The current case study focused on the development and application of acoustic education including ear training curriculums for students majoring in popular music. The Department of Music offers both a vocal music program and an applied music program. The applied music program mainly focuses on popular music. The curriculums include courses in Western classical music, Korean traditional music, and popular music. Students also learn various related subjects including information technology. While undergraduate students participated in the class during their first and second semesters, graduate students participated only in the first semester. The data were obtained by both questionnaires and interviews administered to the students who took part in both of the abovementioned special classes.
