appliedharmony.com will help you to improve your relative pitch in an entertaining, anonymous and free way, using excerpts of popular music songs. With some effort and regular training harmonic structures will be internalized and you will recognize chords in any musical style.

If you are:

  • An amateur musician of any age who enjoys playing the songs that you like;
  • A music student of any style, specialty and level;
  • A music teacher or professional musician who never got to understand the usefulness of traditional harmony classes at the Conservatoire, because you didn’t realize how to adapt these lessons to your daily life;
  • A professional musician with a true vocation, trying to improve all the time and find new ideas and artists;
  • An analysis, harmony or ear training teacher eager to find new proven methods to aid the progress of his students;
  • Or a music theory researcher,

This is the tool you requiere!

Unregistered users can only access Level I exercises. To access Level II you need to be registered. Registration is free, you only need an email address.

As you check your progress, you can make things really interesting by using what you learn at these levels, with a variety that you probably did not imagine. But if you still want to work with really complex concepts, if you are a professional in harmony or a musician really passionate about the chords, you can access after some time to Pro and Master Pro exercises, where you will handle concepts and chords which are still under discussion in academia just now.

Now you have no excuse! You can improve your relative pitch using your effort and... appliedharmony.com ;-)

"Physical time is necessary to get that your relative pitch recognizes and assimilates more and more complex harmonic structures. Perseverance is the most important factor. It is not productive to be practicing four hours one day and then wasting two weeks without consciously exercising your ear. Internalize a routine, it is not necessary to practice for a prolonged period, but ideally a little each day. But if not possible, try not to be more than two days without training. In a few weeks, you will be able to check yourself and see how you have improved".
