SoundGym continues to improve on its solutions for musicians, producers, and engineers. Their latest offering, ToneGym Melody Playground is a useful tool to help you in your understanding of melodies. This update brings a melody trainer, a melody game, and a weekly transcription contest to test your skill level as you advance. There are 4 difficulty levels available each aimed at increasing your melodic understanding in varying degrees. No matter your level, there is a chance to increase your knowledge and melodic intuition, as the training uses single notes, intervals, and chords, allowing you to work in any of the diatonic modes you prefer.
How to get started with ToneGym Melody Playground
All the features of Melody Playground are available with the basic free ToneGym membership. So you can log in and begin flexing your melodic muscles right away, without a subscriber fee. However, if you wish to access additional content such as the entire training program, with 12 ear-training games, personalized musical workouts, focused training, stats, performance tracking, and much more, this is only unlocked with a Pro membership. Once you’ve created an account, simply select your fields of interest and your journey into ToneGym’s curriculum begins immediately.
In many cases, when diving into online music theory resources, we can be overwhelmed with information, and not all of it is completely relevant to the music-making process. ToneGym’s approach seems far more focussed on the practical side of aural training, with a simple system that works to your particular level of understanding. With ToneGym Melody Playground, you have a useful tool for upskilling yourself melodically, while the system tracks your performance in your profile with each exercise. This way you can keep improving and the content is varied enough to prevent you from stagnating or falling into comfort zones.
