            The aim of this Berklee Workshop DVD is to help students recognize chord progressions. There has been a scarcity of material in this area of ear training and this DVD helps fill that gap very nicely. Berklee instructor Roberta Radley discusses how students can take a logical and analytical approach to breaking down the hearing process by listening for one element at a time such as the bassline, the chord’s third, or whether the chord sounds “in key’ or not. By applying these processes individually and combining them with theoretical knowledge the student can determine the chord progression. Radley does a great job of explaining and providing suitable examples. The second half of the DVD consists of listening exercises of increasing complexity played on piano followed by the answers (I did notice one error in the answers). Radley doesn’t pretend these skills can be learned by watching the DVD a few times and in fact says right at the beginning that it takes a very long time. Basic ear training and music theory is a prerequisite before diving into Harmonic Ear Training. This DVD is a very good investment for anybody wanting to learn how to recognize chord progressions, just expect to invest a lot more in time.
