AURAL SKILLS FOCUS OF CENTENNIAL LECTURE
Dr. Jeffrey Meyer, associate professor, music, will present a Centennial Scholars Program lecture, “Aural Skills: New Strategies and Outcomes for Integrated Musicianship,” at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 3 in Birkeland Alumni Lounge.
Meyer and co-inquirers Peter Graff ’11, Sioux Falls, S.D., and Joseph Trucano ’11, Brainerd, Minn., evaluated and tested current best practices in aural skills pedagogy, considered and tested new approaches to the acquisition of aural skills, and determined the foundational elements and essential outcomes in a music student’s aural skills experience. The elements essential to an effective aural skills curriculum include a rich mixture of long-standing practices alongside a range of new practices that effectively meet the needs of music students today.
