Michael Friedmann's Ear Training for Twentieth-Century Music is a skills text; using non-tonal materials, students are asked to improvise at the keyboard, sing at sight, take dictation, memorize melodies by rote, and identify selected set classes by eye and ear.
These timeless tools provide teachers with a systematic approach for presenting the fundamentals of music theory for both private and classroom instruction.
My doctoral thesis has involved two related tasks. The first was to analyse Zoltán Kodály’s philosophy of music education and, on this basis, to develop a computer-assisted instruction method (CAI) for teaching music theory and solfège (ear-training). The second task was to experiment with the effectiveness of this method and compare it with traditional approaches to teaching. Many student find music theory and ear training difficult. During the 1990s, in connection with my licentiate thesis “Solfège in the Computer Classroom” (2000), I initiated this research project, and developed a CAI method for teaching music theory and solfège. I wanted to see just how useful Kodály’s approach could be in computer-aided teaching and learning. The results show that the Kodály approach can be successfully applied to the development of a computer-aided solfège programme and the Kodály system is applicable to new learning environments and teaching practices. In music education CAI is an area with great potential for development. It offers multiple learning options and can enhance students’ motivation to study music theory and ear-training; some of the learning outcomes were even better than with the traditional ways of learning. The results also show, however, that the teacher-pupil interaction is essential in a computer-aided learning programme.

With proper application, the student will be able to instantly recognize: . Which notes other musicians are playing. . What key a chord progression is in. . What the notes in a given melody are. These are all invaluable tools for both playing and composing music. This Complete Method is recommended for students who have little or no music training or an advanced musician that needs to develop their aural recognition skills. This book contains all the information needed to work with the Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced CDs which as mentioned are avaiable separately. These CDs are entitled: Ear Training One Note Beginning Ear Training One Note Intermediate Ear Training One Note Advanced These 3 CDs are also available in MP3 format.
