How did this start?

How did this start?

In 2010, I discovered that my son Dylan had Perfect Pitch. As we explored this ability, I realized that by combining the use of nomenclature derived from music theory with aural recognition practice, I could dramatically improve his Relative Pitch abilities as well. These skills are the bedrock, essential tools for advanced fluency in improvisation and composition. I taught ear training and advanced music theory

As a college professor in the late 80's / early 90's, I used what were then (and still are) considered unorthodox methods toward an all-inclusive, unified ear training coupled with advanced theoretical knowledge.  For example, identifying Bitonal, Polytonal and Modal Voicings and their accompanying scales for improvisational use. 

This Beato Ear Training method is the only method building higher-order musical fluency by developing neural networks in both the receptive and active modes of aural apprehension, increasing understanding of the unique syntax and grammar of harmony.  In the process, each domain reinforces and lifts the other, toward a truly unified, higher order apprehension and appreciation of Music in all forms.

  • I have perfect pitch - will this help me?

    Yes! It will help you develop your relative pitch which is critical for harmonic identification and much more.

  • Will I be able to hear like Dylan?

    If you practice this enough to the point at which you can achieve a 100% score consistently on each lesson, you will be able to do what he does from a relative pitch point of view.

  • What devices can this be used on?

    For best results, use it on a desktop or laptop. It currently works on some smartphones and tablets, but full support will be added soon. 

  • Is this too difficult for me?

    No! It starts from the very beginning with the most basic form of ear training there is: Decide which note of two notes is higher.
    After that it goes into intervals, triads, then seventh chords, rhythm and more advanced topics.
