How To Apply Ear Training

Here is an ear training question that also happens to be a common question that is asked by many of my students:

Hi Posido,

A little advice please.. I’ve been using your MP3s to and from work everyday for about 2 months. I’ve got to the stage where I’m pretty much 100% unless I’m distracted or lose concentration… The question is, what do I do now??

I’m a keyboard player and would like this new skill to help me pick out melodies accurately by ear, and also to help me hear the root note of the next chord. However, I’m stuck in my age old trial and error method. Any ideas??

Thanks,
Steve
