Once you’ve figured out what suits you to get it right it becomes much easier, you’ve just proved that; great stuff and excellent progress

I am close to 2 months into the ear training, doing about 30 mins first thing every morning.

I first focused on doing the 4th and 5th intervals together until I scored 100%. That was followed by doing the 2nd and 3rd together till 100% score.

On moving on to doing all 4 intervals together (2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th) I performed surprisingly poorly - scoring around 50%. 

After a few weeks, I improved my score to a steady 70%. I only have time to go up to a score of 20 points as I repeat the same interval a number of times before deciding what it is.
 
This morning I scored 81% for 20 correct, a step up from my usual 70, which is exciting.

I find that I make more mistakes early on in each session and get really good toward the end.

Plan is to continue with this until I get 100% for all 4. I also want to reduce the number of times that I have to listen to each interval before moving on.

I have to concentrate fully on the notes being played. If I get lazy my performance drops off quickly.

I am singing the songs for each interval and also singing do, re, me, fa, so... to help me pick the intervals.  I don't think there is a quick fix ito method other than building your ability to recognise and remember the intervals.

I am really happy with the progress, it gives me quite a bit of a kick  ;D

Sounds great Barend. I lost my focus over the past few weeks so haven't done much of anything. Reading about your progress is inspiring me to get back into this App.

Hi Mari
How are you progressing?

I am now at the point where I get in the 90's, still needs a lot of concentration but going faster. Nice to be able to distinguish the notes more clearly. The 3rd and 4th still trips me up... especially when the notes are high.

Happy practising your side!
