Refine aural perception skills

Refined aural skills are essential for singers and musicians who want to work at the highest levels of their craft.  As a professional musician, I KNOW when someone has well developed aural skills and when they don't.  When they don't, things are slow and clumsy and awkward.  When they have great aural skills, it's a pleasure working with them!  This unit is all about taking your ear to another level!
