This workshop dives into the essential skills required for ear training. Our main focus will be triad inversions.

First, we’ll review the sound of major and minor chords. We’ll learn how to arpeggiate triads so we can hear the intervals that make up each chord. We’ll cover 2 chord, 3 chord, and 4 chord examples. Finally, we’ll go through song examples to train our ear in a progressive, step-by-step way.

By the end of this workshop, you’ll understand the process of how to approach ear training.

For software ear trainers, we recommend the following: Keyboard Relative Pitch, Note Relative Pitch, Intervals, Scales, Chords
