This is my 9 year old student Dede who has a terrific memory, good ear and of course a sense of fun. She learnt this purely by watching me and by listening to me. There are no notes, no sheet music, no transcriptions, no counting. She doesn’t even know it is in E major. Theory takes a backseat. Listening and watching is THE original way to learn music. Instinctive, spontaneous and quick.
