All of these apps are available for Android devices. I haven’t been compensated for my reviews, I just want to share what apps are out there. See more categories under menu Android App Reviews.
Ear Trainer (free) ✰✰
The listening part of this app would be good to test someone with perfect pitch, but it expects you to hear a note and be able to identify it with no anchor notes. None of my current students would be able to do that 100% of the time. I do like that the reading quiz you can choose for you to see one note, or one measure at a time to identify the names of. I never could figure out how many you had to do before the quiz ended though, or a way to see results of the quiz.
Ear Training (free) ✰✰✰✰✰
This ear training app is pretty good. There are to difficulties you can choose, normal where it plays the note you play and then the new note, and hard where it just plays the note you have to play. You can also choose the time limit (1, 2, or 5 min), and mode (major, minor, dodecaphonic). It would definitely help students correlate what they here with where it is on the keyboard.
Interval Recognition- Ear Train (free) (purchase for ad free) ✰✰✰✰✰
This is such a great app for practicing identifying intervals. It has so many options that I won’t go into them, I’ll just do how it is set up when first opening the app. On the screen are a list of intervals, an interval will sound (you can choose ascending, descending, etc.) and then you must identify the correct interval. If you get wrong it will play a song that has that interval for the first notes. As I said before there are many options and ways to adjust what it quizes you on.
Musizzle Junior (free) ✰✰✰✰✰
I fun game for remembering what you hear of a song and then identifying it on puzzle pieces that you must put in order. Great idea, and you can find items and earn gold cups.
Perfect Ear 2 (free version) ✰✰✰✰✰
This app has all the same features as Perfect Ear, with more added on top. It includes: Interval comparison, Interval Identification, Scale Identification, Chord Identification, Chord Inversions, Interval Singing, Melodic Dictation, Rhythm Reading, Rhythm Dictation, Pitch Training, Scales Dictionary, Circle of Fifths, and Theory Articles. A very well written app, I really enjoyed the rhythm reading and dictation in this app. There are some paid upgrades you can get, but I felt like you get a lot with the free version.
MyEarTraining- Ear Training (free) ✰✰✰✰✰
One of my favorite ear training apps so far. Visually appealing, and lots of options. It will test you on intervals, chords, scales, melodies, or chord progressions. Within each group there are lots of options to choose from, as well as the ability to create your own quiz guidelines. Runs smoothly and gives you statistics that are easy to read.
Pitchimprover ear training (free) ✰✰✰✰✰
This is one of my favorite ear training apps. You can practice melodic dictation, interval recognition, perfect pitch, progressions, and chord types. You can choose what level you’d like to start with, as well as key. Within each section that you can work on the available keys or chords are highlighted so that you can see what answers are available. I highly recommend checking this app out.
