Ear Training Video on Identifying Chords

September 26th, 2009

My friend Marcus and I created an ear training video on identifying chords. It’s available at EarPractice, on Youtube, or by using the player below.

In the video I play a series of chords on the piano and after each one, pause for the viewer to identify the kind of chord (such as Major, minor, dominant-seventh) and the key (such as C, A, etc), before revealing the answer. This is a useful exercise and is something you can do with a friend too, once you get the idea.

    Great idea to make a Youtube video for ear training. Having good aural skills is a fundamental part of being a good musician!
    When your needs grow, have a look at the various ear training software available. There are several free ear trainers on the internet and some excellent commercial programs too.
