Teachers Ear Training Information
Teachers ear training information can be found on this page. I’ll make some suggestions on how to incorporate this style of ear training into your private or class lessons. I sometimes find it a bit tough when introducing my ear training to teachers. Sometimes they have already started students on a specific method of ear training that conflicts fundamentally with the type of ear training I teach. But sometimes i find a very different reception. One educator actually said to me “At last! I’ve been saying this is the kind of ear training we should be teaching!” So if you feel you are ready to turn to a new concept of ear training I’m happy to work with you.
Where to start for Ear Training Teachers
I think the best thing to do first is to read the various pages of this website and see if you agree with the ideas I’ve presented. Read the Intervals page; this is probably the most controversial aspect of “Contextual Ear Training.” If you agree with the premise, then go listen to some examples of the One Note Contextual Ear Training exercises. If this all makes sense to you then please send me an email and let’s discuss whether you personally need to brush up on some of the exercises I’ve created, or if you feel you are ready to introduce these ideas to your students.
The Scope of Your Teaching
I usually give teachers discounts on books and even discounts to their students. Contact me and give me some links to check out the scope of your teaching and give me an idea of how many students you teach. I’m very interested in expanding my ear training concepts to as many people as possible so everyone can enjoy really hearing music.
