    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Helps you understand the rhythms of music and hearing the pitches for future times. Understanding the song in a professional sense is a key in live performances and recording. When you are brought into a recording session you are expected to quickly grasp at the direction, attitude, and where you belong in the mix. Hearing the song and then having a great understanding starts with ear training.

    Course highlights:

    To sing out the notes and rhythms.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To just have repetition and have someone play a rhythm and notate it to the best you can and then compare.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because although it is tough, it is definetly worth it. I got tutoring to help me through it and I passed.

    Course highlights:

    Reid made the class fun because his personality is very contagious. He is assertive yet very easy going. He lets us know in advance that we might need a tutor. I also learned to be patient with the material.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready for a challenge and have an open mind. Do not be ashamed if you have to get a tutor. Tutoring sessions can actually be fun if you have a person who understands how to teach you. Don't be afraid to switch tutors if you aren't understanding the first person you were assigned. You can also study with friend's but make sure you're studying and not just hanging out.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this class with Gary Gratz. It is a required class, and also helpful to take along with Keyboard Lab I and Music Theory I. It is best to take it in your first semester because it serves as a core class.

    Course highlights:

    Gary Gratz is a great teacher and he is very helpful. If you need help, he will gladly help you. I learned how to train my ear to hear pitches better than I had prior to being in the class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not take this class for granted. If Ear Training I appears easy for you, Ear Training II is much harder. Ear Training courses in general are the hardest classes I have taken at McNally Smith College of Music, however it is essential to have the knowledge that the classes offer.
