The Earmaster 7 Pro, Product Overview
When it comes to singing, many vocal peculiarities will be excused or even appreciated by your audience. You can sing with a shrill, squeezed or a whining voice. You can push for high notes, mumble and screech. But there is one thing, you can’t turn into something appealing: If you sing out of tune, your performance sucks.
Besides working on your vocal technique, there’s no way around training your ears. It’s a certain route that forwards the signal from your ears to your brain and further to your vocal chords. If there’s something wrong at the beginning, you can have perfect vocal skills, but you still will sing off-key.
Earmaster – #1 in music education software
The danish company Earmaster has been around in the industry for over 20 years. Their goal is to provide simple and easy tools for improving musicians” ears and musicality. I’ve been a fan of their products since the very beginning and always found working with Earmaster not only very effective, but also a lot of fun.
Earmaster 7 Pro – Exciting and Playful
Their newest product, Earmaster 7 Professional is an enhancement of the earlier versions, comprising over 2.500 lessons, created by music teachers from renowned music schools. Starting with a Beginners Course, you can further join a General Workshop and a Jazz Workshop.
Besides a complete and thorough music theory course for absolute beginners, one of the best advantages of Earmaster 7 Pro is its interactivity. Working on your ear training you are asked to hear, sing, clap your hands and make notes.
Earmaster is a programme that puts music theory into action. No matter if you sing or play the guitar, your music will always benefit from training your ears and your musicality.
What will you learn?
From my experience, the key to better ears is training identifying intervals and chords. I don’t know how it exactly works in the brain, but it was amazing for me that, by repeating exercises over and over again, I was suddenly able to distinguish between a sixth and a fifth. Something I couldn’t do, when I first started with Earmaster.
Very useful are also the training sessions for rhythm and sight-reading.
Without any doubt, Earmaster 7 Pro is the real deal
In conclusion, I think the danish boys from Earmaster have done a great job. Available for a fair price of less than $60.00, this programme should be on every musicians’ computer.
As the name implies, you will have a tool to truly master your ears and your musicality. Regardless of your current musical level, Earmaster 7 Pro is suitable for beginners as well was for advanced students.
