Play Piano By Ear: Lesson #2

For Students of All Ages

The first step in learning how to play piano by ear is to learn simple melody lines over a basic chord progression consisting of just two chords. As your ear begins to grow, we'll add a third chord, and then a fourth chord, and so on. Your second lesson is directly below.

The second song in my free 18-month course is titled, "Sandlot", and is 8 measures in length. The right hand melody starts on Middle C and fits into a 5-note range consisting of the notes C, D, E, F and G.

1.) Figure out the notes of the melody and write them down.
2.) Use your piano to help you figure out the notes.
3.) Download the sheet music when you're finished to check your results.
4.) Listen to the recording until you can play the rhythms exactly as you hear them.
5.) Listen to the recording as many times as necessary.
