This workshop dives into the essential skills required for ear training. Our main focus will be on triads.

First, we’ll review the sound and construction of major and minor chords. We’ll learn how to find the bass note of chords, and identify each interval of the chord. Finally, we’ll apply these techniques to various songs to figure out their chord progressions.
