Auralia 5 from Rising Software is a comprehensive ear training software which employs real music to teach musicians the skills to imitate, compare, sing, identify, and transcribe various musical elements. It offers students of all ages and abilities a drill-based approach to contextual learning, and a fun, engaging way to practice, while giving teachers powerful tools to create customized syllabuses, set tasks and assignments, run exams, and track and assess the progress of their students.
Auralia 5 comes with 43 topics divided into five groups: Intervals & Scales, Chords, Rhythm, Harmony & Form, and Pitch & Melody. Each topic has an accompanying lesson module where students can learn to identify chords in their favorite songs, transcribe solos and improve their improvising, play by ear, sight sing with ease, and more. Teachers can use the included library of audio recordings, and common-repertoire notations, or import their own content, to create high-quality questions for their students. The clean and elegant interface is designed to provide students with feedback while keeping them focused on the essential ear training tasks.
The software provides carefully sequenced levels that gradually introduce students to more difficult drills, allowing them to learn at their own pace. It also records student's activities such as what and when they practiced, how long they practiced, and their scores. Summary and detailed reports showing student progress can be easily generated and reviewed by both teacher and student, with no grading to be done.
