A way to practice recognizing the b2 and #4 is to set your ear up in the key of Bb Major on the vibe or piano by playing the scale or a cadence that clearly establishes the key of Bb in your ear. Then, turn your back to the instrument so you can't see it and play any random white note on the piano (or vibe). Without looking, identify the pitch and play and sing it's pathway back to "DO" (Bb Major). By doing this in Bb, you will sometimes play the notes B (Ra), and E(Fi) in the key of Bb.
