The objective of this study were (1) to develop application for basic chords aural skill practice; (2) to investigate the result of basic aural skill from the basic aural skill practice application, comparing with the criteria of 80 percentage; and (3) to investigate the satisfaction of the sample group after using the basic aural skill practice application. The sample group in the study included 60 first-year Western Music Major students in academic year 2018, studying in the 6 higher educational institutes. The research instruments consisted of (1) basic-chord aural skill practice application and (2) the survey of users’ satisfaction on the basic-chord aural skill practice application. The study was found that: (1) the development of the application for basic chord aural skill practice including contents were tutorial, skill practice, users’ score ranking, (2) the statistical result of basic-chord aural skill from using the application was found significantly higher than the 80 percentage criteria at .01 (mean value was 17.47, 87.35 percentage), and (3) the sample group’s satisfaction on using the application was found in the highest level = 4.63 (S.D. = 0.17). According to those results, this skill practice application is one of the methods to develop aural skill and to supplement into teaching music subjects.
