What is Practice Perfect

The Practice Perfect series of books provides multiple ways for a musician to hone their skills through exercises that teach 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.

Two different types of exercises are included:

  • Real music is played in the background as you are prompted to sing a specific pitch in the key center. You then hear the correct pitch sung by a soprano, alto or tenor voice.
  • You hear a note sung by either a soprano, alto or tenor voice as the real music is played. You are given a few seconds to identify that note, then the correct note is spoken. There are three levels each giving you more notes to guess throughout the track.

What people are saying:

Personally I don’t like Hip Hop that much but these tracks are really helping me. I’m not only singing the right notes most of the time but I’m also beginning to hear what chords and melodies are being played by the track. Awesome! H. Harrison

I find this Hip Hop version of the Applied Ear Training to be very good for an intermediate student. I’m getting about 50% correct answers on the Ear Training One Note® Complete course. Since Hip Hop uses easy chord progressions I find it to be much easier than for instance the Practice Perfect® Applied Volume Three (the Heavy Metal version) Appreciate you creating tracks for us intermediate folks. G. Oren

I’ve been working on the Contextual Ear Training® and been using the MetroDrone™ app for practicing scales. I find the combination of these two products and the Practice Perfect Series of Ear Training exercises to be really helpful. Thanks for making them available A. Mann

Hi Muse Eek, I’ve been using your Contextual Ear Training® and Ear Training One Note® Complete courses for sometime now and felt it was time to expand into your applied ear training. This is FUN! Appreciate all the different types of music you cover with each volume. I’ve found that just working with these new Applied Ear Training exercises really helps me to know what notes are being played when I listen to music on Spotify. This is really great ear training that actually works!. Y. Aleson
