Technical ear training is a method to improve the ability to focus on a speci?c sound attribute and to communicate using the vocabularies and units shared in Audio Engineering. In designing the successful course in a sound engineers’ educational institution, it is essential to have a gradual increase in the task dif?culty. In this e-Brief, the authors investigated creating a predictive model of objective dif?culty for a given music excerpt when it is used in a peak identi?cation task of technical ear training. The models consisting of six or seven acoustic features, including statistics on attack transients and power spectrum, showed overall better results.
