Ear Training

Fall/Winter 2020/21 

The purpose of this course is to get singers absolutely comfortable with identifying by ear and sight-singing major, minor & pentatonic scales, all melodic and harmonic intervals, as well as major, minor, augmented & diminished triads. It also includes in-depth rhythm training to cover whole, half, quarter, eighth, sixteenth, tied, and dotted notes, as well as triplets, in different time signatures.

The course is divided into 4 modules totaling 26 classes to allow ample time per subject and to truly internalize the information presented. There will be weekly 60-min. Zoom classes + homework in every module to get your ear into shape (note that some modules overlap and if taking the full course you'd have 2 classes per week from mid-November through the end of January).

There will be breaks for Thanksgiving and the Winter Holidays.

Basic knowledge of music theory is a pre-requisite for this course. You should be able to read pitch and rhythm, and be familiar with the basics of time signatures, scales, intervals, and triads. If you need to acquire or brush up on some of these skills, I also offer a companion Music Theory course.
