6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Matthew J. King on 6 May 2011
Format: Paperback
Hardly elementary but an invaluable resource for advanced students or professional musicians. Hindemith (in his typically imaginative and systematic way) constructs an excellent series of exercises to enhance general musicianship: sight-singing, rhythmic accuracy and almost every conceivable form of musical coordination. I have used this book many times with classes of undergraduates. It's been a lot of fun!

Format: Paperback
This is an absolutely must-have book for anybody teaching aural skills / ear training. Even though you don't end up using every little bit of the book, it is packed with useful exercises. It's a book that works with intermediate and advanced students

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Arthur Freitas Vieira on 25 April 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Best book out there for the most fundamental training. Even if you've studied music for some years you'll find that after the first 10ish pages of exercises you'll be struggling with what you can see are still basic skills.

As long as you have elementary musical notation knowledge you can start on this book. The lack of context may throw you off, but be persistent! Be pragmatic and keep training.

This book is a result of the recognition that even some big musicians lack basic skils, due to poor teaching of basics, as said by Hindemith in the preface.
