SUGGESTED PREREQUISITE: VOLUME 1
For all musicians (instrumentalists and vocalists) regardless of ability. Use for individual or group playing and practicing. If you use this volume in conjunction with Volume 1 you will have a solid foundation from which to meet any new challenge you may encounter. This set will quickly change the practice habits of many musicians . . . instrumentalists as well as vocalists. It covers (all twelve keys) major, minor (dorian, harmonic and melodic), dominant 7th, half-diminished, lydian, and sus. 4. It also has a very slow blues in F and one in Bb. A total of 31 different tracks with a lot of variety. This is an extremely thorough practice set. The tempos are not fast, which allows everyone, beginner or advanced, to have an opportunity to sharpen his skills. The booklet contains a wealth of information on practicing, ear training, nomenclature, chromaticism, digital patterns, cycle exercises, fourth exercises, double-time passages, comments to band directors (concert, stage/jazz, orchestra and vocal), backgrounds for warm-up period, and exercises which correspond to the written tracks, and more. There is enough here to keep everyone busy for a long time. Use this set and your imagination and look out!
