Musicianship Studies I-IV

Ear-training:

Like a good chef with a good sense of taste; a good musician should have a good sense of hearing. Ear-training is one of the vital components in Musicianship Studies. Students will learn how to listen to rhythms and melodies and repeat with their primary instrument: their voice. This is extremely powerful to help students to make music using their secondary instrument – musical instrument of their choice.

Music Theory:

Music Theory is another important module in Musicianship Studies.

Hence, students can have a more accurate and thorough interpretation of the music they play.
