This thesis will examine techniques used to teach ear training to blind and sighted students. In addition to this, it will examine the role that sight plays in a person's ability to complete traditional ear training exercises. It will analyze the effectiveness of these techniques using volunteers from ear training and sight singing classes at the freshman level in the department of Music during the spring 2012 semester. Eight students participated in an experiment, which helped determine challenges both blind and sighted instructors face, as well as sighted students, face in a traditional ear training classroom. An analysis of student responses provided the basis for conclusions drawn about the effectiveness of these techniques.
