About This Class

Play By Ear Rhythm 1: How to Figure out the Rhythm of a Song? Is it in 3/4 or 4/4 Time?

We all love to listen to music. When we listen to a song, we tune into the rhythm more than anything else. Most people don’t catch or don’t care about the occasional bad note or chord. But if the rhythm goes off in a performance, it’s the first thing the audience will notice.

Rhythm is an essential element in all music. You can mix together any sounds you want, but if there is no underlying rhythm to the sounds, there is no music.

Welcome to this course on "How to Figure out the rhythm of a song? I’m so happy you’re here. You might be wondering, is this the right course for me?

I designed this course for anyone who wants to play by ear and they want to figure out whether the song is written in 3/4 time or 4/4 time.

When you play your song, whether on a piano, guitar, or ukulele, you want to make sure you play your songs in the Right rhythm.

Songs have different time signature. Most songs are written with these 2 time signature. 3/4 or 4/4 Time.

  • When it is 3/4 song, you count the beat 1 2 3.
  • When it is 4/4 song, you count the beat 1 2 3 4

It seems very obvious, isn't it?

But you will be so surprised that when it comes to music, most people do not know how to count. This is why I created this course for you The frustration many people face is that they can't tell whether the songs they play are written in 3/4 time or 4/4 time.

Let me tell you, it takes time to learn Rhythm. No pun intended.

In this course, you are going to concentrate on learning songs written in 3/4 and 4/4 Time.

By the end of the course, you are going to able to tell the difference between songs that are written in 3/4 & 4/4 time without a shadow of doubt.

You must understand rhythm and how to 'count the beat' in songs. This is how you make progress. From there you will be able to play the simplest songs to the most complex pieces.

The more complex pieces of movie songs or standards are written in 2/4 time, 6/8 time, 9/8, 12/8 time. But you know what? They are all built on the principles of the timing in 3/4 and 4/4.

Many people at church have asked Rosa to teach them to play piano. As a result of her passion in playing piano, she started developing piano courses initially for church pianists online since 2008. The piano courses are very unique because she was finally willing to share her Unique Piano Method: Color Chord Improvisation Method known as CCI. The CCI method works for all types of music: Gospel, Pop and Standards.

This Piano Method is easy, fun and creative that you learn to play piano not only from music score sheets, but to play chords from fake books and eventually to play by ear. Students all over the world have requested for courses to teach them play standards and popular songs. As a result she developed 3 Great Reharmonization Method courses for them to play from fake books and play by ear. The Dreamy Piano Techniques courses, especially the one on Autumn Leaves is her students favorite. She has a piano website at Learn Piano With Rosa where she continues to offer new courses to her students. She also holds piano workshops for her local students and train church pianists.

With her education and expertise in teaching, her students love her music courses and found her piano lessons extremely easy and fun to play piano. They are highly motivated to play piano and playing piano had never been more fun and satisfying for them. You can read their testimonies on her website.
