About This Class

Hi there! This course is designed to teach anyone how to play the piano by ear as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The lessons are there to guide you through discovering the simplicity and the recurring patterns of songs, and learning to replicate and adjust them to according to your preference.

Based on the "learn by doing" concept, I will use an example song for you to start out with. After finishing the song, you will be good to go on your own!

After some practise you should be able to play any song stuck in your head almost immediately without thinking about it.
