Play it by Ear

Extend your repertoire, develop musicianship & make new friends.............


Kitty’s Play It By Ear evening classes are designed to get musicians playing together in a relaxed and friendly setting.  All melody instruments are welcome and no formal musical training is needed as the tunes are taught 'by ear' without using musical notation.  Supporting course materials - videos, sheet music & CDs included.


Each course ends with a social event - party, pub session or dance.

Kitty also runs Play It By Ear workshops further afield on request.

What people say about Play it by Ear :

Thanks for another enjoyable course with amazing tunes and a great CD... I love that I can just sit down and play without getting out the music.   Janet

I am really enjoying your workshops… I ‘m finding that the tunes stick in my head and fingers much better when I have mainly learned them by ear, so thanks again!   Steve

The CDs are so helpful for improving each tune and for practising playing with other people. Still haven't mastered that one…..but I just love playing, its great!   Liz

I felt a bit overwhelmed to start with but have grown in confidence with each set of tunes and feel lucky to have access to your expert teaching. I look forward to the next one!   - Zanna

Thank you for this term's course I have really enjoyed it… you are such a brilliant teacher and musician.  Pete
