|It is the musical reactions and
flexibility that put the finishing touches to a performance. But often a
lack of listening comprehension will present an obstacle to improvising
This is where 'Die neue Gehörbildung' by Tom van der Geld comes in – with a structured training for better listening comprehension in jazz and jazz-related music.
His carefully crafted method with many examples and dictation exercises leads, step by step, to a well-trained ear. Music theory is added wherever it helps to make listening easier.
The present new edition of Volume 1 includes lessons on intervals, triads and tetrads, scales as well as important connections of chords. In addition, it contains three special chapters on rhythm.
Including CD-ROM with worksheets and solutions for printing.
