ARE YOU REALLY BEING TAUGHT HOW TO PLAY MUSIC BY EAR? or ARE YOU BEING SOLD THE ILLUSION THAT YOU ARE?

"IF YOU CAN HEAR IT, YOU CAN PLAY IT!!"

A wonderful, musically sexy and clever marketing slogan to appeal to those with the desire to learn to play music by ear. Wouldn't that mean that the courses making these claims can empower you to play any song you HEAR; whether on CD, MP3 or Radio? Wouldn't that mean that after completion of that course, you should be able to use the skills learned and figure out any song on your own without visual tools (Videos/DVDs, YouTube tutorials)?

How's it going for you?

 

If you can't do the above even after completing these other courses, perhaps you may be in the category, "IF YOU CAN SEE IT, YOU CAN PLAY IT!!". Meaning, you were not taught how to play music by ear.

If an English teacher taught you how to speak English, would you have to keep coming back to that teacher to learn more sentences? Obviously not. The truth is, music is a language and when you really understand that language, and how to musically speak it, you can duplicate anything you hear.

Here's my definition of "Playing Music By Ear" - "The ability to perform a musical composition without the need of any printed sheets of music to direct ones progression; rather it’s to progress with a combination of understanding, sound recognition, memory, instinct and feeling."

The “Any Key Music System™” is unlike any you've experienced before. The main difference with other programs versus the “Any Key Music System™” is they specialize in showing and telling you the answers in the forms of written notation, video/dvds, filled in chord diagrams, scale diagrams of the piano keys and lots of other written and visual material.
"I call these ‘Illusional Ear Methods'. I believe that any program that does this is indirectly telling you that they don't believe their program can truly develop your ears."

“Do you want to learn how to play piano by reading what's on paper. Or, do you want to learn how to listen and play anything just like ear musicians have been doing for centuries? I myself have been doing this since the age of 3 and have been teaching this art for many years."

AKMS' Technical Definition

I – Illusionary: the misleading of one’s perception of reality.

E – Ear: a membrane of the upper body which equilibrates sound vibrations to maintain a balance to one’s auditory nerve:

M – Method: the orderly plan of executing a structural set of actions.

Symptoms: Depression and frustration of not being able to do what was imagined, or taught after paying for it: Feeling a sense of loss because the results of the lessons did not seem to endure over time: Still feeling a strong sense of wanting more; not fulfilling: Harbouring a sense of disbelief with all the money spent, yet with not much to show for it: Feeling limited and having a deep sense of never seeing the climax of one’s full potential.

The “Any Key Music System™” is designed to primarily use your ears, mind, hands and a keyboard. The entire system contains practically all the teachings you're going to need to succeed.

Purposely, your lessons are on CD's, therefore, channeling your focus to your ears, as opposed to books and videos, which put more emphasis on your eyes. "I'm not against these things, but my thought is why don't we learn how to play first?"

Picture going through a grade one test in math class, what if above every question on the sheet, your teacher wrote the answers down for you to copy and fill in the blanks? Would you like that? Would you want to be in that class? "When I was in school, I might have thought that it would have been great if all my classes were like that. Most of us would. You'd come out with an A, but be honest, did the teacher really help you?"

Did he/she teach you how to figure out the answers?

 

 

Most likely not. You see that's the mind component that would missing in that teaching practice. So then when you're put in a situation to use your math skills outside of the class, you'll shut down, lose confidence, and be lost because you never really UNDERSTOOD the "HOW TO" in the first place. You were able to get by because you simply copied the answers that were given to you (YouTube videos showing you hands on a keyboard and a computer generated keyboard above illuminating which keys where played).

Ultimately that's not fair to you, and it doesn't really help you.

 

 

I promise that won't happen with the Any Key Music System™, because my system balances what I teach with what you can naturally already do in order to maximize your results.


“If you can hear it,

 

you can play it and understand it,

 

because I can teach it. And I'll prove it."

 

 

To the right you've probably already noticed some of the shorter testimonials I've received from those who have used the
Any Key Music System™.
