You develop mental strength and memory from struggle.

The “struggle” that we run from when trying to learn chords and movements by memory is the very thing that will cause the massive gains that we want.

I experienced a massive Ear Surge growth in 2016. Not because I was far better than everyone else, but because I refused to quit. I remember nights where my entire body would be shaking, and I would be drenched in sweat. From transcribing!!!!!! I thought something was wrong with me cause I would feel faint at times. The chords and movements that I was hearing from Cory Henry and Travis Sayles were beyond my current level. Period.

Looking back I realized that I was pushing myself past my limit. *I didn't want to be embarrassed at having put myself out there and not deliver. Yes it was fear of failure, fear of embarrassment that pushed me forward. Regardless, it served as a motivator for me at that time.

It is this experience that has shaped the website, content, and teaching that you have come to know and appreciate. And I would do a disservice not to mention this particular struggle with you.

I would like to introduce you to the piano exercises that I am currently memorizing or have memorized for the last 25+ years of playing. It is my hope that you will take some of these exercises and add it to your practice regimen remembering that consistency and repetition is where you will find your gains.
