Being able to quickly learn music by ear and retain it, to accurately play or sing what you are hearing in your head, and to recognize and respond to what others play in real time are among the most important performance skills for contemporary musicians. Using call-and-response techniques in an ensemble-like setting, instrumentalists and vocalists will build their ear skills, connecting ear training to realistic performance situations on their instrument and developing greater acuracy of hearing and musical memory. Material includes melodies, harmony and counterpoint parts, and bass lines in a variety of styles.
