If you are not using any particular curriculum – don’t worry – Auralia® has a syllabus covering all topics that is suitable for any Ear Training student.
Auralia® is completely flexible, allowing you to create your own syllabuses that match your curriculum.
Your syllabi need only have levels for relevant topics, although there is no limit to the number of levels that you can create.
Using a customised syllabus simplifies the practise screen for your students, ensuring focus on the key areas.
Creating a syllabus is simple, and once done, can be assigned to any of your classes. You can also use your custom syllabi in any tests and courses that you create!
Each of the topics in Auralia® has an accompanying Lessons module, where you can learn about the concepts that you will be practising. Lessons contain text, audio recordings and notation and are an invaluable digital textbook both at home and in the classroom.
Courses allow you to integrate lessons, drills, library questions and tests, providing a structured learning sequence for your students.
Auralia® has many curriculum mapped courses included and ready to go, but you can also create your own! Once your custom courses are created you can assign them to your students and easily monitor their progress.
A key difference with courses is the ability to set thresholds for student progress. Using these thresholds guarantees that students achieve the required score before moving to the next step.
Solfege, Piano and Guitar Input
The onscreen Solfege controller allows students to enter their answers using Solfege note names (Do, Re, Mi, Fa etc) as well as allowing for questions to be displayed on the Solfege controller.
Fixed Do and two variants of Movable Do are supported, with a customised syllabus being supplied for each of the three variations. To further integrate the Solfege controller, many topics have been extensively modified and customised and musical notation also supports the placing of Solfege note names underneath notes.
This allows students to see their correct and incorrect answers in two ways, using both traditional notation and Solfege note names.
Students who are more comfortable working with a keyboard can use the onscreen piano keyboard to easily enter their answers in many topics.
The on-screen guitar fretboard is perfect for guitar players. Note names are highlighted as you mouse over each string and fret position.
