Weekly Dictation

Weekly dictation is a great opportunity to practice your overall sight reading skills.    There is no better practice than dictation.

Each week, choose a dictation exercise to complete. There are audio clips posted here for you to write out on staff paper. Please do not use any sound reference like keyboard, guitar or pitch pipe. You may however, stop the player as needed. The key will be given along with time signature and how many measures are expected. 2 measures of countoff will be given. 1 measure of clicks, then the next measure with the key note given. Tunes are posted on Monday morning of each week.

You may check your answers by going to the “Answers To Dictation Link” on the left sidebar. Look for the corresponding date or letter from your dictation exercise.
