Topic 4 - Ear Training

Through ear training, we can learn songs just by listening to them and jam along without any written help. This is a goal, or indeed a dream, of most people. This can then lead on to not only learning songs much faster, but also to instinctively improvising a solo or accompaniment without even having heard the song before, which is what the pros can do!

Earn training is a learnable, teachable skill that does NOT require perfect pitch!
