Here are some Reviews by students already in less than 24 Hours after the launching of the course:

Niels Walkau: The dream of playing by ear is ALIVE!

I spent years learning to play piano by rote but could never play by  ear. Embarrassing actually. I always thought I wasn’t born with that  “magical” talent and I would have given a lot to be able to sit down and  play any tune off the top of my head. After only spending literally 30  minutes in this course, I have the confidence and evidence that IT IS  POSSIBLE to learn to play by EAR. The piano notation that Rosa  introduces is crazy easy to understand and will transform how you  understand/enjoy playing music. I am only 8 lectures in at this  point…I will report back as I make more progress… 

Barbara: Learned to play 2 songs by ear in 30 min!

Wow! I am more excited about this course than any I have  taken before. It’s accelerated learning. Once again Rosa has shared so  much knowledge with her students. Looking forward to the next course. If  you are interested in learning to play by ear don’t miss this course. 

Judy Rae Harbin: This course really helped me with recognizing tones and their relation to each other.    

Rosa, as always, was totally dedicated to making it all so simple to  understand.  Like learning a whole new musical language, but so easy–   with VERY impressive videos and demonstrations of each step along the  way–typical Rosa highest quality! 

Alene Thornton:  A desire to play by ear? 

As usual, I think Rosa has come up with another winning  course.  Rosa taught me this numbering system (Asian Notation or also  known as Jianpu) several years ago and I have used it every since as a  method to easily play any song in all 12 keys using just one lead sheet.   The emphasis on Part 1 of this course is learning how to pick out a  melody, and then also to write it down using the numbering system and  also how to play using just the lyrics.  

She explains, in her usual easy  descriptive method, just how to know what key a song is in, what the  starting note will be, whether it’s a pickup note/notes and clues to  where the melody is going next. 

This first part 1 course is just the beginning of the fun!  There will  be  more to come but you will be able to visualize the advantages of  using this numbering system to make playing in any key so easy. There  are lots of fun songs to practice this method in this course for  beginners or intermediates to advanced, or anyone wanting to learn to  play by ear, no matter what level you are at now.   

  Another super course! 



Playing By Ear is a Fascinating Topic. 

Is it your dream to be able to play your favorite song by ear? 

Many people struggle for many years to read music.  This course is going to free you from the traditional musical score sheets such that you can play by ear using my Number Method. 

My Play by Ear Method is based on a 7 tone Number system.  It  takes only ONE HOUR to learn the system. That´s how simple the system is. You don´t believe me? Tell me about it after you learn the system from me.  And before the day finishes, you are going to have a system in your brain and hands to play some of your favorite songs by EAR. Read the reviews and you can do play by EAR today before you go to sleep. 

The Concept takes less than 1 Hour to learn, but to MASTER the skill, you need to have a lot of songs to practice on and this is why I have provided lots of song assignments from Beginners to Intermediate to Advanced for you to work on.  Mastering this skill will take the next 2 weeks to become GOOD at it. The Assignment & the Practical applications are the most important and FUN part of the course! 

My Testimony: Never did I dare to think that my DREAM would come true: I can now play many of my favorite songs by EAR. It’s happening and HAPPENING every day. It took me 20 years to find the path to play songs by ear. I am so EXCITED that I want to share these easy-to-follow instructions so that DREAMERS like you can start playing your favorite songs by ear. For you, it will only take a few hours to finish this course to start gaining the knowledge and skill to learn how to pick out melodies of song using my 7 Tone Method

This Play By Ear Course is a 3 part series. This is Part 1 of a series and this course will teach you how to start picking out melodies of simple songs in Key of C.  You are going to learn about the dynamics and quality of sounds of these 7 tones so that you know how melodies move in songs, whether they go up, go down, or remain the same. In Part 2, you will learn to use the same 7 tones to play in all 12 Keys by EAR easily.  In Part 3, you will learn to harmonize all these songs with Chords. 

Although my demonstration of these songs are on the keyboard, this Play by Ear course is suitable for all musicians who want to learn to play by ear. If you play piano, guitar, ukulele or violin, and you want to learn to play by Ear, this course is also for you. My demonstration is on the piano/keyboard, but you can use the same principles to apply to your musical instrument.

12 reviews for Play By Ear #1: Pick Out Melodies with 7 Tones in 1 Hour

  1. Luis Brito

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela
    Abdallah Galal

  3. Jiaqing Fan

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

  8. Fortunate Eze

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.


  9. Chendaniel

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

  10. Caspar Cheng

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
