Additional Information

What people are saying:

I love this series of ear training. It is great that you cover three of the most common chord progressions found in jazz and blues. The Major Blues, Minor Blues and Rhythm Changes has really helped me to apply Contextual Ear Training to real music. Much Appreciated! T. Newman

I’ve been working with Ear Training One Note Complete and Contextual Ear Training. Mr. Arnold said that this is where most students should start. Been at it for about 6 months and I’m getting about 50% correct answers on each course. Mr. Arnold suggested I start in on the Direct Application ear training. I started with the Rock, Metal and Punk Direct Application and also the Major and Minor Blues volumes because that is the music I like. I have made some progress but I still have quite a ways to go. Applying my new ability with ear training to real music certainly points out that it is an important part of the process. Thanks for your guidance. J. Dieters

Really appreciate you making these Applied Ear Training courses available. I find I spend much more time doing ear training with real music rather than just exercises. I should also mention that I’ve been at it for about a month and really hearing the difference in my ability!! W. Vanderlinden

Awesome course! I can’t wait for more jazz ear training courses that cover jazz standards and other ways of playing chord changes such as slash chords and chords build with pitch class sets!! H. Grieg
