Over 1070 lessons for over a dozen instruments
Taught completely “by ear!”
No Braille, No Print, No hard-to-learn system!
Just great music instruction.
WOW, this system is awesome. It's the best thing that I've found
since being blind ten years ago, right up there with getting my guide dog,
Ranger. I've spent so much time on it in the last two day that I almost
have “Misty” finished. I've tried to think of a way to play again for so long
and now I have it. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much.” - W. Harris
“I just wanted to thank you for your piano lessons. You do such a great job in teaching them and you make it seem easy. I am so glad you do this for us because trying to find a music teacher is so difficult and expensive. Thank you so much for all you do and keep up the great work!” - Estefani C.
Courses and Lessons by Instrument
(sequel to Intro to the Guitar and The Power Pack)
Intro to the Guitar for the Visually Impaired IN SPANISH!
You can add me to your list of satisfied customers. I'm 68 years old and I've been trying to teach myself piano for years by using various methods including ones similar to yours with very little success. For little more than the price of the sheet music, I got the music and an instructor too! And, none of this 'Row, row, your boat' or 'Twinkle, twinkle little star' jazz. Its real contemporary music. Anyhow, you can count on me to be back for more.
All of his music-education career Bill Brown has been teaching his students to play songs “by ear.” In the early 1990’s he started recording his “by ear” lessons so that his students could take the lessons home and learn more songs at a faster pace. He noticed that this style of learning was of a particular advantage to his visually impaired students.
As these “Guitar by Ear” and “Piano by Ear” song lessons became available through mail-order, he added two beginner courses to his line up of “by ear” offerings - ”Intro to the Guitar for the Visually Impaired,” and “Intro to the Piano for the Visually Impaired.” Through the use of these “Intro to” courses a beginning student could learn the basics needed to enter Bill Brown’s “by ear” world, even if this student was visually impaired.
The number of “Intro to” courses is now over a dozen and the “by ear” song lesson list keeps growing from it’s current 1070+ mark. You can purchase the courses and lessons on this site or get them as a free check-out through …
