Ear Training and Improvisation @ The Lit and Phil.

Led by Dr Paul Edis, these four sessions are designed for any musician interested in developing their improvisation and aural skills. Based on the Aural Perception course that Paul taught at the 
University of York, each 90 minute session is intended to reflect the needs of those involved, and to develop a sophisticated approach to improvisation and ear training with analysis and discussion of 
music from Handel through to the present day. 

Each session will give specific theory and ideas that might help y
ou in your improvisation and ear
training, and if you want to bring your instrument along, there’ll be a friendly and supportive
atmosphere in which you can put some of these new ideas into practice.
This is not just a course designed for jazz musicians or enthusiasts! The approach is to look at the
fundamental elements in music and in improvisation and to see the similarities between different
genres and periods of music, and not just the differences.
Admission is FREE, and all are welcome!
If you are interested, please could you contact Paul, and answer the following 2 questions!

1) do you play an instrument? If so, then what?
2) how would you describe your abilities - complete beginner, some technique and decent ears, good technique but rubbish ears, supremely confident!
