Practice Perfect Applied Ear Training Volume Three

Practice Perfect Applied Ear Training Volume Three

Practice Perfect Applied Ear Training Volume Three concentrates on using contextual ear training with real Heavy Metal songs. Like the Rock Applied Ear Training Course many melodic riffs and odd chord movements can easily throw off your ear. That is why, even though you may not like a certain idiom, it is a good idea to do ear training in that style of music because each style presents its own peculiar idiomatic quarks. Heavy Metal actually is in some ways a close cousin to Jazz because it employs more unusual scales like Phrygian, Locrian, Symmetrical Diminished as well as odd melodic movements often using a tritone. This can definitely throw off your ear training and again points out the importance of the Practice Perfect Series of courses. Remember "context" is always "king." You need to work with real music to find the situations that are challenging for your ear. You also need to do this in multiple idioms!

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.

Volume Three of the Practice Perfect Applied Ear Training is a collection of 12 different Real Heavy Metal Ear Training tracks were you are prompted to sing a specific degree in the key center. Below are some characteristics that all these tracks include:

What people are saying:

I own Practice Perfect Volume One and Two. My favorite is the Real Heavy Metal Ear Training tracks because that is the type of music I play and listen to! Would appreciate if you make even more of these!! D. Niemann

The Real Heavy Metal Ear Training exercises are great because they get into scales that are not often found in rock such as Locrian. Being able to work with real music and improve my ear training skills is the only way you would get me to do this type of training. Really get into rock'n out with these tracks. E. Young

Well, why no one has done this before is beyond me. Having Real Heavy Metal Ear Training Tracks and all the other idioms that Bruce covers in his book really makes ear training fun but also points out where my issues are with various types of music and different types of chord progressions and melodies. U. Olsen

Thanks Bruce for this new Practice Perfect Series. It is really making me practice more, which is great! J. Tiegen
