The Direct Application Ear Training series is a major expansion of our ear training method. It bridges the gap between ear training in a controlled exercise environment to its application in the real world. This is the first course of its kind for students who often experience the frustration of not being able to apply what they have learned from an aural comprehension exercise to a playing, real time situation. Each volume in this series covers a particular kind of key center and for the first time shows not only how they can be built, but also explains why certain key centers can be difficult for students to hear.
This Direct Application series is also an enjoyable way to do ear training. You can play along with your instrument or just listen passively; whichever works best for you. You can jam along with the tracks as you are tested on various notes or use it as a way to study scales, arpeggios and many other musical elements while you are also being tested with ear training exercises. For the student with limited practice time this is ideal for getting the most out of your schedule. There are six tracks in all 12 keys with each volume, so you get 72 tracks to get you developing your skills. These tracks are graduated in difficulty so that you can build your prowess over time, at your own pace, and in a sensible manner.
An informed ear is the the essence of making music. This is one of the reasons why we have developed so many different kinds of ear training products. These various exercises, set up for different contexts, will prepare you for any musical situation. The Direct Application Ear Training series gives you yet another step and in a way, the final step to apply your skills directly to real music.
Direct Application is recommended for any student who understands the difference between contextual ear training" and "interval ear training." While having some experience with our "One Note Series", "Fanatic's Guide" or "Contextual Ear Training" books is recommended, it is not essential to reaping the benefits of the exercises. But keep in mind that context is the secret behind all great ear training skills. The more you vary the type of exercise you do, the more you will be able to apply this ear training to the multitude of situations that will come your way in your musical life. Written in standard notation (no TAB). 36 pages and 72 MP3's included.
