pict Playing by ear vs. sight-reading (44) RE: Playing by ear vs. sight-reading 26 May 02

Sight reading is useful but a good knowledge of theory is far more useful I learnt by ear then gradually learnt theory if I had to do it again I would do it in exactly the same order.I think being able to play what you hear in your head from solos to large structures is the best point to get to musically and in music the ear rules supreme.
