So I've taken a basic musicmanship course and starting to read the extras in the music theory lesson here on UG. So I figured the next thing for me to learn is to train my ear.

So during a tutoring session for the course, this tutor gave me this awesome site.

http://musictheory.net/

Has an ear interval trainer, scale, chord, etc. I'm working on the interval trainer, but I'm having trouble making any progress. So I'm wondering how you guys learned to train your ear?

Thxs for any help.

Practice, practice, practice. Even when you're not around your instrument, as long as you're familiar with scales, you can go over intervals and chords in your head.

Wish I knew of that site earlier. I just started transcribing stuff I couldn't find tabs for. One thing to remember, once you start training your ear you have to keep regularly practicing using your ear things, because like any other skill, it can diminish without use.

that. and playing in a symphonic band or concert band helps a lot too. because that way you can see one part but then listen to the overall sound and see how the intervals work together.

yeah, but consciously trying to develop it will make it come a lot faster.
