This paper focuses on audio education for non-technical students, meaning students who will not pursue a career in audio engineering. Ear training accompanied with lectures is intended to promote careful listening to sounds, and learning about the factors that control audio quality through audio experiences. A Web-based training system implemented by the author for in-classroom simultaneous and individual ear training was used. Quantitative analysis of student learning scores with and without ear training revealed no significant difference. However, the results of questionnaires at the end of the course revealed that the majority of students evaluated positively both ear training and use of the Web-based training system.
