We Teach Improvisation Like No Other
The are many play-by-ear courses out there. We bought some of them. They are mostly valuable. But they all teach improvisation in different ways. If you are like me who already have bought some other similar courses, don't worry. Our course is different.
You may wonder why we choose to teach this way. This approach is supported by strong rationale, proven to work, and we are certain that this approach it's the best way to develop musicianship. There are over 100 success stories in 'testimonial' page and still counting.
- We play solo, not just 'rhythmic patterns'
- We teach the PRINICLES of creating patterns so that you'll never be short of them
- You'll learn to write lead sheets by ear for others (You don't need them yourself)
- We'll walk you through the harmonisation of a song step-by-step
- We help you dig up your buried aural endowment
- You can remember the songs you learned for years if you learn it our way
- You can transpose on-the-fly
- We teach melody, rhythm
and chords, not just piano-playing.
- We teach the PRINCIPLES which you can apply to most songs
Many students come to us and ask questions such as:
Our answer is:
- "Am I too old to start?"
- "My fingers are stiff, can I learn?"
- "I haven't played piano for over 10 years,...."
- "Can I really play piano?"
- Why wait if you can start enjoying making music today?
- If you can type on a computer keyboard? Why do you think the piano keyboard is harder to manage?
Which Musical Instrument For Me?
1. Easy to learn
There's no doubt that piano is the easiest-to-handle musical instrument. Violin players need to coordinate both hands to play the melody. Piano players play the melody with his right hand and the accompaniment with his left one.
People think piano is hard to learn because they think piano score is unavoidable.
If you like saxophone, don't worry. By hooking a midi keyboard with a computer, not only can you play with many musical instruments, but also, you can create studio-quality music in your living room. For starters, check out Garageband for Mac.
The Story of Piano Score
Is piano score part of music? Absolutely NOT!
Music is aural art. Music score is just musical notations.
Music score was invented hundreds of years ago
when sound recording devices hadn't been invented.
People then had no choice but rely on music scores.
Let me ask you a question.
Suppose there're two pianists in your neighborhood.
The first one is excellent at sight-reading.
He plays any piano score at first sight without practice.
But he can never play by ear.
The second pianist seems to come from another world.
He can never read a piano score
but he can play ANY song he likes without sheets.
It's now time to hear your honest answer.
Which pianist would you like to become?
Mind you, aural skill is important to any musician.
In the era when Youtube is handy, why rely on piano scores any more?
The REAL Joy of Piano Playing
A student of mine once commented, "I was just a score-reading machine". (more testimonials...)
If you have been playing piano the tradional way for years, playing by ear without the bounds of piano score will bring your enjoyment to the next level.
Not only that, playing the piano will become creative. You'll be adding goodies while you play.
Don't let procrastination stop you from enjoying making music. Many students who had asked the above questions now turned into piano enthusiasts.
