Aural Comprehension III is a one-credit course, building on the foundations you have created in AC I and II. The two weekly class sessions will be devoted to group work in sight-singing and dictation: melodic, rhythmic and harmonic -- and in listening to longer segments of work to sharpen your perception of musical form. You will be expected to keep up a regular practice of these skills outside of class. In addition, we will arrange tutorials (at least three per semester) for individual work and assessment.
The musical materials of AC III will be taken mostly from 19th-century sources,
reinforcing your work in Music Theory and Music History III. We will also work with more chromatic music of the 18th century, as well as jazz, popular music and relevant world cultures.
