Learning to play by ear!! Should I bring it to my instructor to critique/ improvement? July 18, 2016 at 5:05 am #16835 HDuaneazParticipant Contribution Score 99 I would take it to my teacher. Why not? Personally, I feel I play better by ear because reading the music is one less thing to think about. I play by ear all the time.

Using the music, you can only pay attention to reading the music. Playing by ear, trains the ear and the muscles of playing to common neural networks. It’s a must!
