4 Steps to Learning How to Play Any Song on the Piano

1. Determining the melody - Melodies determine what chords will be played. If you can use your ear to figure out what notes are being played in the melody, you are 1/4 on your way to learning a song! More resources on learning how to determine melodies

2.Harmonizing the melody - Once you have figured out the melody (using some of my techniques on the resource page), it is time to harmonize it. This is simply choosing various chords to accompany the melody. There are several techniques and tricks to doing this. More resources on learning how to harmonize melodies

3. Altering Chords - This is the best part! Now that you have strategically figured out the melody to a song and have harmonized it, altering your chords to produce certain sounds is the next step. If you were playing gospel music, you would alter your chords differently than if you were playing classical or country music. More resources on altering chords

4. Listening - After you have determined the melody, harmonized the melody, and altered some of your chords, there are various techniques you can use to make sure that your song sounds right. More resources on listening techniques

I personally recommend "The Secrets to Playing Piano By Ear" 300-pg Course and through my relationship with Jermaine (the author of this course), I've been able to get him to throw in a few bonus items (3 additional piano software programs). He has taught literally thousands of musicians how to play the piano by ear. If you understood just half of what he discussed above, you'll definitely benefit from his 300-pg course. Click here to learn the secrets to playing absolutely any song on the piano in virtually minutes! I highly recommend it.

Hear and Play

Perhaps the best all around methods to learn to play by ear.

Advantages of Playing Piano By Ear

1) "Being able to instantly recognize chords that are played in
songs even without being at a piano."

"You are able to learn songs faster and easier because you
understand why chords are played at certain points in songs."


2) "Not required to memorize chord progressions (pattern of
chords played one after the other) because understanding them
will automatically incline you to know what chord to play next."

"Allows you to improvise and add your own "flavor" to the song.
This is especially advantageous when playing in a church as you
can never predict how long a song will be sung or what key the
singer might resolve to.

In a band, this might be helpful if the
leader simply instructs everyone to surprisingly repeat a part
of the song or change the key in which the song is currently
being played in."

3) "Will allow you to use the same methods to play virtually any
song you want (most songs; don't quote me if you're referring to
Mozart as this might take more practice than most other songs)."

"Saves you the money and time of having to go out and buy the
sheet music to a song that you've already learned how to play by
using the ability of your ear to recognize melodies, chords, and
progressions. However, buying the sheet music isn't a bad idea
if you want to learn specific parts to songs that have high
levels of complexity."

Rocket Piano

When my students asked me to take a look and various adult piano learning methods I chose Rocket Piano to review first and to be truthful my first reason was the price.

Many requests came from people that were not sure if they would take to piano lessons and did not want to invest an arm and a leg to find out.

At 39.95 it came in as the lowest cost online piano course I could find on the web.

At a truly affordable price Rocket Piano deserves its reputation as one of the better online piano programs. If you are an adult piano student either at a beginner level or wanting to dust off some rusty technique, you should seriously consider this self teaching program.
