Last night, I started work on Auricle, the first ear training solution designed to be user-friendly for musicians. Though most of yesterday's development time involved picking a clever name and a logo, I did start working on a KeyboardModel that will provide the guts for entering answers. Right now, you can click on a key and hear a note through your default MIDI setup. The keyboard is expandable and even properly truncates keys on the end of the keyboard (if, for example, your keyboard ended on Bb). I may put up some sample applets in the future, but there's really not enough to see yet.

I picked the title, Auricle, because it's a single word, has URI in it, sounds like Oracle (so it can be easily tossed around in teacher meetings), and it has to do with ears. I considered Aural Skills Solution, but that probably wouldn't have gone over well in a conservative music industry.

This is a long-term project that I'm really just doing for myself. If I ever complete it, I would make it freely available initially, to allow for feedback and to gain a user base, before looking into any possibilities of licensing it to music schools.
