SECONDARY DOMINANTS: DIRECTION EAR TRAINING APPLICATION

SECONDARY DOMINANTS: DIRECTION EAR TRAINING APPLICATION
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. This book contains simple singing and improvisational workouts over chordal jam tracks to put yourself inside these "real" musical situations. 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."
