Stepping It Up: Adding Arpeggios and Three Note Dictations
1 of 3

Visual Feedback Copy

How should I use the visual feedback?

One very successful strategy is to leave the repetitions at 2 and do the dictation in the following way:

• Listen to the new phrase, sing or play it back.

• Now, listen again and watch the visual feedback at the same time. This way you can correct yourself if need be.

• Finally, sing or play back the phrase again.

In other words, don’t look, then look, then don’t look. This takes a few minutes of practice. Once you can do your dictations perfectly, then stop looking all together and let your ear be your guide.
