It is a well-known fact that there are not
as many useful pedagogical tools (recordings, texts, exercises)
for jazz ear-training as there are for jazz improvisation, jazz
history or jazz arranging. Over the years I have developed some
very specific jazz ear-training exercises for all chord types,
including dictation exercises for slash chords, modal
chords, progressions, and melodies.
Students should clearly understand the theory behind these various
structures before attempting the exercises which are primarily intended
for intermediate and advanced jazz majors. I have also included
herein a course syllabus for Jazz Ear-Training I & Jazz Ear-Training II offered at the University of Montreal.
All these are available through my correspondence lessons.
