - there's just no way around it. What more natural, then, than to use an app to improve our skills? The App Store already counts quite a few music learning apps, but nothing as comprehensive and feature-rich as EarMaster. Designed in close dialogue with leading music teachers and schools, it offers exercises, courses and workshops normally reserved to music school labs into a readily available app.
EarMaster also introduces new ways of learning music theory. Users can sing their answers into the app and get instant feedback on their pitch and rhythm accuracy, tap rhythms live on the screen of their iPad, practice ear training or sight-reading with a MIDI piano or other MIDI instruments, learn to sing with solfege syllables, check their stats to pinpoint areas that demand more training, do interactive dictations with all-time Jazz classics, and more.
EarMaster can be downloaded for free from the App Store and includes a 15-lesson introduction to music theory for beginners, as well as 2 customizable ear training exercises to learn to recognize and transcribe chords and intervals by ear. Available in-app purchases include a comprehensive music theory course for beginners, 14 general workshops for ear training, sight-singing practice and rhythm training, 9 Jazz workshops including rhythm lessons on Swing and singing exercises on Jazz classics ("After You've Gone", "The Sheik of Araby", "Ja-Da", etc.), and 12 customizable activities with hundreds of options and settings for tailor-made training sessions.
EarMaster is currently available in English, German, French, Spanish, Chinese (Simplified), and it is fully integrated into the EarMaster Cloud environment for music schools, which enables music students to complete EarMaster assignments on their iPad instead of their Mac or PC.
