Having this skill will enable me to be more of an asset rather than a liability in choral situations. So, I searched and found Jody through Wyzant. Jody makes it fun, yet a challenging experience. Jody is extremely patient! Jody has worked extra hard with me utilizing various techniques to get me to understand the concepts of sight-singing. It is never stagnant or by rote; Jody really keeps it interesting. In short, Jody is an awesome teacher.
Ethan has done an excellent job walking me through topics like counterpoint, roman numeral analysis, and sight singing--things that I found too difficult to continue studying on my own. He is a skilled performer and teacher and a hard worker, offering just enough homework to keep me going from lesson to lesson, and he's always able to pick up right where we left off. When I needed help understanding and completing my own songs, he was happy to help there as well. A truly fantastic teacher!
Margot is a great tutor. The aural skills class involves three coordinated sides of the subject: sight singing, rhythmic training and music dictation. Clear explanations and exercises calibrated to the progress made and problems encountered make her system very effective.
