Description - Aural Skills Acquisition by Gary S. Karpinski

Music listeners who understand what they hear are thinking in music. Music readers who understand and visualize what they read are thinking in music. This book investigates the various ways musicians acquire those skills through an examination of the latest research in music perception and cognition, and music theory, along with centuries of insight from music theorists, composers, and performers. Aural skills are the focus; the author also works with common works with common problems in both skills teaching and skills acquisition.
