A new method for music learning based on solid research and experience allowing you to reach your potential faster.

Meet Barry. He’s a bassplayer who’s been playing for 3 years – he’s been to a few teachers and had a ball learning songs but also realized that there were things that other bassplayers seemed to just know.


Now that he’s joined a new band writing and playing originals, one thing that escapes him is how to write an interesting bassline – his practice always seems to be just noodling and some of it sounds great until he tries to use it in the band.
Barry: “I wish someone could explain it to me – even the guys in the band who’ve been to Uni and studied music don’t seem to have the answeres I’m looking for…”
“Well, there is no escaping the practice you need to do, both mental and physical, but there are a few concepts that are considered advanced that really shouldn’t be.

The Earworm Method uses the 80/20 Principle to get you there in the simplest way. That is covering the the most important 20% of concepts to get you 80% of the way.
Scales – 4 bar phrases – A unique approach to learning scales that allows you to play any key in any time signature easily and fluently.
Everything is a medium tempo – learning how to think about rhythm to unlock your potential to play tempoes at either extreme.
Reading – A historical view of practical reading that gets you out of the Every Good Boy Deserves Fruit trap.
The Dynamics/Beat Placement/Pitch relationship
Key vs Tonality – why some chord progressions work when they shouldn’t!?!
Rehearsal/Practice – knowing the difference and how to structure both.

Once you’ve got these basic concepts stuck in your head you’ll have a thirst for knowledge that will get you 100% of the way there.
