The structure of the text also allows students to proceed at their own pace through the material – lingering on sections that prove difficult or advancing through sections that come easily.. Instructors appreciate the flexibility of the EarTraining package which allows the text to be used in a lab-based course, in a instructor-guided setting, or in a course that combines the two. Students find that the logical progression of skills enables them to build gradually to full proficiency while ensuring that material they learn early in the course remains fresh. Intended for classroom instruction and combining a proven technique with an effective and easy-to-use supplements package, Ear Training: A Technique for Listening is the ideal text for college aural skills courses
"Awful" according to a musician. This is NOT designed for individual study! Buyer beware! I bought this rather expensive book thinking this would be a great resource for review before I take graduate school placement exams wrong!! The accompanying CD has examples played on a synthesizer, and they DO NOT follow the progression of the book as one would seem logical. The CD includes ONE set, or "transcription" for each unit, and does not have ANY of the examples from the book recorded onto it AT ALL. In addition, these transcriptions seems to be mainly of a synthesizer or of a guitar (and synthesizer). This is not really suited for serious college music students, at least . R. S. Burton said NOT awful. I hate to do this but "a musician" is very incorrect. If you read the first line of the information the publisher says this book is designed for "classroom use". I used this text in college and now use it to teach my Advanced Placement Music Theory Course. Without a teacher (or the teachers edition) the book is essentially a lot of music examples with the first note(s) written in. The point of the book is to develop the ear. It is clearly not a self study book. (Of course, if one bothered to read the information on site one would know that).. without CD anibal landazuri I received the book for ear training technique for listening and I have not received the CD of the book. Please can check and send the CD to my address. thanks
