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.

If you are new to the Practice Perfect Applied Jazz Ear Training Series of books. We recommend you first work with both the Ear Training One Note Complete and Contextual Ear Training Course. These will help you to hear notes within a key center which is the entire approach to our ear training courses.

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 or guess notes within the key center.
  • Just the piano playing the changes, with or without a key center drone and then prompted to sing or guess notes within the key center.

This course is structured for beginning to advanced students. The Bossa and Sambas vary from simple to highly complex and cover Major and Minor key centers.

Additional Materials found in the Applied Bossa and Samba Ear Training Course

This course also contains the exercises above as well as a video for each chord progression

What people are saying:

There is such a diversity of applied ear training in the catalog. I’ve worked with many of the 10 Volumes that cover various styles as well as the Rhythm Changes course. I love both the singing and listen exercises because they are graduated so I can find a level that allows me to improvise on my instrument while I do ear training. Super Hip! J. Leauning

I’ve worked with the Blues and Minor Blues Courses and I’m just getting started with the Bossa and Samba Ear Training. My favorite files are the ones with the drone. If I listen to those for a week or so and then try the others I do much better. Appreciate the recommendations Mr. Arnold gave me via email. Y. Oliver

I started a few months ago with One Note Ear Training After I was getting around 50% correct answers Mr. Arnold recommended I start with these Practice Perfect Applied Ear Training courses. What a riot to actually hear music. This is such a blessing in my life! Thanks!!! I. Victors

I love improvising with these as I do Ear Training. I’m short on practice time so this really helps me kill two birds with one stone… J. Anders
