Ear Training and Transcription 3
The module “ear training and transcription” intends to facilitate analytical listening skills combined with music theory. This seminar aims at developing the skills to capture individual musical parameters, to notate music, and to reproduce written melodic and rhythmic notation.
The seminar has two thematic priorities. In ear training, the students deepen their mental representations by productively engaging with their voice (solmisation) and body sounds. They also improve their perceptual skills by aural tasks. In transcription, students learn to transcribe songs and to write sheet music with the help of notation software. This includes aspects like instrument-specific phrasing.
