Welcome to episode 235 of the LJS Podcast where today I put you to the test. Instead of the regular format of tips and tricks for becoming a better jazz musician, we’re doing an ear training intervals quiz and I want to see how well you do.
Listen to episode 235
Today’s episode is a bit more of an experimental episode where I am going to be putting you to the test.
We are going to be going outside of our normal format of tips and tricks for becoming a better jazz improviser and we are going to instead be doing an ear training interval recognition quiz.
I want to see how well you do at recognizing intervals, ascending and descending.
Now, ultimately as jazz improvisers, we want to be able to play what we’re hearing in our head. That’s really the goal.
But that doesn’t come naturally to everybody. Certainly, it doesn’t come naturally to me.
And ear training fundamentals such as interval recognition are ways that we can work out our ears, help us become more critical listeners, and help us know what we are actually hearing.
So, this is a great skill to have. Ear training is something that everybody should do a little bit of and so, we’re going to see how well you do and see if you need to be doing a little bit more of it.
