i need an ear trainer that establishes a key or root then

plays a single tone that u guess what tone it is. then continues to play notes, not intervals, that you guess its tone. like if the root is established as C, and any B note was played, youd guess major 7 (id say leading tone but as far as i know those terms dont apply to all 12 tones).

i dont believe teoria has what im looking for. like i said im not looking for an interval test, i want a test that plays a note alone after establishing a key. like it plays a melody or chord progression in A minor then plays a random note, and you guess what the note is.

Why don't you just transcribe music? You can do it one note at a time if you want. That's essentially what you're trying to do, and it will be way more practical.

good-ear.com ("Note Location" exercise"

Teoria has dictations, which are a much better workout than just locating a note within a key. If you can identify identify intervals up to the 5th, you should do dictations.

Understandably.

That being said, the miles.be program is totally safe. Been using it for a year. The other program you can to download is from adobe. There's no risk there.

Although it does mean you can't use it on just any computer, has to be one you can do that with.

It's a really well-designed program. Worth the minor inconvenience.

tx, i appreciate the vouching for the miles program. i downloaded it. it looks like it does the job.

any ideas of things to do to get better at it than doing the test itself?

Sing. Practice singing scales. Sing with your instrument, then sing without it, up and down, checking yourself periodically.

This sort of ear training, in my experience consists of a lot of "wow, it doesn't feel like I'm making any progress" followed by, one day, "holy cow, this is easy!" So when they tell you that it's really important to do it often, they mean it. 5-10 minutes a day, every day that you can. Accept that it's a slow process.
