Fanatics guide to Ear Training and Sight Singing A Fanatic's Guide to Ear Training & Sight Singing
by Bruce E. Arnold
Spiral-bound: 58 pages
Our Price: UK £22.00 USA $31.50
Book & Cd edition
This book and CD present a method for developing good pitch recognition through sight singing. This method 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. Muse-eek also features a FAQ section where students can direct questions that may arise as they work to the author, and which are generally answered within two days. This book is a required text at the New York University and Princeton University Music departments. Mr. Arnold's new ear training course is a first of it's kind available. He has taken the time to give students a detailed explanation of what works and what doesn't work when it comes to ear training. This book is the sight singing part of a series of books which are meant to be used together. If you are serious about improving your aural perception and basic musicianship it is recommended that you work with this book in combination with the following:

Lines - Sight Reading and Sight Singing ExercisesLines: Sight Reading and Sight Singing Exercises
Bruce E. Arnold
Our Price: £20.53
Paperback - 140 pages (April 2001)
This is a new ear training and sight singing book which takes a different approach by utilizing single line and part singing; where one voice is played while another is sung. The student can also choose to download midifiles of these exercises, as an alternative to playing them. These midifiles are available on the internet for free at www.muse-eek.com A method for creating a personal ear-training tape is also explained, which takes a fresh approach to learning note recognition. This regimen of singing and listening to an ear-training audio tape has been used with great success, even for students with severe pitch recognition problems. There are many methods of ear training available to the serious music student. The relative pitch ear training presented in this text is based on a two-part approach involving singing and listening to an ear training tape. Many of the exercises found in the book are on-line.
