Aural Skills 1

Assigned Faculty: Lenny San Jose
Course Description:

Aural Skills is a course intended to provide vocalists with the tools necessary to read a piece of music at sight and strengthen their musical ear. In both levels of Aural Skills, students learn to identify solfege, rhythms, and common musical devices such as chord tones, theme, and sequence, in order to enhance their ability to sight-sing. Students are also trained to sing and identify intervals, chords, and scales. Aural Skills 1 is the foundational course, and will serve as a training ground for the more rigorous curriculum of Aural Skills 2.
