Ear training is another vital component of musical development. It fosters the sense of rhythm, pitch recognition and the ability to write and sing music. It is advisable to start ear training around the same time as lessons on the instrument.
A typical music theory class will include: writing melodic and rhythmic dictations, sight-singing, listening to and notating chord progressions, as well as harmonic analysis of various pieces of music. Russian method teaching materials are used, as well as theory workbooks by Keith Snell and Martha Ashleigh. Students are welcome and encouraged to participate in annual MTNA theory tests and/or ABRSM exams.
The option to do Skype lessons is also available. Students will need a quiet environment with no distractions, a laptop or iPad, headphones, and a good Internet connection.
