Punkademic Ear Training and Aural Skills Part 2: Intervals

Punkademic Ear Training and Aural Skills Part 2: Intervals

Are you a music maker, performer, composer, or aspiring songwriter looking to up your game? This is the place to start.

Ear Training and Aural Skills is the practice of learning to play music by ear, learning to notate music by ear, and learning to understand music on a deeper level just by hearing it. In this class we are going to learn techniques for listening, analyzing, and notating music (writing it down) just by listening. Perfect Pitch is not required.

If you don't know me, I've published a lot of music theory classes here. Those classes have been really successful, and the number one request I've been getting from students is to make an Ear Training sequence of classes. So here it is! This series will have 6 parts:

Part 1: Rhythms
Part 2: Intervals (This one!)
Part 3: Melodies
Part 4: Diatonic Harmony
Part 5: Chromatic Melodies
Part 6: Chromatic Harmony
Each of these classes comes with about 4 hours of training, and a LOT of things to practice with. And of course, access to me with any questions you have at any time.

Here is a list of some of the topics we will cover in this class (Part 2, Intervals):

- Why Do We Care about Ear Training?
- Methods of Interval Recognition
- Using Colors, Numbers, People, and Textures
- Using Familiar Melodies
- Identifying Major intervals
- Identifying Minor intervals
- Notating a Melody by Ear
- Identifying Melodic and Harmonic Intervals
- Commonly Confused Interval Groups
- And Much, Much, More!
