LCoM launches Games to Improve Reading and more
Jazz Tutors at Leeds College of Music have devised a game to improve reading skills and are set to launch more games soon.
Although the initial game works on reading rhythms, plans are underway to launch games which focus on areas like interval recognition, comping transcription and polyrhythms.
The idea behind these resources is to create realistic exercises that will help you consolidate fundamental performance issues," says Jazz pathway leader, Jamil Sheriff. "Whether the exercises are focusing on rhythmic, harmonic or melodic areas of your assimilation of language, the nature of the recorded material will give you a contextualised learning experience, replicating familiar textures from a live performance setting.
The games are available for anyone to play and can be found on the LCoM website.
