tuneup Tuneup: Basic Training Intonation System
With a timbre engineered to expose pitch discrepancy immediately, the Basic Training audio CD provides the player with three crucial exercises per Key. The player first sings, then plays against the CD, listening for the “beats of pitch discrepancy. As the player moves his or her pitch to correct the beats, perfect placement is found and held, establishing a “groove” where the perfect, pure interval is easily recognized in context.

The first exercise, the Tonic Track Exercise, is a drone using a complex timbre quick to expose the “beats” of pitch discrepancy. By following the provided studies, the player learns the location of each Major and minor interval per key, places the interval in both scales and arpeggios, and uses the exercise for excerpt, solo and etude development. However, Basic Training does not stop there!

The second exercise extends the intervals learned in the Tonic Track Exercises to full, perfectly tuned chords . The Interval Study provides the player with eight separate patterns that focus on the Root, Dominant and Third of the chord and on movement within the chord. Here the player learns to apply the intervals within the context of the chord.

Finally, the difficult skill of playing minor intervals is honed in the Minor Interval Study. Two patterns are provided to ease the player into mastering major and minor intervals.

The Basic Training Text lays an ample foundation for musical acoustics as it applies to intonation and also provides step by step guidance on developing the ear and using the audio CD. Included in the text is a Note Tendency Chart to track your instruments' tendencies and alternate tuning methods to compensate for them.

The Basic Training Workbook is available for instruments in C, Bb, Eb, F and Bass Clef.
