BEATO EAR TRAINING
In early 2021, Tomas partnered with prominent music educator and producer Rick Beato to extend his ear training program to young students. This was the first attempt at using the program for a younger audience. Beato is famous for his 2015 viral You Tube video of his youngest son, Dylan, identifying individual notes within complex chords after just one hearing. Since this time Beato has become arguably the most prominent music educator on social media. He is also CEO and co-founder of Nuryl, an education-based company that produces an eponymous “Baby Brain Training App”.
