Having been a Suzuki violin student from the age of 3, I have had extensive ear training from a very young age. I personally believe that with good solid aural skills, many other areas of musical development fall into place much more easily. In addition, having and perfecting these skills can make a good musician into a great musician by fostering confidence and in turn understanding more about other musicians and their instruments
I believe that Ear Training is essential for all musicians. With a Master of Music from the Mannes School of Music, I am well-equipped to help you learn this skill. Lessons will include rhythmic and melodic dictation, sight-reading/sight-singing, pitch matching, and interval/chord training. Students of all ages and levels are welcome. My music teachers have greatly impacted my life and my goal is to inspire my students in a similar way. Everyone has a unique learning style and I tailor my teaching to each individual. I love to teach and enjoy helping others achieve their personal musical goals. It would be a pleasure to help you with ear training!
Using a Kodaly based approach, students will learn to identify melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic elements and ultimately to be able to read music from written notation. Ear training encompasses perceiving how sounds are moving so that it can be sung, notated, or played back. Conversely, training the ear enables one to mentally hear notated music in advance of playing it. This valuable skill speeds all aspects of musical learning.
The Semper Method uses games and exercises that develop Ear Training. The system is Listen, Sing, Clap, Play, Read & Write. You start with listening at a whole new level. The program goes at exactly your speed. We have an entire program that will help you to refine and develop your ear, for singing, playing and listening. An integrated approach: Music almost always involves several skills. Below are some of the complementary skills that I can help you with. In my Semper Method, we always address several of them at every session. For example, we record, sing and play all the time. To sing you should be able to pick out intervals at the piano, or better yet, accompany yourself and everyone needs some music theory. So it really is all one thing.

Originally employed and still used in serious study of music. Especially composition but also performance, this art improves the condition of both ability in music and health in life. Can perfect pitch be developed? Many will tell you that it can, but the truth is that it can be improved, approached and at times even lost after you have it. So much of our hearing depends on the stress levels in our lives. Tension diminishes our powers and our health and a self aware, relaxed state of mind opens our hearts and our ears. I teach you how to listen and hear as well as how to absorb what you hear into the deep understanding of sound, music and emotion. My background as an internationally known and active performer, teacher, composer and educator as well as naturally being gifted with the rare quality of perfect pitch allows as an opportunity to bring you beyond your goals and into a place where you will hear life and its glory as never before! I utilize the classic technique of Solfegio as well as composer's technique of hearing within. Most importantly, it is as fun as it is effective. I also work with children with special needs as this is a remarkably effective way of improving the health and mind. Regardless of condition, the mind will find a new focus, concentration and improved memory as well as stamina. Depending on your goals, we will cover identification of pitch, interval, rhythm and coloration of sound as well as harmony. I look forward to hearing from you (excuse the pun) and to meeting you very soon!
