Lesson #9 - Rhythm

Learning Songs With Sheet Music: It's nice to be able to play piano by ear and read sheet music at a competent level. In this course I'm going to teach you how to do both.


Your Piano Instructor

Once I learned how to play piano by ear, I stopped reading sheet music for a long time. I never really enjoyed playing the piano when all I could do was read sheet music.

Once they understand the benefits, students really enjoy learning songs by ear and with the use of sheet music! - Guy




 Transcribing Music


What does it mean to transcribe music?

Transcribing music is the act of notating a solo or song from an audio recording. I won't say transcribing music is easy, but at the same time, it's not that hard. With a few simple techniques, anyone can learn how to play by ear.

  • For most musicians and music students, transcribing a song typically involves listening to small portions of a song over and over again; each time picking up a few new notes or chords.

A note-for-note transcription is an exact reproduction of the melody, chords and rhythms in any given song.

  • However, one doesn't have to write the notes down to learn songs by ear. There are many ways to play by ear. I will cover all of them in this course.





 Rhythm Exercise #1


Parts 2 through 5 in this lesson will all be rhythm exercises using the sheet music playback function normally used in Part 4 of each lesson.

Since you will be relying on your ear quite a bit throughout this course, the next 4 rhythm exercises have been designed to help you develop your ear to hear complicated rhythms in small portions.

  • Each exercise will consist of just 1 measure of music which will be played four times using the same key on the piano.

Your job is to listen and then play the rhythm using the same key on your piano. These first 4 exercises are fairly simple, but they will get progressively more complicated in later lessons.
