Types of Ear Musicians

* The "Natural" Ear-only Type

* The "Theoretician" Type

* The Natural/Theory " Hybrid " Type


The traditional method guides a student by using the most basic fundamentals as a foundation, then slowly introduces increasingly complex lessons. The benefit of a traditional learning experience is that the student gains a greater understanding of the keyboard, music theory, the relationship between notes in the scales, and so many other details that make sense out of an unfamiliar skill. And when it comes to performing, you will eventually gain the proficiency necessary to play your desired piece of music as the original artist or composer intended. The drawback to this method of learning is that it takes a significant time commitment and great patience to get up and running.

By Ear (Aurally)

Do you “have an ear” for music? Can you translate what you hear into notes and chords on an instrument? If so, you have a talent that significantly streamlines the learning process. Learning by ear eliminates the task of learning to read music. But to be effective at playing by ear, you still ought to learn how to place your fingers in the appropriate patterns, learn the name of the notes, etc.


If you’re the type of person who’s looking to play as soon as possible (is today soon enough?), then the chord method is for you. Each chord is a basic note combination that provides enough audible information to sing along to. Even though the actual song you are “covering” may contain a complex series of notes, chords represent enough of the music to get the party started and have some fun. The great thing about this method is that learning chords takes relatively little time. That said, chords tend to oversimplify music. A song’s distinctive melody, or a signature run of notes that lend to a song’s popularity, cannot be expressed in a chord. Put another way, you could mix together bits of steak, potato, green beans and a dinner roll; compress them into bar form; and eat the conglomeration for dinner. You would get most of the nutrition of the ingredients, but wouldn’t enjoy the bar nearly as much as you’d enjoy all the elements of the entrĂ©e separately on a plate.


This learning method teaches you shortcuts that supposedly mimic most popular music. I say supposedly because some argue the pattern based method disregards the actual nuances in a song that differentiate it from other songs. Yet, it is another popular way to reach your piano playing goal more quickly than more traditional methods because you can learn a few key playing patterns and then proceed to sound like a professional with little other training. It’s more complex than the chord method, so it enables you to sound more like the original artist. However, like the chord method, it tends to oversimplify the music, and a trained ear in your audience will pick that up.

As you probably discovered, if you want to learn to play the piano, you can take your time or you can be up and running by dinner time. Think about the kind of player you want to be, choose your method, and then proceed to piano lessons and music resources.

Best wishes on becoming a better musician,

Early Childhood Music Educator

The physical benefits of early childhood music are outstanding. Motor skills can be improved through improvisational dancing and handling of the instruments. Vocal and speech development improve through singing while listening skills and concentration improve with aural training. The old-fashioned goals of sharing and cooperation are reinforced with the sharing of instruments and encouragement of other students.
The most important benefit, however, is the proven positive effects music has on brain development. This has been thoroughly researched and documented and is most crucial during the first six years, when the most important brain development takes place. NPR radio broadcast a program called Gray Matters: Music and the Brain, which included Dr. Gordon Shaw, who first described the Mozart Effect.
