On musical learning and practice in higher music education
In this anthology, five Norwegian and two Finnish music educators explore various aspects of aural skills awareness and musical aural training in higher music education. The first three articles focus on aural perspectives in a progressive line: from applicant, to student, to professional musician. The following three articles deal with learning strategies that may be helpful in acquiring and perfecting aural awareness and skills. Lastly, six selected sight-singing textbooks for choral singers are presented. Read together, this anthology provides insight into different aspects of the musical ear – as a phenomenon, as a discipline, and in function.
