Tonicization in melodic sight-singing and dictation

Postby koeno100 » Jul 22, 2019 12:51 pm

Any plans on adding tonicization in the melodich sight-singing and dictation exercises? So basically, adding chromatic notes in there that temporarily make an other tone but the tonic sound like the tonic?

I must admit I wasn't familiar with the concept. This can be already achieved with custom melodies imporeted via MusicXML, but it's a fastidious working process, so the ideal solution would be that it is added as part of the built-in curriculum. We will keep your suggestion for future developments. Thank you very much for your feedback.

They often appear in entrance exams of Music Colleges, at least here in the Netherlands!

For example, this is what tonicizations look like in the entrance exam of the Conservatory of Amsterdam: https://www.conservatoriumvanamsterdam.nl/media/cva/docs/toelating/Toelatingsexamen_Solfege_en_gehoortraining_2016.pdf (Page 6, 8 and 9) It's in Dutch but music notes aren't ;)
