Rhythm Ear Training Series

Rhythm Ear Training Series

A 12 level Course providing a unique approach to developing your rhythm comprehension and rhythmic application to real music.

Ground Breaking New Ear Training Series Concentrating on Rhythm.

Rhythm is the backbone of music the world over, but unless you are studying percussion, it can be one of the most neglected areas of music education. That's why Muse-Eek has created the Rhythm Ear Training Series.. And like many of our educational products, this series is a lifelong companion, one that will keep you learning and growing the more you use it.

Oddly enough, people are frequently unaware that they have rhythm problems. Unless another musician or a teacher tells them, it's unlikely they will ever know.

Any and all of these problems can be symptoms of poor rhythmic skills. These can cause you not to perform well, get lost when playing music and not be connected in a meaningful way to the music you are listening to or playing.

Different Packages that are available for the Rhythm Ear Training Series

There are many purchase options for the Rhythm Ear Training Series. We recommend buying the Rhythm Ear Training Series in Bundles rather than individual Levels.

Doing Time with 32 Bars Volume Two

Doing Time with 32 Bars Volume Two

Doing Time with 32 Bars Volume Two..is a must own for any instrumentalist seeking to develop a strong sense of time.

This book is part of a series of books which are designed to teach a student:

  • How to develop a better internal sense of time.
  • Feel music on a more macro level.
  • Develop an innate sense of musical form.
  • Develop a more natural feel that breathes with the music.

"Feel Time" not "Count Time."

All this is accomplished by requiring the student to "feel time" not "count time." within a 32 bar Form. There are numerous exercises in the Doing Time with 32 Bars Volume Two that will help develop this new sense of time.

Audio Files

The audio files provides you with eight 8 minute tracks at different tempos in which the time is delineated every 4 bars, and with an extra hit every 32 bars to outline the 32 bar form. The student may then use the exercises presented in the book to gain control of their execution or improvise to gain control of their ideas using this bare minimum of time delineation.

  • The four bars hits through a 32 bar form is a great concept for working on standards. A drummer friend of mine and I (sax) have been using these files and it's really kicking our ass but each week we get better. If you want to strengthen your time these books will do it. K. Lechner
  • I've worked my way through all of these time books and my playing is in a completely new place now. I feel very confident when I play with others and thinking in larger chunks of time has totally changed my phrasing. Great Stuff! Q. Filipović
  • So much has changed since I've started these books I don't even now where to start. I guess the main thing is I have a deeper understanding of time (DUH!). I feel like working with these files for a few months is like 20 years of experience that you would get on the bandstand playing with heavy hitters. Do yourself a favor get these books! G. Borg.

Time Transformation

Time Transformation

Forward looking approach to improvisation.

This book is meant for the student who wants to move past the commonly used melodic, rhythmic and phrasing patterns and explore a new type of improvisation based on contemporary ideas of pitch class set improvisation, odd phrasing, and time level superimposition.

This book explores multiple aspects of contemporary music through highly targeted etudes. On the surface level it contains:

  • Sight Reading etudes in all keys centers
  • Etudes in 3/4, 4/4, 5/4, 6/4 and 7/4 time signatures

Each etude is a gateway to exploring:

  • Contemporary melodic concepts as expressed through hexatonic scales and trichord melodic construction.
  • Contemporary phrasing patterns crucial to new improvisation concepts.
  • Complex rhythmic ideas such as improvising on a different rhythmic levels.

Downloadable MP3 supply the key to advanced study with this book.

All etudes have corresponding MP3 files files which can be downloaded free of charge from the muse-eek.com website. These MP3s are the key to understanding the depth of these etudes.

The basic MP3s allow you to hear the tonal center as a background to facilitate an understanding of the melodic lines in a real musical situation.

Superimposed rhythmic levels are the key to a newer approach to improvisation.

The advanced MP3s present you with modal vamps that have a superimposed metronome clicks in another meter . This allows the student to play each etude in a superimposed rhythmic level.

