==Higher Lower Exercise==
Develop your skill to recognize different pitches.
Given 2 notes, can you identify whether the second note is higher or lower in pitch than the first note? You can make the exercise more difficult by restricting the range of the 2 notes played.
==Piano Pitch Training Exercise==
Given a single note, can you play it back? This exercise allows your to zoom in on the note, and will record how many notes it takes for you to correctly identify. Make this more difficult by setting a time interval between listening and playing.
==Piano Interval Training Exercise==
Being able to determine the distance between 2 notes is the key skill in playing the piano by ear.
The app will play 2 notes. You choose which interval it is and check your answer.
You can control the number of possible intervals the app plays, and thus focus on mastering the tricky ones.
You can change the base note to interval train in any key.
This is made easy as it associates an interval (e.g. Minor 2nd, Major 2nd, Minor 3rd, etc.) with a well known song. Select Song Clue to use a well known song as a learning aid to identify the intervals by ear.
