Functional Ear Trainer

Have you ever wanted to learn to transcribe or play music by ear? It is so important for a musician to know what they're hearing. A good musical ear helps when you are composing, improvising, transcribing melodies, or playing with others. Imagine you could understand music like when somebody is talking to you, you not only hear pleasant sounds, but you recognize words and their meaning. The app is based on Alain's ear training method to learn to recognize tones. It teaches you to distinguish between tones in the context of a particular musical key. You begin to recognize the role (or function) of each tone in this key, which is incredibly similar to its role in other keys of the same scale.
