April 2013

 

Sunday, April 7 – I’ll present a workshop ‘Music Transcription Techniques’ at The Jazzschool, Berkeley, CA, 2:00 – 4:00 pm.

Transcribing music – listening to a recording and writing down what you hear – is an essential skill for every musician. Among its many benefits, transcribing is a powerful ear-training exercise and a useful tool for learning improvisation and arranging. This workshop includes an overview of traditional pencil-and-paper techniques, a demonstration of software tools which aid the process (Sibelius and Transcribe!), and tips and tricks for developing your transcribing abilities. It’s suitable for both beginning transcribers and those with transcription experience who’d like to add computer tools to their workflow.
