Sight Singing & Recording with Auralia 7

Now your students can record and submit audio assessments directly in Auralia!

This is perfect for sight singing drills, keyboard and piano tests, plus developing imitation and improvisation skills.  You could even use it for submitting performance recordings (entrance exams etc), sight-reading or sight-transposition questions.

Have your students practice their choir parts whilst hearing the other parts as an accompaniment, improvise a solo over a 12-bar blues, or sing the root notes of a chord progression.

Question Modes

Play or Sing

Simply have your students sing a displayed score. This could be a scale, chord, interval or a melody.  A tonic reference and a metronome count in can be provided.  If enabled by the instructor, students can have multiple attempts, and listen back to their answer before submitting.

Sight Singing

Play or Sing Along

In this mode, students can sing along to any kind of notation or audio based accompaniment. This could be a melody with a simple piano accompaniment, or perhaps the upper part of a two-part melody, or the bass line of a four-part chorale. Or students could record themselves singing their favourite pop song along with a backing track, improvising over a blues progression, or laying down a guitar riff to a drum groove.

Solfege Matrix


Have your students respond to Auralia and play, sing or clap back a short melody or rhythm.  Get students to play back a guitar riff, bass line, or a 'lick'.  Or perhaps improvise a 'response' to a played melody.  The source material can be a notation file or audio file which may be drawn directly from the library, or imported.

Timed Questions

When you assign these questions to your students in a worksheet, you can set a timer on the entry, giving each student a restricted amount of time to view any notation and then submit their answer.

Student audio submissions can be assessed in the Grading area, allowing you to assign a mark and provide feedback for your students.
