Contemporary Ear Training: Level Twoby Mark Harrison
Eartraining is a vital (and sometimes neglected) skill that enables musicians to "hear ahead" in their playing and writing. These unique, modern courses have been used by hundreds of students (from beginners to working professionals) at the acclaimed Grove School of Music in Los Angeles. These methods use solfège (the syllables Do, Re, Mi, etc.) to apply the techniques within a key-center based "relative-pitch" framework. Level One works on hearing and transcribing melodies, rhythms, intervals and bass lines and moves on to identify triads and simple progressions. Level Two covers hearing and transcribing triads and four-part chords. Moving around the circle of fifths, as well as the diatonic triad progressions used in today's pop styles. Both levels include vocal drills and exercises.
