GNU Solfege is a computer program written to help you practice ear training. GNU Solfege project can be useful when practicing the simple and mechanical exercises.

Here are some key features of "GNU Solfege":
Recognise melodic and harmonic intervals
Compare interval sizes
Sing the intervals the computer asks for
Identify chords
Sing chords
Remembering rhythmic patterns

The program is portable. Versions of Solfege has ran on recent releases of Debian, Redhat, Mandrake, SuSE, FreeBSD 4.2, MS Windows 95/98/2000/XP and MacOSX. It should be easy to make the program run on any unix like operating system, for example Solaris or BeOS, if you have gtk+, python and pygtk installed. The old MacOS will not work because gtk+ and pygtk is not ported to that OS.

GNU Solfege is free software, and is a part of the GNU Project.

pygtk >= 2.4
pygnome >= 2.0
Python 2.3
