You’ve made it to the end of this series on relative pitch. Up until now we’ve covered a lot of ground. We’ve compared relative pitch and perfect pitch, and we’ve talked about the pros and cons of interval based ear training, tonality based ear training and scale degrees.

This forms the foundation that you need to start developing relative pitch.

Successfully developing relative pitch involves following a step-by-step sequence. It starts with the basics – learning to recognise each scale degree – then builds from there. You’ll then learn to recognise groups of notes in melodies and chords, and eventually add advanced material such as chromatically altered scale degrees and modulations between keys.

The secret to succeeding with ear training is to focus on each step in order. If you know exactly which step is coming next (for you), and you use targeted exercises to master that step you can progress quickly and easily down the road to relative pitch.

If you’d like to progress down that path quickly, the best way to do it is with Ear Training HQ’s training materials. With our All Access Pass you can have complete access to all of our courses. You can try the All Access Pass out for 3 weeks for just $1, so there’s no reason at all not to try it out for yourself and see what it’s like to train your ears the right way.
