Understand what you're hearing!
Ear training entails cultivating an inner understanding and conception of music. Through ear training, students can learn how to identify the pitches, rhythms, and harmonies in music and sounds they hear around them. Ear training can also help develop the ability to look at a written piece of music and know what it sounds like! Most ear training comes in two distinct categories: transcription, aka the categorization of what you hear around you (learning to write down what you hear) and sight singing, aka learning how to hear sounds internally and reproduce them with your voice (learning how to hear what is written down)
About Matt B.

Hi! I'm Matt, a saxophonist and composer. I'm a graduate of Manhattan School of Music's Jazz Program (BA '18). I teach saxophone to people of all ages and skill levels. In addition, I teach independent ear training and music theory lessons (I also factor ear training and music theory into saxophone lessons if students are interested).

Matt is an engaging teacher who is insightful and accomodating. I'm glad I found him. He is going to help me learn my favorite song, and for now we're doing a lot basic learning and exercises. He's very versatile, seems to make up teaching methods on the spot as my needs arise. My kind of guy.

Matt Burkett is a great music instructor. My son has been his student for about 2 years already . Matt helped my son improve his sound, his low notes, and sight reading. But most importantly he motivates my son to practice more and have fun playing his saxophone. Highly recommend.
