About This Class

Learn to Play by Ear is a FUN Skill to pick up, even if you think you are tone deaf, or you don't have musical ears.  It is exactly for this reason that I created this class for 'normal' people like us who feel that we are not born with good musical ears.

This class is for everyone on this earth!

You don't have to play any musical instrument.

You just listen to these 7 Lectures to the 7 tones in music that are found in songs!

In the project area, you are going to COMPOSE  your first line of music!  

Think you can't do it. 

You will be surprised what happened after this class.  Let's have fun together.

Creating a melody line from pure imagination can be difficult. So using the melody line (and its structure) from another simple song to jump start my imagination is much easier.
By far the best section of this series - most informative.
