The “Real Easy” Ear Training Book

by Roberta Radley

All great musicians have one thing in common - to a great extent, they know what
the harmony is as the chords of songs go by. Do you? If not, here's a practical
guide to get you up to speed!

For all musicians, regardless of instrument or experience, this is the most

comprehensive book on hearing the changes ever published!

Using musical examples that reflect all contemporary genres (pop, rock, Latin,
fusion, jazz), emphasis is placed on making ear training real, as Prof. Radley
shows how to apply the harmonic ear training studies in the book to your own
musical needs.

Covers both beginning and intermediate ear training exercises.

Trusting your ear can be challenging. However, doing so provides great personal
satisfaction and self-confidence. So what steps does this book take toward trusting
your ear?

Step by step, you will learn how to:

hear the bass line (the harmony's foundation) in the major key
gradually add major and minor diatonic triads
investigate how the melody provides harmonic clues for determining the chord
continue with seventh chord recognition
explore minor key harmony
and conclude with hearing some common non-diatonic chord patterns.
You will immediately begin recognizing popular chord patterns by:

using practice routines based on hundreds of dictation and transcription exercises

playing, singing, memorizing and transposing the chord progressions of songs
composing and arranging your own music based on familiar chord patterns given in
the book.
additionally, more than 150 songs are referenced throughout the book for real
You can work through this book on your own, with a friend, a teacher, band members,
or classmates.

Music Teachers! You will find this book invaluable in teaching ear training to your
students - as a stand-alone course, or in conjunction with your current ear
training methods.

Book includes 168 pages of instructional text and musical examples, plus two CDs!
