The team behind SoundGym has announced ToneGym, a new ear-training web application that they say uses deep gamification and deliberate practice methods to enable musicians to train, learn, improve skills, and help each other on a journey to musical excellence.
Noam Gingold, SoundGym founder, told us, "The world of music theory education is a very serious one. I think that ToneGym adds new dimensions of fun, effectiveness, and social interaction to spice things up, and turn ear-training into an exciting experience that musicians love."
Here's the details direct from the company...
SoundGym reveals ToneGym, a new ear-training web application that uses deep gamification and deliberate practice methods to help musicians train, learn, improve skills, and unleash their full potential. Members can complete daily workouts, track their progress and analyze their training, learn music theory concepts, deepen their learning with interactive music theory tools, connect with other musicians, compete, and be part of the modern musician community.
ToneGym is a gym for the ears, where each member gets a personalized ear-training program and a daily workout that fits his musical skills. Training sessions are made of ear-training games and music theory exercises that help musicians to develop musical intuition. Playing multi-level musical games members will improve core skills such as interval detection, scale recognition, chord progression, sense of rhythm, and more.
