No reviews

This best selling book differs from the myriad of other sight singing books in that it develops the ability to identify and name all twelve pitches within a key center. Through this method a student gains the ability to identify sound based on it's relationship to a key and not the relationship of one note to another i.e. interval training as commonly taught in many texts. All note groupings from one to six notes are presented giving the student a thesaurus of basic note combinations which develops sight singing and note recognition to a level unattainable before this Guide's existence. This ebook is a must own for anyone serious about developing their ability to improvise and compose. Written in standard notation (no TAB). 108 pages.

KEY NOTE RECOGNITION - EBOOK/PDF VERSION

No reviews

To play 'by ear' a musician must first sense the key a chord or chord progression is in. You must also be able to sense key modulations in order to follow chord progressions that change key. The exercise found in this book is crucial to developing these skills.

Imagine being able to know the key of what you are hearing by just playing one note on your instrument. Think about the power this gives you to follow unfamiliar chord changes and get a quick sense of where keys are changing. This is the first step in developing the ability to follow complicated chord changes or to make informed scale choices when playing over a chord progression.

More importantly, developing the skills found in this book allows you to organize and remember sound based on how you hear it, not on how you consciously think about it. It will move you away from remembering sound based on non-musical distinctions such as instrument fingerings, and toward remembering and organizing sound based on how you hear it. Ultimately, this brings you closer to a deeper understanding of music and you will be able to store and retrieve music in your mind from a much more musical place.

At it's heart this is an ear training exercise to improve a students ability to apply the Melodic Minor Ascending Modes to secondary dominants and other dominant functions. These exercises help a student learn how they hear secondary dominants and in turn develop an ability to improvise over these chords and recognize their existence via their aural skills.

Ear Training is learned in one context at a time. If you spend your time just doing one certain exercise you will find while you gain ability with that specific exercise, you may not be able apply it to "real" music situations. This is why applying ear training to common chord progressions is one of the most important things to do once you have a working knowledge of how all 12 notes sound within a key center.

They are a fun way to strengthen and test what you are learning.

Secondary dominant harmony is one of the most commonly found chordal movements in music; "I Got Rhythm" wouldn't exist without it! Being able to hear these chords and how they interact is crucial to playing and writing music. Secondary Dominant harmony chord scales are most commonly associated with the modes of Melodic Minor Ascending. That's why this book concentrates on these 7 modes of Melodic Minor Ascending.

Developing your ability to instantly recognize what you are hearing in any given chord change is an important skill for any improvising musician or budding composer. This book presents you with chord progressions specifically chosen from my 30 years of teaching ear training because they are likely be heard in one way. This of course won't be universal with all students, but in my experience I have found that the progressions I have provided tend to lead a student's ear in a certain direction. Above all, first use "your" ear to help you decide which scale to use and then tackle these chords progressions accordingly. Examples are included in various styles such as Rock, Funk and Reggae. The MP3s allow you to work on this exercise in all 12 keys. Seven MP3 solos examples are also included. 91 pages. Written in standard notation (no TAB). Includes audio CD.
