Audio Ear Training: Learning the Most Essential Audio Skill!
Developing the aural skills needed to quickly and accurately identify audio qualities by ear alone is one of the most productive educational efforts a student can make in the field of audio today. Forty years ago, David Moulton adapted music ear training techniques used in music conservatories to teach his first audio students. He has implemented versions of this in all of the colleges he has taught at, as well as for the National Public Radio Music Recording Workshops in the 1980s. In 1993, he authored Golden Ears, a stand-alone CD course of audio ear training. In this tutorial, Dave will share some of the things he has learned along the way about how we hear, what it means, and how we can use it for fun and profit.
