A complete, progressive course that teaches musicians how to notate music from audio examples, packaged separately on an included CD set. Basic melodic dictation is followed by progressively more complex scores, in classical, jazz, and popular styles. Designed for the two year undergraduate sequence, Strategies and Patterns for Ear Training offers valuable strategies to students and teachers alike.
This disc, which accompanies every copy of the Manual for Ear Training and Sight Singing, contains more than 680 recordings on real instruments of dictation, transcription, and other listening materials. The students’ instructions for these materials appear at the end of each chapter in the Manual for Ear Training and Sight Singing, and all answers are printed in the Instructor’s Dictation Manual. The recordings appear on the disc in MP3 format, allowing students and instructors to use them in multiple settings.
