Music Theory and Aural Training

Music Theory and Aural Skills working groups give support training and classes directed at music practice and performance excellence.

Aural Skills

Aural training is an essential component of music education. Within the Academy's programmes this is a complimentary subject and an integral part of most courses at the Academy. The training focuses on live and composed music, in connection with each student's principal instrument practice and development.

Students are given the opportunity to specialise in areas such as Intonation, Rythm and Methodology.

Chamber Music, Conducting and Contemporary Music Interpretation, require Aural Training courses.
