Using the number system i was hired to play for a church in my first 6 months of playing. They would hand me a cd to listen, learn, and show up and play it all by ear.
I am not a virtuoso but using this system i was able to recognize the chord patterns that are recycled in
almost all popular songs in all genres of music.
All popular music uses the same patterns or chord movements within the scale. So once you understand how the patterns are created you are not necessarily learning new songs over and over again but rather learning which pattern a song is using and applying it.
In a nut shell the major scale has 7 notes numbered 1-7.
There are certain chords that can be played on each of the 7 notes.
Chords move along the 7 note scale creating movements called progressions.
We track the movements by notating the number of the lowest note being played or the bass note..
So once you learn the scale,
chords that you can play on each tone of the scale,
and how to track the number pattern created by the chord movements within the scale,
you will be able to consistently play songs by ear.
I love music and i love sharing that love with everyone that shares the passion for music. I would love to help you achieve your dream of playing the piano by ear. This system worked for me and it can work for you too.
I teach privately from my home or i can travel to you as long as you are within a reasonable distance.
