Learn more about how music is created, or rather improvised, on the piano or guitar in the form of pop and jazz music in this 1-hour PBE educational talk. See as we demonstrate on the piano how all musical forms really share similar origins. For example, classical music is really music written over painstaking hours and days for the medieval European listener in a static, pre-arranged form. Improvisation helps you understand the underlying principles of music such that you can create music in real-time. That’s right, improvisers (aka musicians) create music on the spot (aka play by ear).
For corporate bookings, the talk will be organized during lunch time. For academic institutions, the talk can be arranged in the day time around the students’ curriculum and enrichment needs. Kindly note that this talk is only available for secondary schools and tertiary institutions. Call or email us @ info@play-by-ear.net to arrange for a PBE educational talk for your organization or school.
