Does the very thought of the dreaded aural test fill you with fear? Does nothing seem as bad as being put on the spot, having to recognise discordant intervals, and singing back melodies that are simply too long to remember?

Having a good ear is vital to becoming a successful musician, and Improve Your Aural! is here to help develop your musicianship in easy graded stages. Through fun listening activities, boxes to fill in and practice exercises, this workbook and CD focus directly on all those key skills you need. You'll be singing, clapping, playing your instrument, writing down music, improvising and composing - as well as securing that vital pass in the aural section of your grade exams.

It really is aural training, rather than cramming a quick practice to get a few easy answers. So still need teacher/CDs etc for proper practice once know what to listen out for.

Breaks down the precise things to listen for in the era questions very well.
The drum-beat intro to each section!

I would also have liked more examples of piano-only pieces as are played by an examiner in the music exams (rather than the whole orchestra with period instruments and size of sound as a guide).

Customer Rating Fantastic training away from piano lessons.

Easy to follow instructions and great to do to build on your existing knowledge. I buy these for older kids and adults to do at home, and use them in lessons with smaller children.
Perfect for ABRSM aural exams, as takes away the fear
All good fun too!

Customer Rating A very interesting, concise and informative book which help with improving personal aural skills

Customer Rating Great book to help develop your aural skills at the higher levels. A workbook rather than a book full of exam type example questions. Highly recommended for tutors to work through with pupils who struggle with the Aural section of exams.

Customer Rating An excellent aid for both teachers and students.

Customer Rating This is an excellent work book for those preparing for examinations. It not only covers the immediate requirements for the ABRSM practical examinations but helps general listening skills.

Customer Rating Very good on the whole. I objected to the centre pages being filled with promotional material. The choice of synthesized music in some of the questions was a pity. The voice of the speaker was clear. I would have liked the key chord to have been repeated each time in CD 2, track 18.
