Written to encourage listening/ear training in beginner guitar players and road tested in individual and group guitar lessons and Wider Opportunities sessions. The student should listen and echo each phrase heard on the MP3 immediately (WITHOUT referring to the music!) The range is G, B, E - ie open strings to make it easy - and A is introduced towards the end to resolve the piece. The phrases get progressively more difficult. Echoing Notes can be used with reading or non-reading guitar players from lesson 1 onwards. I use it all the time to encourage listening with single students and groups from 2-30 children. You can also use Kodaly hand signals to great effect with classes.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
