Paul Harris/John Lenehan: Improve Your Aural! - Grade 1 (New Edition)

Books and CDs

Publisher: Faber Music
Format: Books | Aural
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 CD 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.

This new edition of this popular series supports new ABRSM syllabus requirements from 2010, ensuring success in the aural test of graded exams.

        London GB up to Grade 5
        The CD gives children with limited exposure to music a variety of rhythms and instrumental challenges
        Children like to be brought into the subject by drawings and this clearly looks like a text book or homework.

        I think the book has a good approach, but could have more examples.

        I really love this book, it is fun and straight to the point. I use it and find it very useful as students can practice with the CD at home
