Learn the Secrets of Playing Piano By Ear!
Piano By Ear! If you can hum, whistle or sing, you CAN learn to Play Piano By Ear, and it will take only a few short lessons to prove to yourself that YOU can do it. I learned to play many of my favorite tunes in a day and got my first paid gig playing those tunes two weeks later. In the blink of an eye, my life veered onto the musical journey of a lifetime, and as a result, I've been a professional 'play by ear' musician for the last 46 years.

Being able to easily play the songs I love was an unbelievable dream come true for ME, and changed my life in unimaginable ways. Being able to play the piano by ear has been one of the happiest experiences of my life...and it will be for YOU, too!

 

 


 

Just so you know, I also read music, but playing by ear is far more enjoyable than playing from written notation alone. The heart-felt excitement it generates IS the reason I focus exclusively on teaching my students HOW to play by ear without reading music, and it's the reason my online students stick with me year after year. It is the FUN generated - not the work - that will keep you playing for a lifetime!

 

Why should YOU learn to play piano by ear?
Answer: Because playing by ear is the most natural way to express yourself through music!

Learning to play before you read is the most logical first step, yet is completely overlooked in 'traditional' lessons. Learning to speak before you read, is the very foundation for understanding any language.

Think about this for a moment: If children were required to read English before speaking it, they probably would not speak intelligibly for many years; if ever! Yet, the majority of music students are taught that very method; read...then speak.

  • That's NOT how I learned to speak: That's NOT how I learned to play: That's NOT how I teach...because it's grossly illogical!

 

Now, think about this: It often takes years of lessons before a dedicated student can easily read and play a piece of written music in its entirety...but the person who created that same music (for music readers to 'read') first played it by ear! Weird, huh? There's more...

Most traditional instructors encourage their students to memorize their music, in order to perform without reading music. Unfortunately, because they are memorizing, instead of comprehending the structure of music that repeats through ALL tunes, they will soon forget...and THAT is a SHAME! All that work, and then it simply evaporates.

In my 46 years as a professional pianist, I have forgotten every piece of music I memorized.
By contrast, I have retained the ability to play every piece of music I understood and could comprehend, and my repertoire includes hundreds (if not thousands) of tunes at any moment in time.

 

For self played music to be enjoyable for a lifetime, it has to be FUN!
According to a survey by the National Piano Institute, about 90% of 'traditional' piano students drop out of lessons before the end of the first year. PianoMagic students often comment that 'traditional' lessons were too hard, didn't show how to play the music they wanted to play and were NO FUN! It doesn't have to be THAT way!


IF IT ISN'T FUN, IT WON'T BE DONE!
