Do you wish you had a better cognitive framework in place to understand the chords in a song you like or want to improvise over? This class helps students develop the ability to identify bass lines, chord qualities, and chord progressions by ear. Essential skills for musicians in all genres. Weekly coursework includes a range of aural exercises that involve hearing the bass lines and common chord progressions, plus blues changes, singing arpeggios, hearing “guide tones,” and more.   Requirements: at least minimal knowledge of music notation, access to a piano or keyboard during class (a virtual keyboard on a smartphone or tablet is OK), and willingness to sing in front of others! Required Text: The Real Easy Ear Training Book by Roberta Radley (Sher Music)  

This class meets ONLINE using the ZOOM platform.
