Traditional aural training is heavily biased toward the perception and identification of pitch and rhythm. Pratt argues here that in these days of CDs and cassette recorders much of this area of the subject can be best worked on alone. He demonstrates how, by tailoring tasks to individual needs, every student can make some encouraging progress in these aspects of music. This new edition has been substantially revised to make it more accessible to younger students as well as imaginative teachers.

George Pratt is at University of Huddersfield.Review:
`The book's strength lies in the variety of excellent suggestions it makes for workable ear-training exercises in the class, lesson, or private-study context. It is, in essence an ideas book... the 'practice' side of aural training is well presented... I applaud Pratt's long overdue refocusing
of our attention on parameters other than pitch and rhythm... an ideas book, a practical handbook for the classroom or studio... the material is presented in an engaging and unpretentious manner and enlivened with the occasional dash of humor.'
