Learn to figure out tunes... by playing a game!
Are you ready to take your first steps towards:
● Playing by ear,
● 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.
✓ 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).
