Continuing our current theme of improving one’s singing, here’s a link to Theta Music Trainer’s Vocal Match game. You’ll need a mic on your machine (or headphones/webcam with a mic). We’ve written about them before – they have a huge range of fun theory games to try. See also some of our previous Weekend Workout postings too.

Play the Fretboard Master Game to learn the notes on the fretboard. Just configure it for a four-string uke, with the strings G – C – E – A (or the appropriate tuning for your instrument), then choose your difficulty level; whether to name the note or find the note; & if you want to play a timed game.

As a Christmas treat, we offer you two festive fun quizzes for the price of one:

1) Guess from which songs do the ‘Christmases’ come (NB If you get enough questions right you’ll win a surprise that can make any song into a Christmas tune!). I managed 10/12, so see if you can better that.

2) And here’s Ukulele Hunt’s annual puzzler – the Ukulele Christmas Quiz 2012 - which I’m just about to enjoy doing. There are also links to previous year’s quizzes.

EarMaster is another interactive music theory site, with a useful page for learning how to recognise the interval (ie musical gap) between two notes. You can listen to ascending & descending intervals and play a daily quiz, Plus there is a long list of songs that start with each interval: choose the ones you know to make a customised reference chart as an aide-mémoire.

Here’s a free on-line ear trainer from Rick, who writes the I Was Doing All Right blog. There are full instructions on the page & it has several different customisable options for you to identify note intervals, chords & melodies, so you can make it as hard or easy as you wish.

You’ll need Java running (answer any prompts you receive on-screen & scroll down to the bottom of the page for troubleshooting if you encounter any problems).

Rick’s article also describes other hints & tips for ear training & gives his song mnemonics for learning intervals (you may want to use your own – it;s easier to pick tunes you know well if you use this method).

The ear trainer is also available for free download if you want to use it off-line.
