This is to inform you that the RNIB (Royal National Institute for the Blind) has just received over 1,000 CDs of Bill Brown's "Intro to" courses, "Guitar by Ear", and "Piano by Ear" music instructional lessons.
The "Intro to" courses teach the basics of a particular instrument using no written or Braille notation. These courses are taught totally "by ear" and are suitable for absolute beginners.
The "Guitar by Ear" and "Piano by Ear" lessons are individual CD's that teach an entire song all the way through using no written or Braille notation. These are suitable for those who have taken the "Intro" courses mentioned above or who already have basic skills on the piano or guitar.
