What is "Ear Training"?

It is a thrilling moment when a musician first experiences the freedom of playing without reliance on the printed score.  To be able to play a melody by ear or to spontaneously create an improvised solo never before heard provides joy not to be missed by the player  committed to musical excellence. 785 more words

Ear Training is Brain Training

Theres this group of 10 persons sitting inside a room, and a nice modern electronic music was playing from the background. Now all of them heard the music and it was nice and soothing, but one among them heard a guitar part, repeating a simple funky 3-chord progression and he is pretty sure that it is in a minor key, and could probably, in a few seconds figure out and play the simple guitar part if he has his guitar on hand. 547 more words
