Introduction to Auralia

With 43 topics, advanced customisation, record keeping, lessons and courses features, Auralia is by far the most comprehensive musical ear training software package!

Auralia's drill based learning is a fun and easy way to practise, assess and teach ear training.
 
 

Practising

Auralia has 43 ear training topics, each with carefully sequenced levels that gradually introduce students to more difficult drills.  This approach allows you to use Auralia with beginners and advanced students, with each student learning at their own pace.

Levels and topics are grouped into syllabuses, which are mapped to curriculum.  Teachers can very quickly create their own syllabus with custom levels, ensuring that students practice the most relevant content.

  • Self paced learning
  • High quality feedback
  • Tapping, singing and notation entry
  • Automatic grading
  • Complete reporting
  • Syllabus and topic customisation

When a student answers incorrectly they always receive quality feedback, giving them the chance to review the question and their answer.

This will also often include playback as well as notation and text explanations.

 

 

 

The way questions are answered varies from topic to topic.  Some may ask to tap back a rhythm whilst others may simply require a multiple choice answer.  Notation entry is common and there are also Solfege, Piano and Guitar controllers available in many topics.

 
 

Content

The content library contains hundreds of audio recordings, notation excerpts and questions for your students to practise. Teachers can import their own items into the library, using them to create high quality questions for their students.

 

 

Question creation is very flexible, with excellent control over how content is displayed and played back to the student.

  • Notation entry – transcription & dictation
  • Notation highlighting – notes, bars and parts
  • Chord symbol entry – figured or contemporary
  • Multiple choice – text, image, audio or notation answers
  • Tapping – imitation, reading & tap along

 

Notation

Auralia also features an integrated notation editor.  Unlimited parts and bars, control over beaming and grouping, anacrusis support and ties allow you to create examples quickly and easily.

You can even import and export MusicXML, allowing you to reuse any existing notation that you may have.

 

 

Learning with Auralia

Each of Auralia’s topics 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 electronic textbook both at home and in the classroom.

 

 

 

Auralia-Lesson-Pitch

 

Singing

Auralia has pitch recognition technology, allowing students to sing their answers in many of the topics.  A new microphone setup wizard helps students set their input levels, ensuring accurate assessment.

  • Pitch matching
  • Interval, chord and scale singing
  • Sight singing

We also now allow students to hear back their singing after it’s assessed, an absolutely fantastic tool for student review!

Courses & Tests

Courses & tests are a great way for teachers to control student activity and deliver curriculum relevant content.  They give the teacher absolute control over the number and type of questions that students will attempt.

 

Auralia-Test-Editor

 

 

When creating tests, the questions may come from any syllabus, topic or level, and you can also include library questions.  Test scores are stored separately and tests can be taken multiple times if required.

Courses are sequenced pathways that include questions and lessons.  When setting questions in courses, the teacher can set thresholds that must be hit before a student can progress to the next stage.

 

Usage

Tests and courses are can be used for many tasks, but here are some common examples.

  • Grading tests
  • End of semester exams
  • Entrance examinations
  • Exam preparation
  • Classroom worksheets
  • Homework

Syllabus Customisation

Your syllabi need only have levels for relevant topics, although there is no limit to the number of levels that you can create.

Students only see topics that have levels, simplifying their practise screen and 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 your and tests and courses that you create!

 

Auralia-Syllabus

 

Lessons

The lessons module has an entry for each of Auralia’s topics.  These lessons are effectively a comprehensive digital textbook, containing text, audio recording and notation excerpts, with playback.

Topics such as Chord Recognition and Scales also feature a ‘reference’ page as part of their lessons, where all chords and scales contained within Auralia can be viewed and played back. These reference pages will also automatically show any customised Chords or Scales that you may have entered into Auralia.

Courses

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, a much requested feature!  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

Solfege

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.

Teachers often wish to set a particular task for their students, be it an ear training quiz or formal assessment.
