Fun Friday: An Ear-Training Session with Professor Joo Park
November 18, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST
Fun Fridays offer a refreshing mid-day break from work to indulge in physical, mental, or creative activity.
Are you interested in checking your ear skills in rhythm and pitch? Can you pick the notation of the melody you hear? Professor Park Joo created rhythmic and melodic exercises while participants explored their ear skills to listen for the correct notation of rhythm and pitch. It was great for music enthusiasts to develop ear skills!
Facilitator: Joo Park, PhD, is a composer and pianist. She seeks to write music that explores the dual nature of existence: simple and complex, obsessive and impulsive, serious and humorous, and tonal and atonal. She wants to create music that combines fascinating musical traditions, such as tonality and counterpoint, with her approach to timbre, chords, fast-changing meters, and texture. She intends to create music that is positive and easy to listen to, and yet intellectual.
Joo is the author of the book Musical Creativity in Composition and Improvisation, published by Springer. Her CD, Passionate Message, published by Silkheart, contains six of her compositions and piano performances. She received a Ph.D in Composition at the University of Minnesota. She is assistant professor of Composition at Berklee College of Music.
