Every Child Has The Right To A Free Music Education!
May 2011 – Brooklyn, NY –

Juilliard Graduate Offers On YouTube His 18 Hour Ear-Training Course For Young Musicians Around The World Who Want To Develop Perfect Pitch.

Romanian-born New Yorker David Livianu has completed a monumental ear-training manual for young musicians; it contains 32 lessons with over 1,700 pages of sheet music and more than 18 hours of pre-recorded audios & video sing-along exercises.

300 pages of theoretical analysis is included in the enhanced PDF version, which includes the printable sheet music.

Livianu challenges the myth that “Perfect Pitch” is a genetic gift and sets out to prove that anyone who practices these exercises diligently can succeed. His belief is that “Learning Music Starts with Singing” and “Dedicated Practice Makes Perfect” no matter what type of music you’re interested in.

David Livianu draws on over 45 years of music experience and has set out to make this material available to children around the world with the help of YouTube.

Mr. Livianu is a native of Romania, born in 1955, and holds a Masters in Music from the Juilliard School, where he has studied composition under the late Milton Babbitt.

David Livianu was featured in 2001 on 20/20 with Barbara Walters for his humanitarian work with older orphans in Eastern Europe; in 1994 Livianu published the 1st international adoption guide for the countries of Eastern Europe, 3 volumes, 2,800 pages.

Livianu’s ambitious project is called “i-Learn Music, 4 Free”, and contains 2 Volumes:
#1 “i-Learn Perfect Pitch, 4 Free”, released & #2 “i-Learn 2 Sight-Sing, 4 Free”, to be released.
