What people are saying:

Key Note Recognition really threw me for a loop. I was getting 80% on the Ear Training One Note Advanced and suddenly I was down to “O” with Key Note Recognition! I contacted Bruce and he told me that was common. It had to do with my lack of “context.” In other words I was able to do the Ear Training One Note Advanced exercises but I was unable to transfer that knowledge to a related exercise. After 3 weeks I’m doing much better but wow, it was initially quite a shock. I’ve also started working on the Practice Perfect Applied Ear Training and the Direct Application CDs which are a lot of fun. I’m actually spending a lot more time with ear training now because I can do it while I’m improvising with the Practice Perfect Applied Ear Training or the Direct Application CDs Check them out, there are some nice grooves to play over while you are doing ear training. A. Faulkner.

I’ve been working with Mr. Arnold’s ear training since 2004. It’s made a major impact on my ability and I often recommend it to musicians that I meet on the road. I’m working on 3 note ear training now and it’s kicking my butt. Probably the most earth shaking moment for me was when I finally got past Key Note Recognition. That’s when everything really started to make sense to me. I found myself hearing more and more of what people were playing and my playing went to a deeper place. If you feel you just aren’t connecting with music then I would say check out these ear training exercises they have really changed me. J. Holman.

I was stuck in Key Note Recognition for almost a year. Let me tell you this wasn’t fun. Bruce kept my spirits up with the emails but some days where pretty rough. I’m glad I stuck it out I passed on to Two Note Ear Training a few months back and feel a real sense of accomplishment. All my band members have said they feel the ear training really has made a difference in my playing with them. What is cool is it’s not coming from a conscious place, I’m just playing and for some reason I just making better musical choices. I’m assuming it’s the ear training that the only thing I’m really practicing consistently. P. Jacobson.
