Here are some ways to prepare for the AIM Aural Skills Exercises and AIM Aural Skills Tests.
AIM Melody Playback
To memorize and play back a melody after it is played for you three times, listen the first two times and determine the following:
- The starting note (one of the notes from six notes of the scale)
- The general direction of the melody.
- The patterns formed by the notes: broken triads, intervals, stepping patterns, repeated notes, etc.
- The overall rhythmic design.
Then after a third playing, it will be easier to play back the melody from memory.
One of the best ways to remember the sound of different intervals is to sing them. To prepare for Aural skills exercises, play the first note of an interval, hear the second note in your mind, then sing or hum the second note out loud. Check your accuracy by playing the second note. For some intervals it may also help to use a song clue or relate the notes to the major scale.
Try to sing the chords up and down. Listen not only the color and tension of each particular chord, but also to the quality of the 3rds that form the chord.
