Need a Good Ear Training Book
Can someone recommend a good ear-training book for kids under 14?
My son uses Marta Arkossy Ghezzo's Solfege, Ear Training, Rhythm, Dictation, and Music Theory in his pre-college program. (He is in 8th grade.) It comes with a CD. But I would say this is more of a college level text that likely would be difficult for most kids, especially if it is not being used in a classroom setting. It does come with a CD.
There are on-line ear-training resources too. There have been several threads on that issue in the past.
Hi Daniel, Ear training is a worthwhile goal, but I am skeptical --how can a book train an ear?? There are better resources. Do you have a piano? Can you be specific about what kind of ear training you want?
Erin Sabrini, a book can be very good for ear training because a book can tell you what to do. That will be the point of the book.
+1 to Lars.
