Have you spent time training your ears…

… but then lost interest?

Have you ever found yourself in need of a little advice and encouragement to keep working on improving your musical ear?

We all need a helping hand now and then when it comes to learning music—and ear training is no exception.

That’s why we’ve collected up more than a hundred of the best ear training tips, covering all the core topics in ear training, and compiled them into one handy eBook: so that you’ll have the nudge you need at just the moment you need it!

Ear Training Tips

With most Easy Ear Training products, we target a particular type of ear training and go into depth on training routine and techniques to help you develop your musical ear in that area.

101 Ear Training Tips for the Modern Musician eBookThis one’s a little different.

“101 Ear Training Tips for the Modern Musician” is a big bundle of bite-sized wisdom. Tips, advice, and new suggestions to give you a boost in your ear training.

You don’t need to be immersed in ear training already—the book also includes some more general tips on music appreciation, and how to start out in ear training.

But if you’re already working on
Chord ear training
Interval ear training
Rhythm ear training
♫ … or any kind of musical ear training in fact,
you’ll find tips inside that will help you improve your ears faster, and help you stay excited and motivated to keep at it.

Tips for Every Topic

Supposing you’re working on playing chord progressions by ear.

Flip to the “Chords” section, and you’ll find a tip like this:

You can harmonise any melody based on the major scale using just the I, IV and V chords – because those three chords together include all the notes of the scale. Try it!

Or jump ahead to “Playing By Ear” and you might find this one:

If you find it difficult to reproduce pieces on your instrument, use singing or humming as a stepping stone.

If you can sing a line of music, you are already playing it by ear – using your voice!

It may then be easier to transition to your instrument. It’s even more beneficial if you can sing the line while tapping or clapping the beat.

Something for everyone

Ear Training Tricks for All TopicsWe’re not going to claim that each and every tip will be perfect for everyone—musicians are far too varied for that!

But with 101 varied ear training tricks, tips and hints, we can guarantee that:

  • Whatever stage you’re at with ear training
  • Whatever instrument you play (or even if you don’t)
  • Whichever country, style, genre, or era of music you love

you will find ideas in this book that help you get more out of music.

Spread the Knowledge
