My little sister Hannah now plays the piano. We recently noticed that Hannah can play perfectly by ear. Hannah doesn't know any of the notes but still can figure songs out. We first realized it when I heard her playing the melody of one of my Sonata's that I am learning. Everybody in our family plays piano except my dad. The two people who play the worst by ear are my mom and brother.
A few days ago, Hannah and I had a friendly competition. The point of the competition is to see who can figure out how to play a song that my mom gives us. By the time I got ready to play, Hannah had already managed to figure out the song. I needed a little bit more time to figure songs out. Then Hannah and Sarah tried to see who can figure out a completely new set of songs, and my sister Sarah was faster. Sarah is also really good at playing songs by ear.
Here is a piece that my mom taught Hannah to play. It is Minuet in G major by Bach.
Have you ever tried to play songs you like by ear?
