Contemporary Aural Course - Set 3

Audio and workbook

The Contemporary Aural Course is recommended reference material for the AMEB's Contemporary Popular Syllabus

Give yourself a head-start in any examination system that includes an aural component!

The Contemporary Aural Course is not just a series of questions, but includes step-by-step training on how to listen, sing, clap and transcribe and what to listen for.
The unique shorthand system for music transcription ensures a professional level of skill, so that students can capture the sounds in the shortest possible time. The format of audio and workbook, ensures that students can work independently improving their listening skills each day, rather than once a week during lesson time.

The books in this series are not stand-alone courses. They provide the format in which
to write the answers to the questions heard in the audio and some instructional material relating to each lesson.


This book includes a separate lift-out sheet with the answer keys so teachers can check their students’ results or students can self-check.    Track listing sheets are included
and are also available as a free download from this page.
