Advanced Aural (MCGY3600)


This unit builds on the techniques studied in Aural Perception 1-4 and aims to develop listening and sight-singing skills to a more advanced level. The course will strike a balance between analytical, dictation and solfege exercises across a wide range of repertoire including some non-Western musical styles. Students will also have the opportunity to suggest particular types of work they would like to pursue.
