Many of you may not know that the National Library Service has been keeping the full libraries of Guitar by Ear and Piano by Ear lessons available for its clients to check out. The most recent order of 117 titles will mean they have well over 900 “by ear” titles ready for loan to their patrons.

These “by ear” lessons use no Braille or print to teach complete songs in an all-audio format. They also carry beginner courses (“Intro to the Guitar for the Visually Impaired,” “Intro to the Piano for the Visually Impaired,” etc.) for the most popular musical instruments. These courses offer absolute beginners the basics they need in order to start using the “by ear” lessons. To find out more go to the Web site at, or call the toll free number:  1-888-778-1828.
