Ear Training One Note Completeby Bruce E. Arnold
This edition comes with no CDs. You must purchase either the 3 associated CDs separately or digitally download the CDs from an on-line vendor. Otherwise this book is exactly the same as the book/CD edition. Just as an artist must know every color in order to create a beautiful painting, a musician must know and hear all the notes of the musical "palette" in order to create good music. This Ear Training method has been developed to teach the student how to hear the way musical sounds are organized within a key. With proper application, the student will be able to instantly recognize: . Which notes other musicians are playing. . What key a chord progression is in. . What the notes in a given melody are. These are all invaluable tools for both playing and composing music. This Complete Method is recommended for students who have little or no music training or an advanced musician that needs to develop their aural recognition skills. This book contains all the information needed to work with the Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced CDs which as mentioned are avaiable separately. These CDs are entitled: Ear Training One Note Beginning Ear Training One Note Intermediate Ear Training One Note Advanced These 3 CDs are also available in MP3 format. Both formats can be purchased from various on-line vendors. A list of recommended vendors can be found on the muse-eek.com website. By studying the method presented within this book and speeding up your recognition skills by listening to the 3 CDs a student will find that their whole preception of hearing music will change. This book is a required text at New York University and Princeton University, and is recommended for beginning music students ages 13 and up.

I noticed that some people seem to be confused about why the CDs that accompany this book are all in one key. I took this excerpt from the FAQs for Fanatic's Guide and Ear Training One Note Complete from the publishers website. 'You will definitely want to play vamps in different keys. You will want to sing in different keys too. But remember as far as the ear training goes - ALL KEYS ARE THE SAME. The 3rd in C major will sound exactly like the 3rd in F# major. The 3rd always sounds like the 3rd. You want to do other keys mostly to build up your music theory ability to know for example what the b6th in Gb major is quickly. That is where I recommend using the Music Theory books so you can speed up your music theory knowledge so it's ready when your ears are.' I have found myself that when I started there were things that didn't make sense to me. Through contacting Mr. Arnold and reading the FAQs from hundreds of students I have learned many things. Two of the most important are don't judge something until you truly understand it and perception grows over time mostly through learning and studying. The most important thing I've learned from my interactions with Mr. Arnold is that understanding how I learn and controlling my mind's tendencies will be the real challenge to learning anything including ear training.
