Many times in music we say that “he has a good ear”, meaning that someone can listen to a melody or a song and find out the notes that he listens to.
How many times has happened to listen to a song and want to play it on your instrument?
And then start searching on the internet to find it? And many times this search may not have a good result…
For you that play music you say that someone has a good ear or another guy doesn’t.
This happens for all of our talents, one talent to be better than another. It can happen to someone to have a good ability to hear and find out what he hears.
We’ll give the tools to guide our ears to understand the context of what we hear.
Using our theory knowledge we can find ways to approach this.
We’ll pass through the 3 elements of music that we must learn to hear.
Rhythm, melody and harmony, and we’ll see step by step how we can decode them.
I always say to my students that knowledge is the most important tool to move on,
but practice will give strength to knowledge and will take us forward and improve us.
