Chordelia – Seventh Chords Ear Training App for iPhone, iPod & iPad

Don’t know a Dominant 7th from a Major 7th?
Baffled by what a “Minor 7 flat 5” might be?
Looking for that special sauce to spice up your song writing and improvisation?

Chordelia: Seventh Heaven will teach you the skills you need.

Seventh Chords can add spice and sophistication to music – but all the different kinds can be confusing, and it can be hard to tell them apart in context. Most musicians never get past this stage, and limit their harmony skills by never moving beyond the core triads – or perhaps just learning the dominant seventh chord.

Chordelia: Seventh Heaven is the first dedicated tutor for seventh chords in the App Store and will teach you to hear all the important types of seventh chord easily and reliably – whether they’re played one note at a time or all together, and whichever inversion of the chord is used.

A strong appreciation of seventh chords is particularly important for jazz musicians, but will increase the versatility and creativity of any musician. They can help you:

  • Compose more innovative chord progressions
  • Add interest to the basic major/minor chords of an existing song
  • Introduce new flavors to your sound by knowing the effect different seventh notes can bring
  • Transcribe and improvise over jazz standards
  • Jam more easily with other players when they go beyond simple triads – or impress them when you do!

Chordelia: Seventh Heaven uses the same approach as our previous best-selling apps, RelativePitch and Chordelia: Triad Tutor, which thousands of musicians have already been using to improve their ears and understanding of music.

The app includes:

Training Mode: 10 unlockable lessons gradually teach you 7 types of seventh chord:
Dominant 7th, minor 7th, major 7th, half-diminished 7th (minor 7 flat 5), diminished 7th, augmented 7th (major 7 sharp 5), and minor major 7th.

Testing Mode: To check your progress and help you distinguish chords. By regularly testing yourself you can learn what to focus your training on and see the progress you’re making!

Custom Mode: Don’t worry about getting stuck on a lesson – Custom Mode lets you set up a tailor-made training and testing session to target any problem spots.

Gentle learning curve – start by comparing seventh chords with the triads taught in Chordelia: Triad Tutor.

✓ Background material on the theory of seventh chords and why each type sounds the way it does.

Explanations and illustrations of each chord type, to help you connect the theory with the sound and build your understanding.

✓ High quality piano sound samples and spoken chord labels so you can train just by listening.

If you’ve done previous ear training with RelativePitch or Chordelia: Triad Tutor you’ll be off to a flying start – but no prior ear training or music theory is necessary. Chordelia: Seventh Heaven starts from the fundamentals and will have you distinguishing different types of seventh chord in no time.

Isn’t it time you added the wide variety of seventh chord sounds to your musical skill set?

Ottima
“Pratica e funzionale. Comoda la funzione “”esercizio”” che suona da sola e dice che accordo suona”

Works Well
“Pretty good app [Would be nice if the root position chords could have different soprana factors played during tests.]”

I am enjoying this!
“I think I will learn a great deal in a fun and stimulating way. [I miss a way to see which notes are being played and which the exact chord is, not only which type. You see that in “”Nota”” and “”Guitar Toolkit””. I also wish for even more written music theory about the different 7th chords. Words don’t take much space so please add more info. Now I have to switch between the app and Wikipedia.]”

Great work.
I tried this and noticed a user need to have the knowledge of dicerning triad before using this one. So I go back to the triad one which is also a great app. I love this app. Great work!

Nice app
This app’s purpose is to teach you to distinguish between different seventh chords and it does the work better than other apps I tried. The price could be lower though.

Excellent
“This is worth every cent, just like all of their other ear training apps. Quality sound, simple interface, and most importantly it works. Hurry and do one for scales and modes people…”

Ideal next step
Was wondering what next after Triad Tutor…I’m glad to have this new app to teach seventh chords. The accompanying notes that are visible as you practice are an added bonus.

Taking chords to a whole different level!
“Having previously used Relative Pitch and Triad Tutor with great success to deepen my knowledge of the basics, I’m now starting to realize quite how much I still have to learn! As with their previous apps, Seventh Heaven is extremely user friendly and engaging. I particularly like how you have to ‘graduate’ to the harder lessons by scoring well on the tests, and how you can turn the arpeggios on and off – no way I can do without them yet, but certainly gives something to aim for! These guys have cracked the code on accessible, effective and enjoyable ear training apps. Hoping there are many more to come.”

It’s saying I got it wrong on a test when I’m sure I was right. Or maybe I just need to spend a bit more time in the training section! :-)
