    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.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a great start into being able to discern different pitches and to improve your overall musical talent.

    Course highlights:

    Being able to learn from step one what the heck notes are. Learning about Solfege (Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La, Ti, Do) and note pitch, and how they relate. Learning how to tell the differences between different note rhythms (Whole note, Half note, Quarter note, etc). Everything about this class is a highlight. And those are all the things you will learn about, as well as working on your singing voice.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always ask for help if you need it. Your classmates are willing to help too, even if they don't look it. And if you ask a question, you might help out others who had the same question.
