Niels Walkau: The dream of playing by ear is ALIVE!

I spent years learning to play piano by rote but could never play by ear. Embarrassing actually. I always thought I wasn't born with that "magical" talent and I would have given a lot to be able to sit down and play any tune off the top of my head. After only spending literally 30 minutes in this course, I have the confidence and evidence that IT IS POSSIBLE to learn to play by EAR. The piano notation that Rosa introduces is crazy easy to understand and will transform how you understand/enjoy playing music. I am only 8 lectures in at this point...I will report back as I make more progress...

Barbara: Learned to play 2 songs by ear in 30 min!

Wow! I am more excited about this course than any I have taken before. It's accelerated learning. Once again Rosa has shared so much knowledge with her students. Looking forward to the next course. If you are interested in learning to play by ear don't miss this course.

Judy Rae Harbin: This course really helped me with recognizing tones and their relation to each other.

Rosa, as always, was totally dedicated to making it all so simple to understand. Like learning a whole new musical language, but so easy-- with VERY impressive videos and demonstrations of each step along the way--typical Rosa highest quality!

Alene Thornton: A desire to play by ear?

As usual, I think Rosa has come up with another winning course. Rosa taught me this numbering system (Asian Notation or also known as Jianpu) several years ago and I have used it every since as a method to easily play any song in all 12 keys using just one lead sheet. The emphasis on Part 1 of this course is learning how to pick out a melody, and then also to write it down using the numbering system and also how to play using just the lyrics.

She explains, in her usual easy descriptive method, just how to know what key a song is in, what the starting note will be, whether it's a pickup note/notes and clues to where the melody is going next.

This first part 1 course is just the beginning of the fun! There will be more to come but you will be able to visualize the advantages of using this numbering system to make playing in any key so easy. There are lots of fun songs to practice this method in this course for beginners or intermediates to advanced, or anyone wanting to learn to play by ear, no matter what level you are at now.

Another super course!

Playing By Ear is a Fascinating Topic.

Is it your dream to be able to play your favorite song by ear?

Many people struggle for many years to read music. This course is going to free you from the traditional musical score sheets such that you can play by ear using my Number Method.

My Play by Ear Method is based on a 7 tone Number system. It takes only ONE HOUR to learn the system. That´s how simple the system is. You don´t believe me? Tell me about it after you learn the system from me. And before the day finishes, you are going to have a system in your brain and hands to play some of your favorite songs by EAR. Read the reviews and you can do play by EAR today before you go to sleep.

The Concept takes less than 1 Hour to learn, but to MASTER the skill, you need to have a lot of songs to practice on and this is why I have provided lots of song assignments from Beginners to Intermediate to Advanced for you to work on. Mastering this skill will take the next 2 weeks to become GOOD at it. The Assignment & the Practical applications are the most important and FUN part of the course!

My Testimony: Never did I dare to think that my DREAM would come true: I can now play many of my favorite songs by EAR. It's happening and HAPPENING every day. It took me 20 years to find the path to play songs by ear. I am so EXCITED that I want to share these easy-to-follow instructions so that DREAMERS like you can start playing your favorite songs by ear. For you, it will only take a few hours to finish this course to start gaining the knowledge and skill to learn how to pick out melodies of song using my 7 Tone Method.

This Play By Ear Course is a 3 part series. This is Part 1 of a series and this course will teach you how to start picking out melodies of simple songs in Key of C. You are going to learn about the dynamics and quality of sounds of these 7 tones so that you know how melodies move in songs, whether they go up, go down, or remain the same. In Part 2, you will learn to use the same 7 tones to play in all 12 Keys by EAR easily. In Part 3, you will learn to harmonize all these songs with Chords.

Although my demonstration of these songs are on the keyboard, this Play by Ear course is suitable for all musicians who want to learn to play by ear. If you play piano, guitar, ukulele or violin, and you want to learn to play by Ear, this course is also for you. My demonstration is on the piano/keyboard, but you can use the same principles to apply to your musical instrument.

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.
