There are lots of software programs which can help you transcribe music and practice playing music by ear. Some are desktop software packages (Mac/PC) and others are apps for mobile devices (iPhone, Android, etc.)

The main features they offer which help with transcription are:

  • Slow down music (so you can play along or more easily hear what’s going on)
  • Change the key (transpose up or down)
  • Automatically identify notes and chords (helpful if you’re struggling)
