who knows how to play a piano piece by ear?
Posted 11/2/08
rachel does!! ;)

u really have to like, know the song. i havent gotten to the point yet where i just hear the song for a few times and am able to play it. u gotta know it really well and then just basically start out with the melody in the right hand and get the notes down for that. then you just add the chords in the left hand according to the right hand and voila.

I can't, but i've got a school mate who can. She just listens and plays it. '-'

Um...coming from someone who can play by ear....

I can't really explain it....it's really innate, from the time your are born--you just need the means and exposure to music.

Like myself...I can play by ear only by hearing the song once....but not only that, I can pick up playing other instruments without any formal training. Because of this, I was able to pick up the clarinet, guitar, cello, harp, piano, and violin. With the flute, I did receive formal instruction, but I played music that was clearly above my level.

Just an insight to someone who--to others--had a talent for music but never had a chance to actually use it....

mm.

it helps a lot if you have perfect pitch.

i have perfect pitch so i guess its easy for me.

you cant train to have perfect pitch because people are born with it

but you can train to have relative pitch
