The first review for the Ear Confidence course is in:
This Ear Confidence course streams online. Take it at your convenience. All you need is an internet connection!
Three requests I hear from my students more than any:
I hear you and I agree these are vital skills for a musician. Maybe you tried a few ear training programs, dutifully stuck to exercises identifying intervals but felt when you were looking to transcribe a tune or playing on a jam, it didn’t really help! Or perhaps you are even duly doing your Functional Ear trainer Exercises (something I frequently recommend) but are still waiting for it all to click!
Ear training is so important and there are so many misunderstandings as for how to best train the ears that I felt compelled to create a course with ear training for the bass player as its main focus. As you know I have many courses coming, but this one felt so important I prioritized this Ear Confidence course.
There are excellent exercises one can do, but if used in isolation without applying a few key principles presented in this course, they will only help so far.
We do a quick initial test to unravel a particularly negative stigma some musicians have been cursed with.
Then I guide you to open your perception of sound to include kinesthetic, emotional and visual elements. This is one huge step that will make ear training not only aurally exciting but also feel good. In this context, I will show you possible reasons why many of the ear training exercises you may have done left you puzzled and still unsure about your ear’s proficiency.
Presented from quite basic to more advanced, this course is an amazing road map to better ears and more confidence on the bandstand.
It is my goal to make a persuasive case for the most effective ear training drills as well as help you understand how exactly to bridge the gap between theory and practice or drill and stage: sprinkled throughout the course are nuggets of information that will help you remember the awareness training we will be doing, that will enable you to detangle your confusion, to focus in on what matters and to throw you a lifeline.
PS: And yes, for those of you who are waiting for my other promised courses, all this is coming, too. This Ear Confidence ear training course just turned out too important to put to the end of the line!
