Can EarMaster be used by pre-school children?

The Interval comparison and Rhythm imitation exercises can be used without reading skills and without note reading skills. When you use the Rhythm imitation exercise, I recommend that you un-check the "Clap rhythm with metronome" option in the "Exercise settings" menu, because it can be difficult for a child to follow a metronome and start at the right time.

The rest of the exercise areas in EarMaster requires you to either read notes or to read letters, but with help from an adult, all the exercises can be used to teach the child notes, rhythms and to develop its aural skills.
