Aural Matters-Schott

A Student’s Guide to Aural Perception at Advanced Level
Aural Matters
David Bowman
Paul Terry
Included are two accompanying CDs.


This book provides useful resource material for aural training at an advanced level. The first part is packed with examples of dictation and discrimination exercises, carefully graded in difficulty. The text provides a systematic approach to aural training, with melody and two-part dictation, harmonic recognition, and identifying errors in performance. Frequent hints and tips enable the student to develop increasing skills and confidence in the tests.

Part Two

A recorded anthology of the compositional techniques with which students are expected to be familiar at an advanced level. A huge variety of extracts has been specially selected from British folk songs, world music, jazz, pop and the main periods of art music from the late Renaissance to modern times.

A detailed commentary shows how to recognize periods, styles, structures, instruments and techniques in this music, with all of these features illustrated in the examples on the accompanying CD. The complete work provides an invaluable resource not only for the Advanced level aural syllabus but also for any study of style and analysis in the wide variety of music that is encountered today.
