What is Practice Perfect?

The Practice Perfect Applied Jazz Ear Training Series of books provides multiple ways for a musician to hone their ear training skills through exercises that use real music. That is, these exercises place a musician in a real live music situation simulating the contexts most associated with performance.

The Applied Jazz Ear Training Series includes the following kinds of exercises:

  • Examples of common chord progressions found in the jazz lexicon with Piano, Bass and Drums. Both interpreted and semi-strict interpretations are included.
  • Exercises where you only hear the bass playing the chord changes while you are prompted to sing notes within the key center.
  • Just the piano playing the changes, with or without a key center drone and then prompted to sing notes within the key center.

This course is structured for beginning to advanced students. The Minor Blues progressions in this course vary from simple to highly complex. The exercises for each example are also geared toward beginning and advanced students.

Additional Materials found in the Applied Jazz Ear Training Course

This course contains the exercises above as well as:

  • A video for each chord progression showing each measure as it goes by.
  • Guitar plays progressions at 3 different tempos.

What people are saying:

If you understand Mr. Arnold’s concept of hearing notes within a key center then you can jump right into this ear training. I know they don’t recommend it but I get it… Hear all 12 notes in the key center. Simple idea with a huge amount of power. These applied ET courses are killing. I’ve been working on Applied ET V1 for a few weeks and already notice a distinct difference. W. Grant

I’ve been slugging it out with this ear training for two years. Honestly I would have quit about 3 times but I keep in touch with Mr. Arnold and he convinced me that my slow progress was natural given my situation. Anyway I’m up to 70% on Ear Training One Note now and started this new Applied Ear Training courses Bruce recommended I wait a bit on these jazz applied ET and concentrate on the other ten volumes as a prerequisite. I have no history of playing or listening to jazz though that is my final goal. I really appreciate Bruce’s guidance. He a straight shooter who doesn’t sugar coat the situation and that has helped me gain confidence and an understanding of where I am in my music studies. H. Linderman

These new Jazz Ear Training courses are just what I needed. I’ve been studying and playing jazz for years but my ear has always lagged behind. These new courses really help me to hear all the changes in one key center. Nothing like it out there so really appreciate Muse Eek blazing a new course in ear training education. J. Novack

Minor keys have always been a problem for me. I always want to hear them as the relative minor. The previous Practice Perfect courses concentrating on minor keys really helped and now I’m looking forward to working with these minor blues ear training courses. I. Young
