Contextual Ear Training Without an Instrument

Q: Thanks for your quick and detailed response. I will look into those two singing books and buy one in the next couple of days. What I understand, from your descriptions, is that everything in the Contextual Ear Training¬†book is in the Fanatic’s Guide to Ear Training and Sight Reading. But, the Contextual Ear Training is easier to use and can be used away from a musical instrument. Is this basically correctly?

I see in the blog you listed that for the Contextual Ear Training you suggest starting with just some of the exercises then incorporating more and more. Do you recommend something similar for the Ear Training One Note Complete exercises? Should I just start with say C, D E & F, then add in G, A & B, etc.   Or is it better to keep test all twelve notes from the beginning of Contextual Ear Training without changing the method?

A: Nice to hear from you again. Yes the first exercise in the Fanatic’s Guide to Ear Training and Sight Reading is expanded into about 300 audio files in the Contextual Ear Training Course so that you can practice this concept anywhere without an instrument.

You can limit the amount of pitches you are working on if you think that helps you feel less overwhelmed. I would recommend at least once a day to listen to all notes so that you gain a perspective of all 12 pitches.
