My new course teachs you how play by ear!


It's been a while since I updated my blog because I've been busy working on course that teaches how to play by ear from scratch. As you might already know, I'm not a classically trained, I so I'm not very good at reading notes (that's why I don't have any sheet music! lol).

However, What I am good at is playing by ear. Most of the tutorials and videos I've put up on YouTube were learned by ear. So over the years, I have learned some key concepts that enable me to play by ear. I wanted to share all the knowledge that I've acquired through a professional designed course. Since I get a lot of requests for sheet music and I don't have any I decided to create a course that would teach people how to play by ear. I wanted to make the learning process fun and easy, such that learning to play by ear becomes as easy as possible and you can get right to playing your favorite songs by ear.

The course is titled the Listen & Play Piano Course. A free preview of the course is also available on the course website. If you're at all interested in learning to play by ear, please have look at the preview and purchase the course. I've worked really hard on it, and I really believe it's one of the best ways to learn by ear.

More tutorials are on the way!

I've been checking my Google Analytics for my blog and I am getting a steady stream of visitors from all over the world (more 30 countries). Thanks to nikon.bungie.org a whole bunch of people now know about my blog. If you like my content, please link back so I can keep producing more tutorials. I have been getting some requests for a "Unforgotten Tutorial" in the new format, so I'll get work on that when I get time. I'm also thinking about putting a tutorial for the Peril theme under the new format, I'll see what I can do.

A new format for my piano tutorials!

I'm currently experimenting with a new format for delivering my piano tutorials. The picture above is a mock up of how it might look like. It would feature a clean interface with a top down view of the piano/keyboard and it will show what keys to play in what order.

If this new format is popular I will replace my old videos with this format (including the Halo Tutorials). Since the process of making tutorials with the new format is more streamlined, I can also post up other tutorials (Metal Gear Solid, Perfect Dark and other user requested tracks)
