EAR TRAINING - AURAL TESTS - AURAL EXERCISES - MUSIC TESTS


Below you will find links to over 40 different ear training scales tests.

Each of these ear training tests contains 10 questions and at the end of each test you will be given a mark and a percentage. Feel free to repeat each of the tests as many times as you wish.

In this beginner section, you will be tested on four different scales - major scale, natural minor scale, major pentatonic scale and minor pentatonic scale.
The questions are selected at random and can be in any key.

hint:
The major and minor scales are fairly easy to distinguish. Major has a 'happier' feel than minor. This is due to the flattened 3rd note in the minor scale.

The major pentatonic scale has an 'oriental' feel to it and it uses the notes - 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8(1). i.e. it is similar to a major scale but without the 4th and 7th notes. It can also be recognised as the opening to the songs - 'My girl' and 'Someone to watch over me'.

The minor pentatonic scale uses the notes - 1, b3, 4, 5, b7, 8(1). i.e. it is similar to a natural minor scale but without the 2nd and 6th notes. The scale descending sounds like the last line of 'What shall we do with the drunken sailor'.
