What I like most about this DVD is that ear training is so much
better to watch and try out than it is to just read about. The
fact that this is a filmed demonstration, is awesome.
What I like about Roberta Radley as a teacher is that she is very smart
and very focused. Her enthusiasm for this discipline and its
application is completely contagious. I found it really
inspiring that she originally struggled with ear training when
she first started out and considers herself to still be a student
of it as well."

"In unsolicited testimony I have received feedback from students who show
marked improvement and exhibit a new "confidence" in their skills. They
claim that working with the DVD "at their own pace" really helped them to
make greater strides in their development.
Thanks for making your excellent teaching available to us!"
