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.

Acoustic Consultant

If you have good ears, and have a technical interest in how sound travels in a given space then you might be interested in becoming an acoustic

Spaces such as churches, concert halls, conventions halls, stadiums and clubs all need sound reinforcement and help designing a workable sound system.

As an acoustical consultant you would provide an acoustical analysis of a particular space, look for acoustical problems, and make suggestions for equipment or interior design changes that would fix any problems. More music production careers include......

Recording Equipment Manufacturer's Representative

There is a lot of competition among manufacturers of recording and sound equipment and manufacturers are looking for quality people to represent them with the buying public.

Working closely with these manufacturers the representative often works in a customer service and technical support role.

They will also represent the company at trade shows as a product demonstrator and will usually have a strong musical background and good playing ability as a musician.

Rerecording Mixer (Film and Video)

Lets' say a film or business wants to use a particular song for a commercial or movie.

They will often rerecord the song or composition again to avoid having to negotiate and pay a sometimes rather large master-licensing fee to a record label for use of the actual (master) recording.

By recording the song again , they only have to pay the mechanical licensing fee, which is a rate that is established by the U.S. government (currently, 8.0¢ per song, per unit that is five minutes and under in length, and 1.55¢ for each minute above five minutes) and is much cheaper than a master-licensing fee.

Therefore, a rerecording mixer for film and video rerecords a song or composition that already has been commercially released.
