EAR TRAINING - AURAL TESTS - AURAL EXERCISES - MUSIC TESTS


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

Each of these 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 4 different triads - major, minor, augmented and diminished. The ear training questions are selected at random and can be in any key.

hint:
To help your ear training development, listen to the triads below.
To recognise Major and Minor triads you can use the songs given. To recognise Augmented and Diminished triads use the following ear training method:

The first 2 notes of a Major and Augmented triad are the same, so if we hear, for example, the notes C and E, we would be expecting a G to complete the Major triad. If we get the G then we know it is Major. If we do not get a G then the triad must be Augmented.

In the same way, the first 2 notes of Minor and Diminished triads are the same. After the first 2 notes have been played we will be expecting a 5th to complete the Minor triad. If we don't get this then the triad must be Diminished.
