In this course, you’ll learn how to read sheet music (traditional staff notation), a skill that will give you access to hundreds of years of music. You’ll also learn some of the logic behind this type of notation, which will give you the ability to quickly learn other types of notation (yes, there’s more than one!)
Along the way, you’ll learn some music fundamentals, so if you’re at all curious about how music works and why it makes us feel the way it does, then this course is a great first step to exploring your interests in music.
The course is completely free and has tons of resources that you can use to help you create your own music or to teach it further down the road.
Is It Hard?
Learning to read sheet music is a little more involved than spending your day scrolling through social media, but it doesn’t have to be harder than your toughest math class!
I use a lot of analogies, examples, and give you the chance to practice along the way, courtesy of musictheory.net. That way, you can avoid frustration as you learn. It’s much better than sitting with a book because you’ll see how easy it is to create your own music along the way too!
You’ll have access to a course forum, where you and other students can ask and answer each others’ questions, and you can email me any time throughout the course. And as always, there’s a growing list of Resources and terms on the Glossary page for other concepts that may come up along the way.
Let’s get started! What do you have to lose? It’s free, after all…
I’m excited to make music with you!
