Additional Information

This course continues the fundamental basics of ear training begun in MUSC 127, stressing the importance of active listening skills. Students are encouraged to listen intelligently to music patterns and provide an accurate analysis of relationships of notes, chords, and rhythmic patterns, as well as to hear and identify relationships of different tonal centres. Sightsinging exercises help to recognize melodic contours and tonal relationships.

The course is evaluated by a series of tests including a midterm and final examination.
