Xentone is an ear training program uniquely designed to teach all the tones in the musical spectrum, not just those found on a piano keyboard.

The prefix XEN (pronounced "zen") comes from xeno, meaning "strange" or "foreign" in Greek. The term xenharmonic refers to music using pitches and intervals which sound unfamiliar and exotic to most Western listeners.

Such music is also called microtonal, because differences between xenharmonic pitches can exist at the micro scale, the subtlety of which challenges the limits of human perception. With Xentone you will become intimately familiar with the strange and exotic world of xenharmony and microtones.

This experience will not only strengthen your conventional aural skills, but will broaden your understanding of musical intonation and increase your appreciation for the expressive power of the pitch dimension in music.

Xentone will surely help you achieve mastery of pitch and interval recognition across the entire musical spectrum.
