PITCH TRAINING (aural or ear training)
Pitch is simply how high or low a sound is, but accurate pitching is equivalent in importance to rhythm in order to understand and reproduce tonal music. Pitch is much more than the ability to stay in tune, it is the ability to know what note a musician is playing and to be able to reproduce that note instantly on an instrument. There are two main systems for musicians to determine pitch - relative pitch and perfect or absolute pitch, there are also related strategies such as pitch memory and vocal tension pitch. We look at all these systems. Pitch is a speciality study at Maroubra Music School. In most music studies pitch will be an aspect we study because it is so important.
Pitch can be taken by itself or in conjunction with any other music study you are doing at Maroubra Music School and is available to singles, doubles and groups.
