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!

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.

Rosa's Music Online School

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.
