Ear Training Three Note Direct Application Arpeggiated Study:

Ear Training Three Note Direct Application Arpeggiated Study plays 3 note arpeggios 10 times with a 10 second gap between each repetition. A student can use these files to similate soloing over unknown changes. This is done by playing one note on your instrument after you hear the 3 notes. A student first distinguishes the key center of the 3 notes. Then using the one note ear training method identifies the three notes within the key. The remaining time is spent improvising over the 3 note arpeggiation which lasts about 2 minutes. The names of the notes are not given verbally on the track but the track name contains the pitches played. This is a great exercises for simulating improvising over chord changes without known what chord is next. These MP3’s use an acoustic piano sound and each example chooses three out of the 88 possible notes on the piano. Five Volumes available.

What people are saying:

I been working with the muse-eek.com ear training for five years. It’s been quite a journey and education. When I think about what I knew when I started and what I know now it makes me chuckle. I really had not a clue on how to really hear music and know I can hear 3 notes played identify the key center and know what the three notes are. That’s pretty amazing in my view. I wouldn’t say this ear training is easy but I will say that without these well designed products and the support that Bruce gives students makes this whole process doable. In general I’d say if you aren’t serious about learning ear training then stay away because every aspect of the way Mr. Arnold interacts with students to the way the books are put together expects that you are serious about music and you really want to be a world class musician. If that’s your goal then look no further. W. Robinson

I’ve been working with the Ear Training Three Note Direct Application Arpeggiated MP3s over the last few months. Bruce recommended these to give me more work on applying my ear training skills. I think this is one of the most important aspects of the muse-eek.com ear training program is the understanding that if you don’t apply your ability to real music you will never be able to use in real time as you play or listen to music. Personally I think keeping in touch with Mr. Arnold about your progress is important too. Every time I contacted him I learned something about how I could improve my practice regimen. In my opinion muse-eek.com music books are the best in the business for a serious musician. K. Hernández

I emailed Bruce because I was about 60% on the two note ear training and from that email he suggested I try a few Three Note Ear Training downloads to see if it would help my modulation skills. Bruce explained that many time three notes actually form a stronger key center than two notes. I worked with the three notes for a few months and then went back to the two note ear training examples that I had problems with and sure enough I could hear the modulation better. Thanks Bruce! G. Thompson

I’ve been using a few of the Three Note Ear Training studies Direct Application downloads to help my ability to recognize chords in a real music situation. Not only has this improved my ability but it has been a real education on how I actually hear simple chord progressions. I never would have guessed that the chord that happen previous is so important in how you hear the next chord. This is just amazing to me every time I do this exercise it just blows me away the amount I learn about how I “hear” music as to opposed to how I “think” about music. A. Pérez
