Event Description

When teaching by ear, it is so much more than just hearing the pitches and rhythms. We need to guide the students musical listening and technical development to hear and develop to a competent, professional “sound” level. How and when we do those things are laid out in this course step by step to help your students have less of a “student sound”.

Price: $275.00

6 enrolled out of 20 maximum.
