This Ear Training method has been developed to teach the student how to hear the way musical sounds are organized within a key. With proper application, the student will be able to instantly recognize: . Which notes other musicians are playing. . What key a chord progression is in. . What the notes in a given melody are. These are all invaluable tools for both playing and composing music. This Complete Method is recommended for students who have little or no music training or an advanced musician that needs to develop their aural recognition skills. This book contains all the information needed to work with the Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced CDs which as mentioned are avaiable separately. These CDs are entitled: Ear Training One Note Beginning Ear Training One Note Intermediate Ear Training One Note Advanced These 3 CDs are also available in MP3 format. Both formats can be purchased from various on-line vendors. A list of recommended vendors can be found on the muse-eek.com website.

How can the musicianâs ear penetrate the complexities and theoretical abstractions of the twentieth-century music?Â This book offers a solution: it enables the student to perceive essential musical connections at the core of modern music by identifying and drilling the distinctive structures and processes of the twentieth centuryâs greatest composers.Â
Michael L. Friedmann has developed and successfully tested a method that combines theory and exercises to give students a deeper understanding of modern music.Â Using musical examples from the works of Debussy, BartÃ³k, Choenberg, and Stravinsky, Friedmann begins with extensive work in sight-singing and dictation.Â The chapters that follow develop clear, multifaceted approaches to intervals and dyads, transposition and inversion, melodic contour, and three-and four-element set classes.Â In these chapters Friedmann offers students opportunities not just to identify the twelve trichord and twenty-nine tetrachord types, but to explore their structural possibilities.Â He also demonstrates the relation of these set classes to the diatonic, whole-tone, and octatonic scales.Â Finally, Friedmann introduces set classes of more than four elements, as well as twentieth-century modes.Â The book provides a wealth of musical excerpts including melodies composed by the author himselfâto test analytic listening ability and to make the student with each set class.Â Â
