Learn to identify musical sounds and hear music better! Sebastian is an ear training tutor that gradually increases problem difficulty and gives different types of problems as you improve. Save time with human teachers for more interesting things, like learning music and physical technique.
Requires 64-bit Mac OS X 10.7.3+
Sebastian was created by Dr. Jonathan Crosmer, a software engineer, composer, and violist, who worked with students in aural skills classes when he studied at the University of Nebraska---Lincoln.
Unlike some other programs, you don't perform 'drills', with gaps of difficulty between drills and distracting accuracy measurements. Sebastian gives you one problem at a time, progressing as you do, and holding back where you struggle. And it sneaks in review of problems you missed before. Sebastian is designed to take a challenging skill and make it fun for anyone to learn.
