Read an Excerpt

There is a direct correlation between a student's ability to identify pitches and their musicality. This ear training series presents a method with which I have had great success in improving my students' abilities to identify pitches, and provides a way to take one more step on the journey toward master musicianship. The course of study presented in this book assumes that the reader has intermediate to advanced knowledge of music.

With any course of study questions arise, therefore Muse-eek presents a forum where relevant questions will be answered by the author. Please visit the publisher's website first and check the FAQ section for this book to see if your question has already been answered. If not, use the form on the website to e-mail your questions.

    As if 'One Note 'wasn't enough!

    My review of the ONE Note Series (May 9, 2003) applies here as well. If we accept the author's assumption that interval training is not real world and helpful, his proposal of just memorizing pitches against a progression is not supported by this series. Random pitches against a simple progress in the Key of C will do little to reinforce their Identification or to help with modulation. The format is equally presumptuous. Each book/CD in the series is devoted to ONE specific interval (3rds or 5ths in the books I have) in different (poorly-tuned) piano registers. And if that weren't enough, we're told that there are 11 CD's in the 'Beginning' series alone! (so $20/Cd X 11 CDs). Please! Couldn't this be better accomplised by a better thought out format? For example, if the author wanted to build on his concept of key modulation, couldn't he simply have one or two well organized CDs that have all intervals against different keys as an example of key modulation? Again, good concept, but tedious and unstructured format. I'm sure this is not what the author had in mind. A condensation and rework is definitely in order
