Play What You Hear Program Review By Oleg from Russia
Why? Because with Tomi and the other ones in the group it was so much fun. Having the opportunity to start the webcam and play for like a bunch of people all over the world was like a huge kick for me, and I always loved the reactions, and to give reactions to others.I have enjoyed to watch and hear the performances of other players.
And I highly recommend this program. Tomi you're the best!
Wow, I couldn't believe how much I have learnt in such a short time. I was a raw beginner when I started this course and didn't know much about playing music. The class had experienced players at all levels and I felt a little daunted. But with Tomi's encouragement and sense of fellowship from the class I have been rewarded with a knowledge that has helped me to enjoy actually learning songs and playing the guitar now. Thanks Tomi.

Hi, My name is Ricardo and I live in Sweden. Before I joined to the play what you hear program, I was looking for a guitar course as I wanted to learn more about the guitar. I came across with play what you hear program. I loved the idea to be able to play by ear, something that was a bit hard to believe just with one course. I was also afraid of waste my money with an online course as I had the option to take it live in Sweden.
It is well worth it this course, you get lot of useful information for the price you pay. The material is excellent, easy to understand and practice at home. The live sessions are very useful as you get good information there, however, the quality of the webcam is not the best, but with the material and summary videos are an excellent way to understand the class.
I recommend you to work hard, do all homeworks and be patient, as half of the course contains lot of theory. Don't try to run before you can walk. The fun part will come later and you will realize that you are able to get songs by ear. Nothing comes by magic, just follow the course, practice at home and you will forget to use tabs again.
It feels so nice to start making your own arrangements !!
Tomi is an excellent teacher and he will help you if you have problems to understand something.
Here is an example how CJ has developed after the Program
My name is Dag and I’m 32 years old. I’ve been playing the guitar on and off since 2006, and playing fingerstyle the last four years. Never had any professional teaching a mainly taught myself looking at tabs and trying to copy things from youtube and different lessons sites.
Discovered Tomi on youtube and visited his site. Play without tabs? Didn’t seem possible. But after I bought a DVD from Tomi I was convinced. This was a good way to learn. And when he then launched Play what you hear program I decided to join. The course started with us learning to use our ears. This was really a big challenge, but as we practice the lessons online it all started to come together. The method to learn chord shapes, the cages system, notes on the fretboard, finding keys and notes, suddenly seemed not so hard as it did before. This course suits for everyone, from beginners to the more advanced players. I'm now able to find the right chords, and make arrangements by ear. No tabs!!. If you do join make sure you are available to join the online lessons, here I learned a lot! You also get lessons that you will prepare for the next session at his website. The consist of written material and videos. I recommend this course for anyone who wants to learn to make own arrangements and learn more about the guitar. And also, it's great fun! Now I preparing for Tomi's next course, AllEars Elite Group!
