E Aural Trainer – How to Sing a lower part suitable for Grade 7 Aural

Want a DISTINCTION in YOUR next ABRSM Exam? E Aural Trainer – Singing a lower part for Grade 7 Aural.

In Grade 7 you will need to sing the lower of 2 parts played by the examiner. The skills needed for this are very much like those in Grade 6 in that you should try to screen out the upper part and focus on the lower. Also you should try to hum to yourself the starting note that the examiner gives you at the beginning. Don’t forget, that instead of singing you always have the option of playing back what you hear on your instrument – see this video for more practice

In this video you will get four examples. First you will hear a key chord, and your starting note which you should try to hum before the test starts. Then you will hear the tests played twice each, the first time with the two voices equally balanced and the second time with the lower emphasised for some extra help if you couldn’t quite get it the first time. Note, that in an ABRSM Grade 7 Aural Test, you will get the test played twice anyway.

  1. Not the best at this, are there any tips for distinguishing the upper part from the lower part? Thanks in advance.

      There are no short cuts to developing a melodic memory. The more practice you do it will improve. You could start with using melodic memory tests from the lower grades (in my E Aural Trainer playlist) and I also have an extra hours worth of Grade 7 PREMIUM practice tests here

    2. It is hard to memorize the parts. I have a much higher sound and the teacher keeps yelling at me to sing lower. I can’t its impossible. I wish I had Taehyung’s (V) voice so I don’t have to get yelled at.

      You can find out on my personal channel. Check the bottom of the home page of this channel 😉

  2. No matter how much I’ve cleaned my ear , I still can’t listen to the lower part . Damn they’re making life so complicated

  3. I battle with this because the lower parts are often too low for me to sing! How do you get around that??? I cant’ necessarily concentrate on the low part while trying to put it up an octave too – which then often goes a bit high!

    1. This was actually deliberate. To repeat the question EXACTLY as you get in the exam, ABRSM regard as their “copyright” – so my video although preparing you adequately for an exam, will not repeat exactly what the examiner will say.
