Play by Ear

Today, we’ll learn how to play music by ear intrinsically.

Hi, it’s Ron Greene here,

  • Kindergartners Learn Blues From Conan O’Brien… June 21, 2017
    Have to admit (subjectively) that this gathering of young minds with Conan O’Brien is progressively fun. An interesting way to introduce kids to music, in this instance… the Blues. In any case, it’s worth a quick watch to get your subjective opinion. Jam On! – Ron (credit via: society of rock .com) “I Can’t Stop […]
