I'm taking a music theory class at my high school and i am now in the second semester. Last semester i got perfect scores on nearly all our test and was doing well on ear training. Today, the first test of this new semester, i failed, 40%. The test was all ear stuff, The teacher played melodies and we had to write them out on staff. He also played a melody and we had to say if it matched a melody written on the test. Everybody in my class got resonable scores on this test except me. My ear seemed to burn out about halfway through the test. The first half was done reasonably well but the second part i failed miserably. I am etreemly frustrated and disheartend. Has this ever happend to anyone? Have you ever had a day (or a week) were you were absolutley tone deaf? I know i shouldent be so disheartend because i have only been playing a musical instument for a year and a half while others in the class have been playing piano for their whole life, and this stuff is much harder than the ear training we did last semester. However, I still cant fight the feeling that i have a negative musical disposition. Anyways has anyone else here had this sort of "musical" depression?
