Books on Ear training  that use the Piano

  Are there any books out there that focus on ear training but use the piano to realize it. So that the students can play though the excercises themselves.

The Four Star series published by Frederick Harris are great tools.  There are sightreading exercises, and all sorts of other ear training exercises to do each week-plus there is a "test" and things to work with teacher each lesson.  The books are progressive and are meant to be used with the Royal Conservatory exams, in Canada-they start at introductory and go up to grade 10 I believe.  

I used them in my training and now use them with my students-they are very comprehensive and I foudn them very effective.
