Can Earmaster help with bass clef reading

Postby ZeroZero » Apr 22, 2017 12:55 pm

I came from sax to piano. I can play and improvise. I can read treble clef OK. My bass clef reading is woefully behind. I end up hunting and pecking.

Can Earmaster 6.2 help with this? Can I customize a lesson or something.

thank you all

Hi,

Good question. There is not an exercise that lets you practice the clefs in relation to each other. But you can change the clef easily inside the exercise, by going to exercise settings->Clef. This means that you can do an exercise, and then change the clef to see how the same question and answer would be on that other clef.

I hope this will help you train this.

Thank you Quentin,

I think a lot of people can read a bit but need practice. Therefore I suggest for Earmaster 7
a Daily Sight Reading Mode:

1] Can be set to both clefs, treble or bass (consider alto)

2] Can set the number of bars (default 4) with pick up bar as required.

3] Can confine the note generation to intervals / different scales

4] Generates a MIDI tune and accompaniment

5] Marks the user playback for precision and accuracy (option to confine marking to either bass or treble)

6] Can adjust the tempo

Just like you eat breakfast, each day you can run a few bars of sightreading of the appropriate level (set by user) in front of your eyes.

How CAN this be bad for a Musician?

Please Version 7!
