We are considering revamping our Musicianship/Sight-Singing/Ear Training sequence. I may put together a survey to find out what people are doing/have done at other schools. But I have a recollection that others may have created similar surveys recently. If so, we would be interested in looking at the data collected, if possible.
Among questions we are considering:
How frequently do classes meet, and for how long?
How are these classes integrated, or not, with written theory and keyboard classes?
What topics are covered?
What sight-singing methods are used (fixed do, movable do, numbers, etc,)?
How much attention is given to music outside of the Western classical tradition--pop/jazz/folk/non-Western?
If you have done a similar survey, we would be interested in seeing the data.
If no recent survey of this sort has been done, I will try to construct one, distribute it, and share the results with those who are interested.
