The very thought of aural, especially in examinations, strikes fear into the heart of many young pianists and instrumentalists. But aural should not be an occasional optional extra, it’s something to be developing all the time, because having a good ear will help you to improve as a musician more than any other single musical skill.
Improve your aural! is designed to take the fear out of aural. Through fun listening activities, boxes to fill in and practice exercises, this workbook with downloadable online audio focuses on all the elements of the aural test. And because all aspects of musical training are of course connected, a range of interconnected activities are included to help develop the ear including singing, clapping, playing your instrument, writing music down, improvising and composing.
