this is a face to face class

If there isn't a class to suit you, please the waiting list.

Crack the code of music: learn how to recognise what you hear and write it down and how to vocalise and hear music as you read from the page.

For instrumentalists and singers, this online course provides a structured approach to the understanding and recognition of intervals and chords; scales, modes and melodic lines; developing practical skills in dictation and transcription; leading to a confident basis for sight-reading, improvisation and the development of melodic and harmonic line.

Classes will be held in a group context, using sol-fa as a tool. This method helps students to develop relative pitch, so that they are able to identify relationships between melodies and chords. It also assists with sight-reading for both singers and instrumentalists.

Completion of Music Fundamentals level 2 or AMEB level 2 would be advisable. Must understand music notation and have some knowledge of scales, time signatures and reading experience. An understanding of bass and treble clef is also advisable.

Level 1 classes will cover:
Vocal warm-ups
Scales (major, minor and chromatic)
Intervals (all to major 9th)
Chords (triads and 7th chords)
A take-down (working out simple melodies and rhythms and notating )
Meter and rhythm exercises in simple duple, triple and quadruple meters
Practice sight singing in the keys of C, G and F major
Two-part harmony practice
Sight reading and working out a song.( C, G or F major)

On successful completion of the course, a student’s outcomes should include the ability to:

  • Identify harmonic and melodic intervals, triads, 7th and 9th chords
  • Identify and sing major and minor scales and modes
  • Sing a minor blues scale
  • Conduct and sight read music from a range of genres including jazz, pop and music theatre
  • Work with an accompanist


This course has really pushed me into new spheres of musical knowledge. I’ll be continuing!

Renata was brilliant

Really enjoyed it. Renata built relationships with and between students, even online. Found it much more accessible than a weekly commute to the Con *(REGARDING ONLINE LEARNING)*_

It was just as if we were in the classroom. (REGARDING ONLINE LEARNING)
