Urban Worship Play By Ear 1

Urban and Contemporary Worship Play by Ear is the quickest way to learn any song by ear.

After learning how to play by ear with no one to show me, it forced me to develop an easy and quick process and procedure to learning songs by ear quickly. Many of the musicians, when I was learning how to play, did not know theory nor were they able to explain the process to learning songs. After so many years of finally learning theory, I began to see a remarkable pattern to all songs and I am exposing these secrets to you.

By learning these secrets, you will not only be able to create your own music without knowing how to read it, but you will be able to play any song you hear, guaranteed! "It just cannot get any easier than this..."
This is the ultimate course for beginners and for musicians looking to get back into playing.
