What is Practice Perfect?

The Practice Perfect Applied Ear Training Jazz Series of books provides multiple ways for a musician to hone their ear training skills through exercises that teach by using real time application within a music environment. 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 a drone of the root of the key center while also being prompted to sing notes within the key center.

Depending on your current ability and affinity to more complicated harmonic environments different approaches may be needed to work through this course.

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:

I’ve been waiting for this jazz ear training using contextual ear training method for a long time.  I have found that just working with the Ear Training One Note® Complete helped me emmensely to understand how to hear music but I could readily apply it to real music.  These new Applied Jazz Ear Training courses are already making a difference after just a few short day of practice.  Highly Recommend!   E. Teague

This is a great course it starts out easy and then hits you over the head :)  I was stuck on the Bb Major Blues for awhile but the Piano and Drone exercises really helped me to solidify the key center.  You guys seem to have thought of all the troubles a student will run into as you put out the course.  Kudos!  A. Berlin

I’ve been working with Muse Eek’s ear training for many years now.  If you haven’t checked it out I highly recommend you do.  You won’t be disappointed.  Between the well written books, music examples and Mr. Arnold’s lightning quick response to my questions I’ve advanced beyond my wildest dreams.  This new Applied Jazz Ear Training is really something I need because I don’t have a solid background in jazz and this will help me grow my “Harmonic Pallette” as Mr. Arnold calls it.  . . Y. Evans

OK I’ve been playing jazz for about 10 years and some of these progressions are really kick’in my behind.  I’m glad they included so many help files because the D and G chord progressions are beautiful but very hard to hear.  Mr. Arnold assures me that if I just stick with in for a few weeks that I’ll hear it.  I’ll keep my ear to the grind stone because his advice seems to be always on target. = J. Henry