An Example of this approach.

For instance you will hear a chord progression in 4/4 but a metronome click that is playing 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7 clicks per measure. This prompts you to read each etude as a time superimposition over the original vamp progression. This kind of study leads to mastery of the complex rhythmic soloing ideas commonly used in contemporary improvisation.

 

           
  • Digital Edition IBSN: 978-1-59489-793-1
  • Physical Edition IBSN: 978-1-59489-931-7
  • 620 pages with downloadable MP3s for additional applications.

 

 

 

           
  • I recommend this to advanced musicians. I've studied this book in private lessons with Mr. Arnold and since most of you haven't had that privilege, let me give you a major tip. Try playing all exercises over a minor chord vamp. This is so you hear the melodic lines that go in and out of the key center as well as the advanced phrasing of each line. The extra MP3s can be used to play along with the exercise or to read it on another rhythmic level. For instance let's say you playing an MP3 to plays a groove in 4/4 but then you hear a click that is outlining every 3 eighth notes as the new quarter note. You would then read through the exercise using the new quarter and you are effectively playing on a new rhythmic level. It sounds completely cool and boosts your rhythmic skills. F. Morán
  • I initially got this book to read in 3/4, 5/4 and 7/5 because there is so little literature out there that covers these time signatures. The MP3s are great because you can play grooves as you read through the exercises. That makes it more interesting and gives you insights into these modern melodies. H. Djurhuus
  • There is so little instruction out there about modern intervallic melodies! I'm thrilled that I found Time Transformation. G. De Luca.
  • Don't get this book if you are not a fanatic, 'cause you'll spend many years working with it. I'm a fanatic though :-) I emailed Mr. Arnold some questions about how to approach the exercises (It says all over the website and in the books that you can do this, so what the hell, I did) and he actually took the time to give me a practice regimen that is giving my brain a good workout. G. Claessen.

The Big Metronome

The Big Metronome

The Big Metronome...is a must own for any instrumentalist.

This book is part of a series of books which are designed to teach a student:

  • How to develop a better internal sense of time.
  • Feel music on a more macro level.
  • Develop an innate sense of musical form.
  • Develop a more natural feel that breathes with the music.

"Feel Time" not "Count Time."

All this is accomplished by requiring the student to "feel time" not "count time." The Big Metronome is filled with numerous exercises and comes with audio files to play along with each exercise.

Audio Files

Each audio track for The Big Metronome gives you a two bar count off and then a click every measure, two measures or four measures. As this pulse happens at wider and wider periods of time it requires the student to rely more and more on their own internal sense of time.


Additional Audio Files

Although The Big Metronome does contain 3 CDs worth of audio either the physical book or ebook could contain MP3s for all metronome markings with a click for either every measure, two measure and four measures. It is recommended that you also purchase the additional MP3 audio downloads that available. The most complete additional audio is the "Big Metronome Bundle 1" which contains over 45 hours of MP3s with every traditional metronome marking with every macro beat up to 8. This is a huge resource and highly recommended to get the most out of this book and time concept.

Please Note!

Over the years we have had many requests for additional audio files to cover different tempos and different time signatures so that students could use these files in multiple situations. We have therefore created additional digital downloads of other audio files that will aid you in your development.

The Big Metronome comes with 3 CDs but these MP3s give you many more possible combinations to strengthen your time. Each MP3 package gives you 37 audio tracks that are 10 minutes in length using the following metronome markings:

40,42,44,46,48,50,52,54,56,58,60,63,66,69,72,76,80,84,88,92,100,
104,108,112,116,120,126,132,138,144,152,168,176,184,192,200,208

These are the settings on a traditional metronome. Each download is giving you the equivalent of 5 Audio CDs worth of audio. We also offer bundles of these downloads at a reduced price. These bundles contain about 40 Audio CDs worth of files. Keep in mind that bundles are rather large files and the download could take a few minutes.
