THE Most Important Skill For A Musician (& How To Learn It)

If you can figure out bass lines by ear then you can teach yourself. Yes that's right, I do want to do myself out of a job. The goal of any teacher should be to give the student the tools to further their own skills with each new level of understanding. This comes from constantly pushing the boundary and learning new things.

For my money, there's no better skill than having a strong musical ear. 

This lesson will teach you how to:

  1. Work songs out by ear
  2. Jam and improvise from scratch
  3. Play songs quickly
  4. Play with other musicians with confidence
