It has been generally accepted that critical listening ability is essential for audio engineers. Compared to traditional training methods, recent training programs provide multiple trainees with fast acquisition of such listening ability through a systematic curriculum optimized for the required task. Moreover, due to the fast processing power of personal computers, an individual can access and experience these programs without hardware limitations. Considering the interests and growth of ear training in the audio and music communities, it is timely and important to have a chance to share and discuss the opinions from the experts about necessary features and methods that assist trainees in acquiring the critical listening ability with efficiency, both for personal and group training. For this purpose, the workshop invites panelists from all around the world, who will share their in-depth experience, know-hows, and insights in ear training. While the workshop locally aims to guide the attendees of the workshop to better understanding the concept of ear training and practical tips, it also globally aims to consider the importance of "listening" in the current video-oriented society.
