Ear Training Book Practice Order

Q: I'm interested in starting your ear training courses, but have problem deciding which book(s) to buy. Could you please help me sort out the following questions?

A: For the Ear Training Book Practice Order I should say that overall certain students will have specific problems and I might change this order slightly based on that. You should also be thinking about Rhythm Ear Training and devoting a few minutes to that each day. That said, a here is an outline of my total Ear Training course, which is is quite comprehensive, and will take several years to complete.

Start with:

Contextual Ear Training is the "one note" exercise in Fanatic's Guide to Ear Training and Sight Singing. This is the most important first step in understanding this ear training. Contextual Ear Training audio files allow you to do the ear training anywhere. You need your instrument to check correct answers with the Fanatic's Guide. If you want to work on your sight singing with notes on a staff if for instance, you were in a choir, then you definitely want the Fanatic's Guide to Ear Training and Sight Singing. Though in that case you might want to get both books.

MetroDrone is a multi-purpose tool for playing and singing. It works on ear training and your time simultaneously. It should be used whenever possible. You should also try to slow the tempo down so that you are feeling larger and larger beats of time.

25 Ear Training Tips Video Course gives you some extremely important tips on how to think about this ear training, how to improve the fastest way, and make the most of your practice time.

Once you get 50% correct answers in the One Note Ear Training (any level) you want to start into the Direct Application Ear Training: These books include:

I would also check in with the Instrumental Color Bundle to make sure you can identify notes when they are played by different instruments.

After you complete Contextual Ear Training go to:

After you have finished Ear Training One Note Complete you will move on to:

After you have completed one level of Key Note Recognition add in:

I mentioned Rhythm Ear Training Earlier which has 12 levels so that should be done but you should also work on reading rhythms through the Rhythm Series. For this I recommend in the following order and groups:

Again, it will take years to get through all these books, but "keep your eyes on the prize" as they say, and you will become a world class musician.

It is also recommended that you read Bruce Arnold's Blog at his artist site. It contains more discussion of the musical topics found in these FAQs as well as other subjects of interest. You will also find the "Music Education Genealogy Chart" located here which shows you the historic significance of the music education products found on the Muse Eek Publishing Company Website.
