A Brief Introduction to Ear Training

If you think that ear training is all about music appreciation, you’re absolutely wrong!  It’s one of the hardest skills to acquire when you’re a musician. Even the most professional instrumentalists and music experts are having a hard time in discerning a major key and a major key in a given song.

Ear training is mostly a skill that jazz players have even before they start playing instruments. Many musicians claim that ear training should be developed at an early age. This is not an innate skill, since nobody is born as an awesome guitarist right away.

Playing a musical instrument at an early age will enable you to distinguish a major from a minor key. It will also allow you to play your musical instrument in perfect pitch and harmony. This is the reason why a lot of parents nowadays are becoming aware of the significance of starting their kids early in playing a musical instrument. The skill of ear training is very crucial, especially if you want to play hard to do solos and progressions using the guitar.

The ease in the recognition of notes and chords will be very useful if you’re in a band. If you have the perfect pitch, and the rest of your band mates are clueless in ear training, they will be more likely unable to play their respective musical instruments in tune. This will result in discordant music, which people will find discordant, noisy, and chaotic.

The key to developing a perfect pitch is by starting to play an instrument early in life. If you have a kid interested with music, encourage him or her to play her choice of musical instrument and support them all the way in their chosen music genre. As they master playing and tuning their instruments, their proficiency in recognizing chords and tunes will be developed as well.

Ear training is a discerning skill that only a handful of musicians have. You don’t have to feel bad if you don’t have the perfect pitch or a good set of ears when listening to music. Music appreciation is different from ear training. But the mere fact, that you’re actually enjoying the music that you are listening to is a sign that you’re already starting the basic foundations of ear training.
