Ear training and music theory articles, plus conversations in music education & technology
Introducing Musition's new first species counterpoint assessment feature! Species counterpoint is an essential skill for any music student to learn, as it teaches the basics of melody writing and the relationships that are formed between two or more simultaneous melodic lines.
Auralia & Musition now offer a piano roll controller which is great for helping students to visualize and understand key theory concepts. Any students that are used to working in a DAW (Ableton, Logic, Cubase, FL Studio, S1 and many others) will be immediately familiar with the interface and functionality.
Stage one of our piano roll support includes topics like chords, scales and intervals. There's lots more coming in stage two so stay tuned!
Auralia now includes integrated YouTube video support with hundreds of questions. This is great for incorporating pop and contemporary based content in your ear training curriculum. You can embed any YouTube videos in your Auralia questions, worksheets and syllabi, and teach theory and aural concepts using diverse musical examples.. world music, movie soundtracks, video game music, musical theatre, pop music, western art music, and much more.
