Proposal Summary:

Like foreign language acquisition, aural skills acquisition depends on discriminating minimally different stimuli, but current learning materials do not necessarily facilitate this discrimination. I propose to meet these challenges in two ways:

(1) having students record keyboard exercises at the new computer lab for the School of Music and submit them for individual feedback, using a program called SmartMusic, and

(2) having students use electronic flash cards that allow them to focus on discriminating minimally different stimuli, using a free app called Anki.
