I would like to take this opportunity to invite you and others to enjoy a special recital, on February 25, 7:30 p.m., at Cook Recital Hall, of the MSU Music Building, 333 West Circle Drive, East Lansing, MI.
Two wonderful musicians will be joining me: Flautist, Richard Sherman, and violinist, Walter Verdehr. Our program features works by Fauré, Saint-Saëns, Godefroid, and more.
We believe this experience will enrich our connections with harp education in Michigan. If there is anyone you think may benefit from this recital, please share this information. The MSU College of Music would like to offer complimentary tickets to you and interested students.

“There are a number of ear training apps available for the iPhone, but InTune has actual science to back it up.”
— Discchord

InTune is an outgrowth of 25 years of intonation research by Daniel Kazez, cellist and professor of music at Wittenberg University. The concept began as a method to test pitch discrimination, the ability to differentiate pitches that are close together. But then in a research study, Dr. Kazez discovered that students’ listening improved the more often they played – at triple the rate of those who did not. Download now and see if InTune works for you!

“Very easy to use…a fun and useful addition to your practice toolbox.” — Horn World
“Musical perfectionists and sound geeks beware: this game could become an obsession… It will absolutely help you develop a more discerning ear.” — Voice Council Magazine

We’re always improving InTune! Please send your comments and requests to dkazez@wittenberg.edu. Wondering what is a “good score”? It varies, based on music experience and age, but first-time users often score under 50% of a half step, or under 20% if they have music experience. With repeated use, scores improve substantially. Those with music experience may reach 1% of a half step, or even better.
