What Are The Advantages To Learning By Ear?

“Where sight reading fails, ear learning succeeds. Learning by ear is much more than just being able to hear something and play it back. Ear learning, combined with principled music theory, leads to what we call ‘true fluency’. Fluent musicians don’t hear notes, but rather they hear the ‘relationship’ between notes. This allows them to deconstruct what they are hearing in real time. Upon reconstructing the song they just heard, the fluent musician can effortlessly contribute creatively to the song, ultimately giving themselves more expressive ownership of the song.”
