Aural Skills for All Musicians

Aural Skills for All Musicians

“To hear with the eyes – to see with the ears” – Zoltan Kodaly
Invaluable for any instrumentalist, singer or composer! Aural Skills is perfect for all musicians – from teens-adults and from beginner to University levels – to strengthen musicianship, ear tests and sight reading for improved exam results and/or further develop musical independence and understanding.

Rooted in the Kodaly method, this course cultivates aural skills and a deeper understanding of musical structure through singing in solfege, listening/transcribing, and using a variety of progressive rhythmic, harmonic and melodic exercises.
If you are new to Aural Skills, please contact the office at 604-534-2848 to learn more.
