In order to understand music, a student must hear examples of what they are learning. No textbook can fully explain the differences between a whole and half step, a major or minor scale, or a major and dominant 7th chord.
Alfred's Essentials of Music Theory incorporates ear training right in the textbook! Students learn new concepts in concise lessons, practice their music reading and writing skills in the exercises, improve their listening skills with these Ear Training CDs, and test their knowledge with a review that completes each unit.
To further develop aural skills, the examples are played by a variety of acoustic instruments (piano, flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, trombone, violin and cello). Because each instrument has its own unique tone quality, these CDs will help the music student get accustomed to more than one type of sound.
