You might wonder why an application named Music Theory Tutor has so much ear training. It’s kind of a funny story.
When we started designing the software in 2010, we wanted to build a better ear training application, one that didn’t just have practice drills but actually taught skills necessary to develop a sense of rhythm, pitch, and harmony. So, we added some music theory lessons, and then a few more, and so on. Eventually we ended up with hundreds of lessons, covering all the important music theory topics… and thus Music Theory Tutor was born.
