Learn Ear Training with Pocket Tones Tuners!
====================================
POCKET TONES - PERFECT PITCH musicians always want,
on a key chain!

This handy little device is a great tool for singers and it is conveniently designed to fit on a key ring.
Here are just a few ideas of how to use it:

a) Practice pitch matching - everyone can use practice on matching pitches. Play the tone and then sing the pitch. Be sure to record yourself to make sure what you hear when you are singing is what others hear too!

b) Practice developing relative/perfect pitch - Can you do it? Can you look at the pitch name and hear the correct tone in your head? This little item is a great way to accomplish this development. It's on your keychain so when you find yourself with a spare minute anywhere you can work on singing the pitch first and then checking yourself with the tones.

c) Learn a melody line. If you don't have access to a piano, you can pick out the pitches on the Pocket Tone to help you learn a melody from sheet music.

d) Have a chance to sing somewhere but there's no music? Make sure you get started on the right pitch!

e) Barbershop or other group of harmony singers, get your starting pitches.

f) Practice and learn intervals between notes.....

I think you get the idea. It really is handy and each of us claimed at least one of them. Order yours today too!

The C Chromatic is recommended for women and the F Chromatic is recommended for men.

Perfect Pitch SuperCourse by David Lucas Burge

#1 Selling
Perfect Pitch Ear Training Course!


When you know each pitch by ear, musical tones become yours to command. For example, if you want to play by ear, your ear does the work for you -- instead of searching for desired tones by hand.


The Perfect Pitch Ear Training SuperCourse
($139.00 )
by David Lucas Burge

ORDER NOW

Learn to recognize EXACT tones -- BY EAR! The #1 best-selling ear training method, as seen in major music magazines for 20 years and verified by research at two leading universities.
An amazing discovery into your personal musical talent.

In classical times, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin -- and most all the musical greats -- had Perfect Pitch. From classical to pop to rock to jazz, many current and recent superstars also possess (or did possess) Perfect Pitch: Frank Sinatra, Leonard Bernstein, Barbra Streisand, Julie Andrews, Andre Previn, Stevie Wonder, Nat King Cole, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Glenn Gould, Yngwie Malmsteen, Eric Johnson, Tommy Mars, Bela Bartok, Jascha Heifetz, Paul Shaffer, Yo-Yo Ma, Yanni -- the list goes on and on.

In the general population, Perfect Pitch is rare. But the further up the musical ladder you climb, the more commonplace the ability becomes. For example, at the Julliard School of Music you'll find about 10% of the students with Perfect Pitch. A typical symphony orchestra will boast 20-40% of its membership with Perfect Pitch. Surveys indicate that half of today's most popular recording artists have Perfect Pitch, rising to 87% for top concert performers.

Professionals rate a good sense of pitch as the most valuable element of musicianship -- higher than any other essential, including good rhythm, technical facility, accurate memory, intensity discrimination, and creativity. Even with years of formal training and the finest instrument, one's success and enjoyment always hinges on one's ability to hear.

The Perfect Pitch Ear Training SuperCourse contains 8 audio CDs (or cassettes) plus easy handbook. You will learn the fascinating secrets behind the legendary ability of Perfect Pitch -- the prized "super ear" of the world's greatest musicians, the master key that enables you to:

+ recognize EXACT tones and chords -- BY EAR!
+ sing correct tones -- without a starting pitch
+ play songs by ear after listening to them
+ compose music in your head
+ perform with confidence, increase your powers of memory
+ sight-read and sight-sing with precision
+ enjoy richer perception, finer music appreciation

The proof? You will actually hear for yourself -- with YOUR OWN EARS!

It's a curious experience the first time you can tell that a vocalist hit a high C, or when an ensemble has drifted flat -- just by listening with your own ears. Singers find Perfect Pitch invaluable for sight singing, locating obscure pitches, singing in tune, and producing a correct pitch out of thin air.

Glancing at a page of sheet music, others may see only black dots. But with Perfect Pitch, you can mentally hear how each pitch sounds.

Listening to music, you can hear that a piece is in the key of G major, and you can follow the chords by ear: E minor, A major, D dominant seven, etc. -- a vital tool to zero in on voice lines within layers of melody and harmony.

Do you ever have a new melody or new chord sequence come to your mind, unexpected, in a flash of inspiration? When your ear can identify tones with Perfect Pitch, you can take that music out of your head simply by listening to your "inner radio."

Perfect Pitch (known in scholarly circles as "absolute pitch") also adds a higher aesthetic appreciation. Acoustical psychologist A. Bachem found that "particular characteristics of certain keys, e.g., the brilliancy of A major, the softness of D flat major, can only be appreciated fully through absolute pitch." This richness of sound extends even beyond the musical sphere into day-to-day living. For example, as your ear becomes more alert, you suddenly find that you can easily recognize voices on the phone, or quickly pick up languages and foreign accents.

Imagine the talents your Perfect Pitch can open for YOU -- to advance your playing, your singing, your own creativity and confidence. But then again -- how will you ever know until you experience Perfect Pitch for yourself?

Don’t wait and wonder. Order your own Perfect Pitch Ear-Training SuperCourse -- a lifetime gift of music to yourself. Do it now -- and hear it with your own ears!

A Fanatic's Guide to Ear Training and Sight Singing by Bruce Arnold

A Fanatics Guide to Ear Training and Sight Singing ($24.99)
By Bruce Arnold

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.

 

Ear Training:  One Note Complete Method by Bruce Arnold

Ear Training: One Note Complete Method ($24.99)
by Bruce E. Arnold

What is Ear Training? Just as an artist must know every color in order to create a beautiful painting, a musician must know and hear all the notes of the musical "palette" in order to create good music. The Ear Training method presented here 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 can be used by beginners who have little or no music training or by advanced students seeking to improve their ear training ability.

This compilation book and CD contains all the information found in the following books: Ear Training One Note Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced. It also includes three accompanying CDs which allow a beginning student to build up their ability gradually and the advanced student to prepare for the next level. By working through each CD the student will refine their pitch perception and their response time will steadily speed up. The ability to quickly and accurately identify pitches positively affects all aspects of musicianship, and the beginning student will find this book and 3 CDs to be the most economical way to work through this method.

Muse Eek Publishing Company hosts two on-line resources in conjunction with this book. A "Frequently Asked Questions" (FAQ) page has been set up, where students can ask the author questions that may arise as they work. There is also a free "Member's Section" where book owners can download other files specific to this book and/or other help files to further their music education. Unlike traditional situations where the reader is left on their own after purchase of a text, Muse-Eek Publishing seeks to keep the reader/ student engaged and interactive with the author. With each book you are beginning a relationship in which help and direction are always available to make sure you are learning correctly. This book is a required text at New York University and Princeton University, and is recommended for beginning music students ages 13 and up.

Sight Reading and Sight Singing Exercises.

Lines Volume One: Sight Reading and Sight Singing Exercises ($31.50)
by Bruce E. Arnold

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. 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.

by Samuel Adler, Alfred Adler

This is accomplished through quite difficult exercises which literally tune your ear and voice for the precise execution of intervals, in any succession, and most importantly, without reference to a mode or tonality.
