Abstract: MUSICAL EAR is a new, unique ear training program connected to the music editing program Sibelius. By its pedagogical disposition and its high musical quality, MUSICAL EAR is meant to be an attractive teaching aid for all those who want to develop their ear training in combination with theoretical understanding. The construction of the program is based on a combination of pedagogical and artistic ideas where “real” music is the center of attention. MUSICAL EAR is based on approximately 200 newly written compositions/tunes including the styles of pop, rock, jazz, Latin, tune, folk music and classical music at different levels of difficulty. All the music is available in the program as mp3 files.

MUSICAL EAR is very easy to use and adapted for the inexperienced as well as to those who are more advanced in their music studies. The program works equally well for self-study and teacher-guided studies. The main elements revolve around the notation of melody, rhythm, and harmony, but the program is more than that. Focusing on ear training, it clearly relates to general music theory, music harmony and arranging, deepened music listening, style and genre knowledge, easier analysis exercises, and composing. Ways of notating for often used instruments and ensembles are also presented. In addition the program contains examples of further literature studies as well as online-references.

When working with MUSICAL EAR you come across a great number of music terms and concepts of music theory as well as different ways of working with voice leading and arranging. The student’s own efforts at composing are stimulated through exercises that derive from the basic idea of each music example. The creative process helps to establish and confirm the achieved knowledge. Additionally, you may find in MUSICAL EAR, grouped for different levels, a large number of detached ear training exercises in melody, rhythm, and harmony without any direct connection to a particular composition. MUSICAL EAR has been developed by Björn Roslund and Carl-Axel Andersson, lecturers of Music Theory at Malmö Academy of Music, Lund University, Sweden. The authors who will present the material and its potential at this workshop composed all the music.

3. Cardoso de Araujo, Rosane. "Musical Practice with Brazilian Sounds and Rhythms: A Proposal for Teachers´ Instruction From Cacilda Barbosa´s Ear Training Program" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ISME World Conference and Commission Seminars, China Conservatory of Music (CC) and Chinese National Convention Centre (CNCC), Beijing, China, <Not Available>. 2019-10-16 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p439448_index.html>
Publication Type: Abstract
Abstract: The pedagogical proposal formulated by Cacilda Barbosa is composed of studies for ear training, voice and piano, whose melodic and rhythmic construction is based on Brazilian music elements. Identifying the connotation of the elements described as "Brazilian" in this pedagogical proposal (Paz, 2000) we can reflect on the basis of Bourdieu's (1984) and Turino´s (1999) thoughts about the idea that music is produced and is socially structured through the outsourcing of its provisions, a proposal of public domain. Thus, some typical ways of understanding a particular culture, in this case, Brazilian music, can be conceived with specific characteristics from the observation of elements that are recognized as individuals within a specific musical discourse. In this sense, this paper´s goal is to analyze data that characterizes elements as "Brazilian" and describe the way of teaching and the music of the author. The methodology employed is the analysis of rhythmic and melodic parameters observed in some piano studies (from Diorama work), as well as data collection of the didactical approach by Cacilda Barbosa. As a result it is observed that systematic study of rhythm, using the recurring patterns in typical Brazilian musical genres, as well as the study of phrasing, linked to a national repertoire of songs, provides to the student familiarity with a song full of Brazilian culture elements. Therefore, the analysis of pedagogical proposals that use musical elements characteristic of different countries/peoples may bring significant contributions to music education and teacher training in a multicultural context.

Abstract: The Spanish and Mexican period archives of New Mexico contain numerous reports related to military campaigns against the various tribes that constantly raided New Mexican communities. These documents provide descriptions of practices that served as the body counts on which the success or failure of these campaigns was often measured. This paper will review some of the practices reported by the Spanish and their Pueblo allies in colonial New Mexico in which heads, scalps and ears were often used as proof of body count.
