Jazz Piano School Ep 33 : Beginning Ear Training
Ear training is highly sought after in jazz because much of the music involves using our ear to hear progressions, licks, movements and much more. The better ear you have, the better player you will be. So how exactly do we go about improving our ear and helping it to hear movements and notes better. In this podcast that’s exactly what I will tell you.

    Bullet Points

  • 1. Play tonal center and sing it. Play your first diatonic interval and sing it. ( major 2nd.)
  • 2. Play key center then sing first interval WITHOUT PLAYING IT. ( Repeat these steps through all diatonic intervals)
  • 3. Come up with tunes or memory triggers for each interval going up and down. Leave in comments below what you came up with!
  • 4. Use interval sheet to write down these memory triggers for yourself.
  • 5. Play tonal center and try and sing all the intervals based off the tonal center without playing them.

    Thanks Eric!

    What a great call with “Take On Me”. I’ll definitely be using that one in the future! Thanks for leaving that here.
