Hi all,

A couple of months ago I started playing the piano. Thanks to tips on this forum, I bought Alfred's 'Essentials of music theory', the complete edition, including books 1-3. This book helps me a lot in learning the basics of music theory. It also includes ear training. But the ear training tracks are on 2 cd's. I do not have these 2 cd's, but I also would'nt be able to play them if I did, since I don't have a cd player as well. Does anyone know if they are available for (legal) download?

Kind regards,
Menno

This is the website location I would expect to find downloads but see no digital downloads of those CDs. Your local library might have the CDs.

Frankly, the ear training exercises are very brief in Alfred's 'Essentials of music theory', the complete edition. I would study the theory text (which I think is excellent) and ignore the ear training pages.

Then there are plenty of ear training options on line. For example:

Thanks for your fast reply! I'll try to mail Alfred.com and ask if they sell the ear training CDs as digital downloads. If they don't, I'll try the other ear training options online (in stead of Alfred's music theory) as you suggest.
