Synopsis

This book comes with no CDs. You will need four CDs to work with this book. These CDs can be bought separately or you may download MP3 files from various on-line vendors. Contextual Ear Training is a major expansion of the "One Note" exercise from the "Fanatic's Guide to Sight Singing and Ear Training." Much of the material from the first few chapters of "Fanatic's Guide" is included in this book. This is because some students may be purchasing this book and not the "Fanatic's Guide."

Many students can easily sing through all exercises in the Fanatic's Guide once they have mastered the "One Note" exercise. However, It would still recommend getting the "Fanatic's Guide" because cases have be seen where a person has mastered the "One Note" technique but still has problems with the other "Fanatic's Guide" exercises, so it's prudent to make sure you are not one of those people. If you are new to this Ear Training Series its also recommend that you work with "Ear Training One Note Complete" book as a companion to this method. The "One Note" exercise is an extremely good exercise and the four CDs that are available separately from this book really help a student to focus in on this technique in a structured way. Contextual Ear Training includes a music theory section and FAQ sec
