What are Musical Ear members saying about The Musical Ear course?
Listen to some of the voicemails, video reviews, and emails I’ve received from Musical Ear members below:
“Last December my finger hovered over the ‘buy’ button for the premium Musical Ear course. I had got so much out of Julian’s free YouTube lessons, but still £200+ seemed like a lot of money.
Five months later I am so pleased I clicked. It’s the best investment I ever made. A complete bargain.
You might think the course is all about ear training, but it’s actually a comprehensive music theory education. This is something I personally had been after for ages.
I don’t read music too well, so was always a bit deterred by theory books. But the real issue was that every book I looked at seemed to regard theory as ‘this is a crotchet’ and ‘this is a scale’. I wanted to grasp the underlying structure of music.
This is what Julian’s course does. He opens your eyes to how music works. He explains it so clearly. Every lesson is a revelation.
My daughter would agree. She studied music at university, and is a naturally gifted musician. However, she always struggled a little with the modes. When I showed her Julian’s modal lessons, she was amazed. She told me she learned more in those 30 minutes than in three years at college.
So thanks Julian for giving me so much insight and so many ‘aha’ moments over the last few months. I look forward to re-watching many times and putting into practice all your tips and advice.
And I’d advise anyone who can’t decide whether to buy the course or not to do so. You won’t regret it.”

“Wow, played all videos and feel like I have taken a 4 year Berkley in 5 hours. A wonderful thesis in music theory and practical. I think your presentation hits on all cylinders and will be a wonderful tool for students. Way ahead of your original works which in themselves were excellent.
I’m just up to your Transcribing Jazz Lesson part 3 and what a wonderful piece of work that is. The way you have created your Ear Training course is pure genius and I realize I need to go right back to the beginning and slowly work through it. Not just from an ear training standpoint but there is so much theory in it, it is a gold mine of information and presented in a way I enjoy – factual and to the point without wasting time.”

“These new tutorials are outstanding Julian! Especially for pianists like me who lack the fundamentals and have an insatiable passion to improve ear training. You so very beautifully explain in simplest terms the spectral relationships between melody, harmony and bass within an octave. I’ve spent a lifetime sitting in front of the piano trying to understand it and these new tutorials give us all a much greater shortcut to do just that!
I realized as we drove yesterday to go fishing and listened to pop radio that I was using my ear in a new and different way, to understand and study intervals. I feel had I been taught this particular method I’d have been conscious of my abilities at a much earlier age. It makes me smile to finally realize at my age I can do this. It was you who awakened me to the logic and process.”John Riger, Aspen, Colorado.
“Hey Julian! Just checked your ear training playlist and I’ve listened to it already for the 8th time, and I love it!!! Great examples and I love your melodies. For me, and I can only speak for me, the content is clear and on point. I really like the way you understand music, for me you are the best teacher!
I started playing keys about 1.5 half year ago. Since then I’ve watched so many videos about chord functions, relative major minor stuff etc, but since hearing your ear training I’ve got a different view on chords and intervals in a very positive way. I used to struggle with recognizing chords and used to feel overwhelmed, but you’ve given me the tools which makes it a lot easier to transcribe chords.
Since I heard your ear training material I listen to music in a different way – really thanks for that, it makes me greedy for more! Thanks again, and I’m waiting like a child for christmas for more new stuff!!!”Adrian Ryzka, Vienna, Austria.
