This course is made up of five appointments between the student and instructor, either each day for a week or over a number of weeks. In these one-on-one sessions the instructor will spend approximately 45 minutes discussing the following areas of theory.
- ear training
- rhythmic and melodic dictation
- principles of harmony
Each day, there will be a feedback time in which the student shares observations and asks questions. At the end of the week, there will be a “test” which incorporates all of the areas of study from the week. All of this is done without “homework.” The instructor will make suggestions so that the student can continue to utilize these new skills after the conclusion of the class.
