comment What are the most effective ear training methods ?
Raskolnikov: Can't think of anything off hand. Honestly, with the method I think of for this I software might be more of a hindrance than a help. I recommend the three volumes of Dannhauser starting with volume 1 (amazon.com/Solfege-Solf%C3%A8ges-Book-1-Dannhauser/dp/…). Remember, don't play the tunes before singing them. Just get the root note of the scale from the piano (as infrequently as possible) and find all the notes based off of that.

As a side note, my method of using voting SE sites is not to down vote something unless it is wrong (as a matter of fact) or is just poorly written. Since this is neither, I personally wouldn't down vote this answer.
