Practice Perfect Applied Ear Training Volume Two

Practice Perfect Applied Ear Training Volume Two

Volume Two in this series is really Rock Ear Training. 10 Tracks are included in this series that cover some of the more common types of rock styles. You will find other rock styles such as Heavy Metal, Punk or Pop covered in another volumes. Although many times musicians think that various rock styles are “easy.” Many times hearing these simple chord progressions and tricky melodies can be a challenge for a musician. The tracks chosen for this volume exhibit many of these characteristics so don’t be surprised if you are stubbed sometimes on certain tracks. Over time you will hear them but it might take a minute.

Practice Perfect Applied Ear Training Volume Two

Much of the feedback I get from these Practice Perfect Courses is students tend to listen more because they receive more musical enjoyment from the tracks. While I recommend you start with our more clinical ear training books, Ear Training One Note Complete and Contextual Ear Training. Begin by getting to point with these courses that you are have around 50% correct answers once and awhile and then start into these Practice Perfect Courses. If on the other hand you will work on these Practice Perfect Courses because they are real music and you hardly ever work on the Ear Training One Note Complete and Contextual Ear Training courses then that is better than nothing. Just make sure you understand how your are suppose to hear or sing notes in a key center and not to use the common crutches that so many students fall into.

What is Practice Perfect?

The Practice Perfect series of books provides multiple ways for a musician to hone their ear training 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.

Practice Perfect Applied Ear Training Volume Two Improves Your Musicianship

Volume Two of the Practice Perfect Applied Ear Training is a collection of 10 different audio tracks where you are prompted to sing a specific degree in the key center. There is also 10 tracks where you hear a note and have to guess what that note is as real music is played. The tracks have the following characteristics:

  • All Rock Ear Training Exercises are in minor key centers though they may morph between different types of minor or even diminished at certain times
  • Most Rock Ear Training Exercises are meant for a beginner who is having troubles hearing in a minor key center. Though there are a few tracks that are more for an intermediate to advanced student. See examples below:
  • Most of these Rock Ear Training Exercises are around 2-3 minutes in length
  • Each Rock Ear Training Track has three different audio files. These tracks use either a soprano, alto or tenor voice which sings the answer.
  • Most of these Rock Ear Training Exercises are over a single harmony with a few exceptions.
  • Some tracks have moving melodic lines which are usually more difficult for beginners but are excellent for intermediate to advance ear training students.
  • All tracks are stylistically related to movie sound tracks with the vibe of action or suspense.

Preparing Yourself for Practice Perfect Applied Learning

Here are some ways to prepare yourself before beginning the exercises:

  • If you play an instrument have the instrument at hand even if you don’t play it as you do these exercises. Just its tactile proximity will make you think of how an exercise relates to it.
  • If you can play along with the audio tracks and also sing the notes when prompted will greatly increase the exercise’s effectiveness.
  • If you can do the exercises in different environments it will help with cognitive learning:
    • a. Try practicing in different rooms of your house.
    • b. Try practicing these Rock Ear Training Exercises with other musicians.
    • c. Try practicing these Rock Ear Training Exercises in front of other people.
    • d. Try practicing these Rock Ear Training Exercises at different times of the day.

Examples of the Rock Ear Training Singing Tracks

Keep in mind that each of the 12 tracks has three different audio files. One MP3s where a soprano voice singing the answer and two others with Alto and Tenor singing the answers. There are various examples of all three of these below:
