The effects of pitch discrimination training on achievement in melodic interval discrimination

  title={The effects of pitch discrimination training on achievement in melodic interval discrimination},
  author={Christian Sebastian Loh},
The improvement of aural skills through ear training is part of the formative education received by beginning college music students. Current practice in many college music programs, including the University of Georgia, relies heavily on computer-assisted instruction (CAI) to develop and improve the listening skills of college music students through pitch discrimination tasks such as interval identification. Despite the number of inquiries into the effects of Web-based instruction (WBI) for…
