Music  is primordially an aural activity.  Here are  tunes to learn by ear,  one step at a time with video clips posted on Youtube, as well as reference recordings for classical study pieces.  Most tunes and recordings are just in a basic version.  You should also listen to other examples on YouTube, Pandora, Naxos, etc. or buy recordings for ideas on style, interpretation and accompaniments.

Eventually you should use something like Amazing Slow Downer to easily learn bigger chunks of music by ear and to make your own short loops to polish a small section.  It is my hope that these clips will be helpful to beginners until their ability to play by ear is more developed.  Please let me know of any glitches.

This is a large project, so I ask my students to have patience!http://www.ronimusic.com/slowdown.htmHome.htmlshapeimage_1_link_0
