Ear Training and Sight Reading Level 3

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

For instrumentalists and singers, this 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 shared 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.

Level 3 continues on from Level 2 and will also include:
All modes, pentatonic & blues scales.
Chords progressions are now sung and heard with the use of Helen Hobbs Jordan’s Roman Numerals Book.
Meter and rhythm now includes syncopation.
Part singing and the songs chosen now are more challenging.

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
