Frequently Asked Questions
Why is ToneScholar more effective than other ear training methods?
Unlike the majority of ear training services and courses that rely on interval-based ear training, ToneScholar uses a method known as Functional Ear Training, which focuses on developing musical intuition instead of relying on memorization. By internalizing the unique harmonic functions of each note and chord, you will build a skillset usable in real musical settings.
Do I need to know any music theory?
No. Tonescholar will introduce and explain relevant music theory topics as they are needed.
Do I need to know how to read sheet music?
No. ToneScholar does not use any music notation or tablature. That said, your training will provide additional benefits if you plan to write or sight read sheet music.
How long will it take before I see results?
This will depend on your prior musical experience; however, most will see their skills improve within the first few hours. Each stage of the training builds upon prior stages, ensuring a constant challenge and new skill development with each step forward.
