high notes

I like the holistic approach… so much attention and thought has gone in. I would recommend this to everyone with a longing to make music.

Linda Bloemhard

Senior Policy Advisor, Codarts University of the Arts, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Material is very high quality, practical, and user friendly. Keeping the idea of music as play rather than work is important, especially as the student progresses into areas that could be intimidating.

Harold Danko

Pianist and educator, Rochester, USA

"The Ear is entering the market at the very right time - when the whole world of music education is going hybrid. Until 2022 this was a controversial topic, but at this moment many are going there. If not, you risk being left behind.

Wouter Turkenburg

Former Director of Jazz Studies, The Royal Conservatoire, The Hague, The Netherlands

A brilliantly assembled and accessible resource that is comprehensive and adaptive. Immensely useful.
