Suggested Reading:How To Read Music

Posted by Ms.Tris On July - 29 - 2010

I am sitting here in awe. I’ve had this book for over a year and finally picked it up again last Sunday. It is written so clear and I honestly learned to read a basic melody in a couple hours.

Looking at music scores has been the same as looking at foreign language for me. I learned a tiny bit of notation when I was in grade school. After a while I just got off the path and into other things. Since I started the site, I have been studying theory much more. I’ve been learning scales, notes, chords, and key signatures. I haven’t learned to read them on a “stave” (the sets of lines where music is written).

I try to explain what I am learning; here, in a way easy to understand. I also share the books and sites I use most. Most of what I’ve shared so far, only uses the alphabetical letters to write or read music. This is cool, but it really relies on memory or having to have references available. Now that I know some music theory basics, it’s time to take it to the next level, (which should have been the first level). It’s time to “read” and understand all the things mentioned above by learning music notation.

If you have the opportunity, remember it’s best to take a few courses on theory. If you are new to music theory, music notation is the way to start. I skipped around notation for many years, and my musical journey has taken me back.

This book cost around 10 bucks, and you can get from the MsTrisMusic Amazon Store:
