⇒ From the makers of RelativePitch (★★★★ featured app) ⇐

Learn to figure out tunes... by playing a game!

✪ “Easy for non-musicians to use, yet the stuff you learn is serious musical theory.” ✪ (User review, September 2010)

Are you ready to take your first steps towards:

● Playing by ear,

● Improvising,

● and understanding music better?

Step and a Half: First Steps is a free introductory course to teach you the vital skills you need - by playing a game! Here's how it works:

1. Listen to a tune

2. Select blocks one by one to recreate the tune you heard

3. Check your answer - and learn by correcting any mistakes

First Steps starts from the simplest possible exercise, and gradually teaches you the most commonly used building blocks for melodies. By the final level you'll be tackling fast 6-note melodies which use everything you've learned so far.

Including:

✓ 10 levels across 2 stages

✓ Gradual introduction of interval building blocks

✓ Melodies of varying speeds and lengths, randomly composed - for infinite replayability!

✓ Increasing difficulty from simple exercises to real tunes you hear in music

✓ High quality instrument sounds

Once you've taken these first steps, you can continue learning with Step and a Half: Melody Training - a ★★★★ rated app which takes your understanding of melodies to the next level.

You don't need any music theory to get started (though any musical education or ear training you've had will help).

Here's what users have been saying about Step and a Half: Melody Training so far:

✪ “Simple, intuitive controls! Just listen to the example and then drag and drop the intervals into the right place. Fun way of training intervals and your musical memory.” ✪

✪ “This is the perfect companion to RelativePitch app.” ✪

✪ “This app fills a void in the ear training genre (to my knowledge) that was desperately needed.” ✪

Step and a Half: First Steps is part of the Easy Ear Training family - we believe that ear training should be easy, fun and effective. Our first app, RelativePitch, is rated 4.5 stars from over 200 reviews and was featured by Apple on the App Store front page in 2009.

Adequate, but clumsy

:
This app is promising, but needs some work. The controls (dragging interval blocks into position) are clumsy. It's difficult to change a block (the removed block just floats loose instead of returning to its starting position) and there's no "snap" feature, so it's easy to miss a position. Also, using intervals to ear-train melodies is not the best approach, IMO; it's not as intuitive as solfege and requires much more mental activity. Hungary and the Kodaly folks have all but proven that solfege works best, but I guess the European system (of which this is clearly a product; it uses the unwieldy term "semitone" instead of the friendlier "half step") has yet to catch up.
