Imagine finally having the skills to focus in on and identify elements in the music you love, so you can learn to play it more accurately with more feel.
Ear Training Bootcamp gives you the techniques and exercises so you can begin to train your ear to recognize notes, riffs, chords and melodies. Decipher songs and solos by your favourite artists and start to unlock the songs and musicality inside you.
Because, quite simply you've never practiced any techniques that focus on your ears. Oh sure, you've practiced A TON OF STUFF for your fretting and picking hands but nothing else, that's why you're struggling.
This course sets you on the path to finally harnessing the power of your ears, fingers and brain and train them up so you can take it to the next level as a better listener, and a better musician.
Ear Training Bootcamp teaches the methods to do just that, saving you the time and the frustration of aimlessly fumbling around on the fretboard blindly hunting and guessing at what notes should be next.
Ok, I just made that up because it sounds good, but by practicing these Ear Training techniques you will:
How many ear training videos or apps have you seen that use piano in the examples?
While the fundaments of Ear Training are common to all instruments, if you want to learn to recognize and decipher guitar parts (which you do). YOU HAVE TO LEARN TO LISTEN BY LISTENING TO GUITAR PARTS!
This course is full of both acoustic and electric guitar examples with guitar tones from clean country to filthy metal distortion. Because THAT’S what you need to develop and attune your ear to. Check the Steinway Baby Grand at the door and let's get started.
Ear Training Bootcamp is a weekend course to help you begin to "hear and recreate" the songs you want to learn
Comments from Students
Goes from the Ground Up
“I like that it goes from the ground, without taking any major leaps that might leave a gap in knowledge. I also like that it provided a lot of resources to reinforce the knowledge you're showing.”
“The interval identification lessons were very helpful. Also loved the blues part and major and minor pentatonic.”
Small digestable chunks of good information
“I liked the way that the course was presented. The logical flow of content was appropriate and I didn't feel like anything needed to be rearranged. The length of the videos was also really good. They were small, digestible chunks of good information.”
What it's like to sit in with a guitar teacher in real life
“I like the the tone of the videos. It's a good simulation of what it's like to sit in with a guitar teacher in real life. The lessons are also quite similar to Leavitt's modern method books but with a much more accessible presentation.”
“No jargon, good pacing, examples given, participation requested amongst peers, various teaching methods employed.”
He told me what to practice and it worked
“I can go through at my own pace. He told me what to practice and it worked!”
I liked the depth and pace
“I liked the depth and pace set by the course, it helps break down the differences between major and minors, specifically the changes in the notes.”
I've been playing guitar for 33 years and teaching for over a decade. I came of age before the internet so everything I wanted to learn on guitar, I had to learn by ear.
This has given me powerful skills that are vital to any guitarist and I'm keen to pass them on, if you're prepared to do the work.
I'll guide you through the methods and exercises to train your ears and help you enhance the connection between your ears and your fingers
