Here's what you'll gain:

You'll learn to UNDERSTAND and SPEAK the LANGUAGE OF MUSIC — all BY EAR.

You'll learn how to compose all possible kinds of chords — then NAME all chords by EAR ALONE. You'll learn musical intervals, cadences, inversions, scales, compound intervals, and countless other essentials — all to build up your virtuoso ear for music.

The further you progress with your Relative Pitch ear training, the more you will hear — and the more interesting the Lessons become. When you graduate Level 5, you will have full (and permanent) development of your Relative Pitch.

    • For ALL musicians, beginning, advanced, and pro
    • No previous music experience necessary
    • No music reading skills required


Important Note

Please begin your Relative Pitch Ear Training SuperCourse with Level 1, Lesson 1.

This unique audio series offers you a highly enjoyable and specialized progression of Relative Pitch ear training with David Lucas Burge. Therefore, it's important to start at the very beginning.

Maybe you already have Relative Pitch, and you'd like to do some routine maintenance — retune your ear, correct any deficiencies — to keep your ear running smoothly.

Maybe you are the newest beginner who is starting from point zero.

Maybe you're somewhere in between.

Wherever you place yourself, it is essential that you begin with Level 1, Lesson 1, and listen to each Lesson in its PROPER SEQUENCE. You will learn powerful techniques in Levels 1, 2, and 3 that you will use throughout the Course.

When you listen in this way — step by step — you are assured to receive Burge's complete Relative Pitch ear training tune-up — with the permanent benefits that we guarantee.
