Crucial Ear Training For Fiddlers
I´m Mattie O´Boyle, the director of reelear.com, and I want to welcome you to the sixth and last course in our Crucial Ear Training for Fiddlers series.
This series provides you with the tools that you need to train your ear so you can learn all your favorite songs and tunes on your own, without sheet music and without abstract music theory.
Additionally, the course is designed as a fiddle skill building method to help you build up your fretboard fluidity, tone and bow control.
This course does not teach you specific fiddle tunes, but rather helps you acquire all the skills and abilities that you need to go out and learn the tunes yourself; it’s a leap towards musical freedom.
Everyone starts this journey from their own point of departure. Some folks quite naturally have a pretty good ear, while others, like myself, do not. The good news is that you can train your musical ear and go as far as you want with that training.
How do you do that? You´ll need to apply the same qualities to acquire these skills as with any other complex skill set: Persistence, patience, holding yourself to high standards and consolidating each step along the path before advancing to the next one. If you do that, I am sure that you will succeed. I have seen many, many students do so and there is no reason why you can not be one of them.
