The “superpower” of music

A couple of days I posted about the superpower of music that we all would probably want:

The ability to recognize and easily play songs’ chords and melodies by ear, or to easily play the music that we hear in our mind. (instead of blindly playing scale patterns…)

With this in mind, 12 months ago, a friend sent me a link to something he found online, which changed everything in my music life since then.

Without a lot of explanation, let me include the testimonial that I’ve written myself to David, the founder of Improvise for Real, so he can use on his website, from those feelings of thankfulness for what they have created.

My testimonial for the Improvise for Real method

“Over the last 10 years, I’ve tried more than a dozen different ear training programs, apps, books, CD’s…for some of them I have paid hundreds of dollars. Sadly, none of them delivered on their promises, and I’ve seen pretty much zero results in the real world.

I thought the problem is that I just had “weak” ears. Yes, I did eventually learn to tell the difference between intervals I heard in an app. But I never figured out why it doesn’t help me one bit with actually trying to figure out chords or melodies by ear and play them on the guitar / piano.

It was only 12 months ago when a friend found the IFR website and sent me the link, that I had a feeling that this time it will actually deliver on the promises.

One year later and I’m in a COMPLETELY different place when it comes to music. I can figure out melodies almost instantly and play them on the guitar / harmonica / piano intuitively. I can listen to a new song and usually know intuitively where my fingers should go when I reach for the guitar to play the chords. And with minimal trial and error – I can sing my favorite songs’ melodies and bass lines in scale degrees.

I FEEL the notes, finally.

I think that every music learner should be using the IFR method”

What makes the IFR method different than 99% of what’s out there is that it works based on recognizing scale degrees instead of only on hearing the intervals.

Anyways, I asked David if he can make a meaningful discount for the people on my courses and email list. He was generously willing to take 33% off his best offer which is his top two courses bundled together. (Courses which I believe are massively underpriced to begin with considering the amazing superpowers that they gift you as a musician)

You can check out their YT channel (with 45K+ subscribers) – they are the real deal when it comes to learning how to recognize music by ear and how to improvise – and there’s a ton of great free videos there.

His offer only lasts for one week, so be quick to grab it in the link here or at the button below. Your life as a music lover would be divided to before you had this, and after. Enjoy! (and let me know if you have any questions on my own experience with it)

It is meant for any level – from beginner to advanced.

Check out an example from their YT channel (45K+ subscribers) of how the method works – by recognizing and singing the scale degrees. This is a jazzy example, but the method is extremely effective for anyone from complete beginner in ear training – to very advanced
