Other Ear Training One Note Products by Bruce Arnold for Muse Eek Publishing Company

Ear Training One Note Products

The different Ear Training One Note books that are available.

Because musicians are coming to this ear training with so many diverse backgrounds and abilities over the years we have created a lot of different books to help them get the method that is most beneficial given their current ability.  Before we get started it is probably a good idea to look at the Ear Training Guided Tour to get a sense of the progressions of books that are used to take you from the beginning to master musician ears!

Of course this can’t be a perfect system because frequently a student isn’t even aware of their own strengths and weaknesses. But we have done our best to give all students books and audio files that will help them target their problems without wasting time and money.

Our most common recommendation.

Because “key center” based ear training can be a completely new idea to even advanced musicians, we always feel that the best idea is to start from the beginning so that no crucial details or concepts are overlooked. The most common problem we have is from musicians who “think” they have more advanced ear training skills than they actually have, or think that knowing about ear training is the same as having the ability to simply hear.

It has also been common for students to start at one level and realize they need to go to a higher or lower level. Based on these years of experience we have tried to create a path through our ear training method that takes all of this into consideration.

Before we get started with the other One Note Ear Training Books that are available we just want to say that we recommend Ear Training One Note Complete because it contain three levels of exercises: Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced. This ensures that you can find the appropriate level to start on without having to re-purchase another book if the one you bought is too easy or too hard. Please keep in mind that you may be an advanced musician but have severe ear training problems or a beginning student with excellent aural skills. This is why we recommend the Complete version. You move from one level to another as you get 80% correct answers. All three levels give you the same exercises. Each level doubles the speed of the exercise thereby making it twice as difficult.

Some customers may prefer to take an incremental approach to this ear training method.

We have also found over the years that for many reasons customers may prefer an incremental approach to getting involved with this ear training method. To satisfy this we have broken the Ear Training One Note Complete book up into 3 different books. While not the most cost effective way to approach this ear training it can be advantageous to the advanced student that just wants to dive into the most advanced part of the One Note Method.

Ear Training One Note is available as three separate books which can be digitally downloaded or bought as physical books.

Ear Training One Note Beginning

Ear Training One Note Beginning is recommended for any customer that has no previous musical training.

Status: In stock, Digital book is available for immediate access.

Ear Training One Note Advanced

Ear Training One Note Advanced is for a musician that has a strong background in music and is an intermediate to advanced player, who has a good background in music theory and can easily process the relationships of all 12 notes within a key center.

Status: In stock, Digital book is available for immediate access.

Super Advanced Levels of One Note Ear Training are also available.

We have also created two super advanced level of One Note Ear Training which we recommend to use after you are getting 80% correct answers on the Ear Training One Note Advanced exercises. These advanced files have a few unique features that are not available in the Ear Training One Note Book(s) previously mentioned.

  • They test you in both a major and a minor key center.
  • The “Degrees” advanced level asks you to name degree names rather than note names.
  • The “Extreme” advanced level plays the exercises twice as fast as the Ear Training One Note Advanced level.
  • These two additional exercises are only available as digital downloads.

Ear Training One Note with Degrees.

The digital download below will give you 86 MP3s that quiz you with One Note Ear Training in a major key center but ask you to respond with the degree of the key center rather than the note name. There is another set of 99 MP3s that quiz you in the same way but with a minor key center. Usually beginning students have a hard time with minor key centers so again wait till you are getting 80% correct answers on the Ear Training One Note Advanced files before attempting these exercises.

Status: In stock, Digital book is available for immediate access.

Ear Training One Note Extreme.

This digital download gives you exercises in both a major and a minor key center but at twice the speed of Ear Training One Note Advanced. Recommended after you complete Ear Training One Note Advanced.
