How do I get better at musical dictation?

We can improve your musical dictation with a number of tips and tricks. Firstly it is important to master rhythmic dictation. This can be done by completing dictations which are all on the same note in order to target the rhythm and how you percieve it. Gradually we can add in different notes and build up you ability to dictate in this way. To percieve difficult intervals we can use a number of intervals that we already know. The opening two notes of 'My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean,' for example, is an internal of a major 7th, which is often a tricky interval to identify. You can learn to identify these intervals in context, and improve your skills in musical dictation.
