    1. Hello Dave,
      Many of my students (over 100) have learned to play by ear using the book & CD method “New Ears Resolution.” https://craigbuhler.com/2007/07/05/can-you-learn-to-play-by-ear/
      i am not sure whether any of them had the exact dislexcia condition which plagues you. But it’s worth a try.
      Are you able to play along with a CD? Some students read the music on the page, while others just play along with the CD. As you play the exercises, you are developing “hand-ear co-ordination.” Maybe this would help you learn how to flow with your ideas more smoothly.
