Melody Ear Training can help improve:

• Interval recognition
• Sense of pitch
• Transcription skills
• Improvising skills
• Self esteem

---

How to Play:

• Tap "play" to hear the melody
• To hear the melody again, tap "replay"
• Use the piano to play the melody yourself
• Play often to improve your score!

---

MIDI In – Plug in your MIDI keyboard to enhance the experience! (Core MIDI compatible)

MIDI Out – If you have another music app that can run in "background mode" and accepts virtual Core MIDI (such as NLog MIDI Synth) you can play Melody Ear Training using the sounds of that app.

---

Tips for the Beginners:

Start with "2 Notes" for the melody length, set the difficulty to "Diatonic", and choose the key of "C". Use the range control to set the keyboard to a small range such as "C, D" or "C, D, E".

Keep practicing, and as you progress you'll want to make the range larger.

---

Tips for the Pros:

Turn off "Feedback" and turn on "Autoplay" to play continuously without ever missing a beat. Crank up the tempo to see how fast you can go!

---

Melody Settings:

Length – 2 to 6 notes

Tempo – 60 to 320 BPM

Difficulty – Diatonic, Shuffle Keys, Chromatic

Keyboard Range – Starting at 2 notes in a major scale (ex. “C, D”) and up to 12 notes in a major scale (ex. “C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C, D, E, F, G”) with the ability to change octaves.

Feedback – Turn off to stop messages. Set to "Wrong" if you only want messages for incorrect melodies.

Autoplay – Turn on to always play the next melody immediately. Turn off if you want to play the keyboard freely between melodies.

Key Labels – Turn off to remove note names on white keys.

---

About the Difficulty Settings:

"Diatonic" uses notes from a major scale. This setting is recommended.

"Shuffle Keys" uses notes from a random key each time.

"Chromatic" mode is basically "extreme mode" where any combination of notes is possible. As a result, strange intervals like the Augmented 2nd (ex. F to G#) are possible.

---

About the Score:

Melody Ear Training is all about self progression. Tap the score to reset at any time. The game goes on forever and the music never ends!
