Course Description

This Course is a course that will help you to develop a musical ear that can recognise the different Scale Degrees of any Major or Minor Scale.

In this Course, will learn how to recognise the tonic note, the supertonic note, the mediant note, the dominant note and other types of Scale Degrees by ear. This course will also help you to be able to recognise how the Key of a Song (i.e. the tonic note of the Scale that the Song is based on) sounds like just by listening to the song. Developing a good musical ear will help you with your piano playing and with your improvisation skills. Hence, this course will help you to improve your musical ear. Being able to read music is good; however it is even better and more beneficial if you have a skilled musical ear. Having a skilled musical ear is more beneficial and profitable than the skill of being able to read music (even though it is good to know how to read music). 

This course is for:

People want to improve their musical ear

People want to develop a good musical ear

People who struggle with finding the Key of a Song that they're listening to
