Ear Training

Body

The aim of the ear training program at The Juilliard School is to equip students with thorough skills in rhythm, pitch, and musical structures in order to promote confident, fast, and accurate learning. Through a guided series of precision exercises, students come to understand their roles as soloists, as collaborators in small or large ensembles, and as creators in transmitting to an audience the emotional content of the music. The fixed-do system—primarily because of its systematic approach to both tonal and atonal music—is employed to develop all pitch-related skills.
