Crack the code of music: learn how to recognise what you hear and write it down and how to vocalise and hear music as you read from the page.

For instrumentalists and singers, this course provides a structured approach to the understanding and recognition of intervals and chords; scales, modes and melodic lines; developing practical skills in dictation and transcription; leading to a confident basis for sight-reading, improvisation and the development of melodic and harmonic line.

Classes will be held in a shared group context, using sol-fa as a tool. This method helps students to develop relative pitch, so that they are able to identify relationships between melodies and chords. It also assists with sight-reading for both singers and instrumentalists.

Level 1 classes will cover:
Vocal warm-ups
Scales (major, minor and chromatic)
Intervals (all to major 9th)
Chords (triads and 7th chords)
A take-down (working out simple melodies and rhythms and notating )

Practice sight singing in the keys of C, G and F major
