Ear Training Classes at NYJW!
(Published: December 17, 2015)

Ear Training at New York Jazz Workshop!


After a very successful launch of two 10-week long classes last October, the New York Jazz Workshop is very excited to announce the continuation of two Ear Training Courses for instrumentalists and vocalists of all levels. Taught by internationally celebrated artist-educator Richard Boukas, The New Programs will start on Saturday, January 16, 2016.


"Dynamic Ear Training for the Contemporary Musician Level 1"


This course is designed to develop our musical perception skills to function at the same level as our instrumental and vocal abilities, thereby achieving a more balanced, dynamic musicianship. Staple musical elements include: melodic and harmonic intervals, modes and scales, triad and seventh arpeggios and chords, chord progressions and core voice-leading principles. Using comprehensive handouts with companion audio files, a strong emphasis is placed on the voice for mastering these elements. Basic sight-singing skills are taught to develop vocal agility and more rapid assimilation of course materials.

"Dynamic Ear Training for the Contemporary Musician Level 2"



Designed to continue from Level One fall trimester, this course develops our musical perception skills to function at the same level as our instrumental and vocal abilities, thereby achieving a more balanced, dynamic musicianship. Staple musical elements include: melodic minor modes, altered triads, seventh arpeggios and chords in all inversions (five basic types and altered types), chord progressions derived from actual pieces (using root position and inverted harmonies), tritone substitutions, voice-leading principles for two-voice shell and seventh voicings. Course materials include intensive practice routines with companion audio files and select listening excerpts. Constructive Listening skills are cultivated to selectively focus on specific instruments and their role in jazz, classical, Brazilian and Pop music recordings. The voice is used intensively for practicing routines, single lines and group harmonies. Sightsinging of jazz, classical and Brazilian melodies is integrated to develop vocal agility and offer contextual illustrations of staple musical elements.

Both 10-week courses will start on January 16th. These classes will be part of NYJW's new trimester series, following a slightly different format than their other workshops. Each course will be a 10-class weekly series available as a complete package for the participant to experience from beginning to end.
