Take your favorite random simple tune and sing it. Just say that it's Mary Had a Little Lamb, really anything. Then start with one pitch up and change the key, keeping the mode the same. Keep doing that. Then go down. And up. We used to do this for fun as kids, and I'm sure it was something my music-teacher mom got us started on. I'm pretty sure it helped with some basic ear training, and could help anybody, at least for a start.

This is totally what I have done with many simple tunes. It stinks for those listening from a far but it's super helpful. I need to transpose many of them but I learned Deck the Halls, Star Spangled and Joy To The World. It's amazign when you're fingers start fallign where they are supposed to.

and trust their own ears


Many many thanks! While exploring the ToneScholar app, I came across an article discussing functional ear training. In your opinion, is this approach as effective as the one you recommended?
