Welcome to the Part 2 of our Ear training series.

Here we will be doing three drills. Please press and emulate the sounds you hear with your voice.

 

Ear Training drill #2 – Take 3 drill

I call this the “Take 3” drill because you will be playing the major scale (C precisely) in thirds i.e with three consecutive notes respectively.

Here it is:

Press C,D,E – Sing Do, Re , Mi

Press D,E,F – Sing Re, Mi, Fa

Press E,F,G – Sing Mi, Fa, Sol

Press F,G,A – Sing Fa, Sol, La

Press G,A,B – Sing Sol, La, Ti

Press A,B,C – Sing La, Ti, Do

Press B,C,D – Sing Ti, Do, Re

Press C,D,E – Sing Do, Re, Mi (high)

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Now that was done in an ascending format. Can you do it in a descending format?

Descending

 

Press C,D,E – Sing Do, Re, Mi (high)

Press B,C,D – Sing Ti, Do, Re

Press A,B,C – Sing La, Ti, Do

Press F,G,A – Sing Fa, Sol, La

Press E,F,G – Sing Mi, Fa, Sol

Finally the “Take 5” drill simply means playing and singing along to 5 consecutive notes played at a time.

Press C,D,E,F,G – Sing Do, Re , Mi, Fa, Sol
