Learn The Secret Approach To Ear Training That Actually Works

Learn how to hear notes, recognize where they come from in a key, and know where they would be played on the guitar.

Without needing to pick up the instrument!

Move to the next level of musicianship and finally train your ears in a way that works

After years of teaching guitarists how to unlock their ears, we've finally packaged this method into a self-paced, step-by-step course.

Do you want to be able to hear melodies, know exactly what notes they are in a key, AND know exactly how to play them on the guitar?

Do you want to be able to hear melodies in your head and play them instantly on the guitar?

I remember thinking that these kinds of abilities were mysterious, seeming almost magical. But after years of searching for a way to acquire them and teach them, I’ve discovered that they are actually quite simple to learn.

Absolutely anybody can do these things if they practice precisely this curriculum.

Guitarists NEED to work on deliberate ear training.

Playing a fretted instrument means that our ears will never get trained automatically. We must supplement our practice using the voice.

Only by following very specific and intentional exercise parameters can we truly unlock our ears and finally be able to play anything we hear (from out in the world or in our heads) on the fretboard.

The exercises in this course will train you to be able to hear any melody, figure it out in your head (or by using your voice), and know exactly how it would be played on the guitar without needing to touch the instrument.

If you’ve always wondered how to do this, then I’m very excited for you to experience first hand how it works.

What do you need to know already to be able to take this course?:

If you are capable of physically playing a scale on the guitar, and able to match pitches using your voice within the range of an octave and a half, then you have everything you need to be able to take this course and learn this method.
