Traditional aural training is heavily biased toward the perception and identification of pitch and rhythm. Pratt argues here that in these days of CDs and cassette recorders much of this area of the subject can be best worked on alone. He demonstrates how, by tailoring tasks to individual needs, every student can make some encouraging progress in these aspects of music. This new edition has been substantially revised to make it more accessible to younger students as well as imaginative teachers.
