Welcome to Julian Bradley's ear training podcast for musicians! Learn to play music by ear using proven practice methods, while avoiding common mistakes that many musicians make. Episodes include ear training practice at the piano, college style ear training tests, and Q+A sessions to help you learn to play music by ear. Julian is a jazz pianist from the U.K. and has a masters degree in music. All episodes are based on Julian's 'Fixed Key Learning' method - where musicians transcribe all songs in the same key (we use C minor).
