#1 Sādhakam—Carnatic Ear Trainer (android app)

Post by raguanu » 07 Jun 2017, 18:40

Dear Rasikas,

As we all know, ability to recognize and distinguish swarasthanas is a fundamental skill. We are happy to present our second Carnatic app Sādhakam—Carnatic Ear Trainer to help every student and rasika build their swara gyānam.

Sādhakam is an interactive app. It contains exercises that drill every swarasthanam in a systematic and progressive way. Exercises are in the form of quiz where the user has to listen to and identify one or more swarasthana. The app then shows the correct answer and keeps track of the user's score. This way the student can practice independently.

Exercises in this app are usually short, each one can be done in a matter of minutes. We hope this motivates students to practice more and can see improvements because they can practice on the go, during breaks or whenever they find a few minutes to spare.

This app is for everyone. Beginner students and rasikas who have had little or no formal lessons can use this app to build their swara gyanam from the ground up. Initially they may struggle to get the answers right in the exercises, but as the app shows the correct swarasthanam every time, they'll gradually learn to associate the sound with its swarasthanam and eventually get better scores. Intermediate and advanced students can use the app to identify the weaknesses in their swara gyānam and rectify them using focussed practice.

We strongly believe music teachers would love Sādhakam and encourage their students to try the app. As students can independently work with the app and get better at knowing swarams and swarasthanams, teachers can devote their time training them in artistic aspects of music without being dragged down by flaws in the students' swaram sense.

NOTE

* First 2 levels with 7 exercises are free. This covers variations of Ri Ga from Sa, and Dha Ni higher Sa from Pa.
* If you find the app is helping you to improve, you can unlock all the exercises with a subscription or a one time purchase.
* There are no ads even in the free version.

As always, support and encouragement from the carnatic community is the driving force for us to dedicate our time and efforts to make apps for carnatic music. Hope rasikas find our this effort useful and continue to support us.

Thank you,
Ananth Pattabi
