Berklee in the Classroom: Ear Training

Berklee's Ear Training Department teaches students how to hear and apply melodic, rhythmic, and harmonic musical forms. Ear training assists instrumentalists and vocalists in mastering the technical and stylistic aspects of their instrument, writers in notating music they have created or arranged, and listeners in understanding what they are hearing. Our video team sat in on Ear Training, taught by John Funkhouser, where students learn to connect sound with written music. Watch the videos below to get a taste of the class and meet Funkhouser, department chair Allan Chase, and three students.
