The idea of the this four-volume series was to collect original dictations authored by several experienced ear training specialists teaching in the Academy of Music in Gdansk.
Vol. 1 is focused around a typical “melodic” dictation within the tonal system. The dictations are organized by texture, from one- to four-part. Vol. 2 revolves around harmony, starting from tonal music with alterations, dissonant chords, suspensions, modulations etc., and reaching extended tonality and atonality. Vol. 3 is dedicated solely to the output of Eugeniusz Głowski, a professor of composition and ear training, who throughout his long teaching career has accumulated an extensive collection of original dictations of various kinds. Vol. 4 is meant to develop the skills of pitch recognition in atonality in one- and two-part texture.
Each volume is supplemented by a CD, providing audio material performed by various instruments / ensembles. The series may be used in classroom by ear training teachers, as well as by students for self-training purposes. To make it particularly accessible and practical for self-training learners, a set of worksheets is enclosed with each volume.

Be a part of our european project !

This European project (KA 203 Strategic Partnership) created by Salvatore Gioveni promotes cross-border collaboration in the field of Music Theory through sharing knowledge and transferring pedagogical innovation. It thus responds to a lack of centralised source and framework to deepen reflection by means of cross-disciplinary study at European and international level.

There is a significant wealth of educational practices from one country to another in this sector, especially in terms of harmonic musical notation and analysis. However, HMEI's are facing the nonexistence of a European network for pedagogical staff in Music Theory so far. To improve the situation, the project will among other things develop several intellectual outputs such as Online Platform (IO 1), an EU Bibliography (IO 2), a Repository Courses (IO 3), a Multilingual Glossary (IO 4) and an Exchange Online Learning Platform.

Besides the Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles as leader and manager of the project, the following partner institutions are involved: Music Academy S. Moniuszki Gdańsk (Gdańsk, Poland), F. Liszt Academy of Music Budapest (Budapest, Hungary), Estonian Academy for Music and Theatre (Tallinn, Estonia), HfMTh "Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy" (Leipzig, Germany).
