Ear Training Explained® - Intervals is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 7 .
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Absolutely brilliant. Over the past few days, I have worked through three training series here on Groove 3 covering ear training. I did quite a bit of ear training with a teacher, a lot of years ago, and these videos really brought back a lot. This particular series unfortunately has an annoying buzz at the back of the audio, which distracts a bit, but the content is still pure gold. The benefits of ear training to anyone involved in any area of music are huge, although often overlooked, this is an area that helps everyone, no matter their angle. Transcribing, improvising, singing, intonation, tuning, jamming, being on pitch, composition, rhythm and all round general musicality are all improved greatly through the possession of a finely tuned ear. Can seem laborious to practice all these exercises, but the payoff is both subtle and strengthening. You can literally hear your own ability to pitch or identify a note or interval, or triad, or whatever, improve, as you work through the exercises in these series'. Star taken off below, for the buzz behind the audio of this particular series, but the content of all three series, and the benefits from participating in this kind of training, deserve ten stars, not five. All of these courses are well presented, relaxed delivery, easy to follow and well illustrated - by nature, this is not riveting material, but it is absolute rocket fuel for general musical ability.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from A good start on ear training I found the series to be a good first step on ear training. There's a consistent approach for all intervals. You still need to put in lots of time to internalize this, including finding your own reference tunes, but the series provides a useful structure.

Rated 2.0 out of 5 by from So so Actually I was expecting much more than what I got. I do not say that it is not useful but even in free applications I have found more exercises for improving myself.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Very nice. I have not finished this but I am about halfway through, and yet I can notice the difference. This course pretty much makes it easy to remember the intervals and drills you to them, which is very nice. I will be coming back soon to this one just to keep the knife sharp, so to speak.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from GREAT audio examples! The song examples for implanting the sound of intervals in your brain is second to none. The exercises have been very fun and I can see myself coming back to this course in the future. Can't wait to get to the other courses in the series!
