Finding “Your Note” is a simple exercise that will help lay the foundation for singing in tune, learning relative pitch, and even sight-singing. Try it out!
Ear training is the process of developing your ear for music. If you love music, and especially if you play a musical instrument or produce music, ear training can help you to develop a musical ear so that you:
- Hear more in the music you listen to,
- Understand what you’re hearing, and
- Have more creative freedom and control to express yourself through music.
People often assume that to have a good ear for music—meaning to play by ear, to write songs, to have perfect pitch, and so on—you need to be born with the “gift” of music. This is not true!
Musicality is learnable, and even the most impressive and natural-seeming skills can be learned through dedicated ear training exercises.
