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.
