1-to-1 support with all things aural. If you struggle with identifying cadences, time signatures, singing a harmony part back, or identifying changes in pitch or rhythm by ear, then this will help you. Students typically sign up for a term or two of aural lessons, to support their practical instrumental, GCSE or A-level exams.
