Ear Training is grounded in our personal journeys in jazz. Through the process of internalizing the sounds of intervals, chords and scales we gain quick access to the ideas we have in our head.
This gives us self-confidence as we identify the component sounds of the tunes we’re learning and helps us to construct an aural map that we can always reference.
In this class, Michael Zsoldos will share practice strategies designed to enrich your relationship with music.
There will be a lot of singing, ear training games. We will learn how to aurally transposing short phrases, and come away with tips on how to practice ear training.

Michael has been using The Musician’s Guide to Fundamentals, 3rd Edition, an eBook available via WW Norton. He has used this book in a class he teaches at Dartmouth College to great success.
Applying the information from this text along with the supplemental handouts provided by the instructor, students will learn their major and relative minor key signatures, how to spell triads and seventh chords on all of the scales.
