The instrumental music education is incomplete without spending time and effort on practicing aural training, improving one’s knowledge of music theory, harmony and form structure. We teach all grades of music theory syllabuses with ABRSM and Rockschool examination boards. We also teach counterpoint, harmony and jazz harmony.
"Seeing - listening – playing"
As Kodaly said, “a good musician should hear what he sees, and he should visualise what he hears”. In other words, a student should be trained to be able to read, listen to and understand music just as he reads, listens to and understands his mother tongue.
The ability to internalise music and to reproduce it or interpret written music with a minimum of preparation can, of course, be developed. We would strongly recommend our students to incorporate elements of aural training, such as singing scales, random notes and intervals, chords, sight-singing, in a daily practicing routine.
The classes take place every half-term. The program is a combination of creative workshops on music literature, history of music and musical instruments, exploring centuries of music development.
