Listening Modules

 

*This listening modules are EXCLUSIVELY for our “Learn Piano Lesson Singapore” students only.

As music students, we often focus on technique and precision in playing. Listening to how one articulates the phrasing of the melody is just as important as a clean performance.

listeningTo fully express the music that the composer intended, it is important for every musician to train his/her ear to the sensitivity of each sound and nuance. Just as important is to fully understand the background of the composer, the period in which the composer belongs to as well as the compositional style and character of that period.

These listening examples are not an exhaustive list of pieces and composers, but focuses on prominent composers and the 4 different genres of the History of Western Music. Some important compositions will be highlighted for your information and knowledge.
