Can I Learn to Read Music?

 

I've taught many people to play the guitar, and to read notation (written music). Kids, teenagers, and adults. I know I can teach you, too! Here's your first lesson. (FREE!)

If you can count to four, and you know the first seven letters of the alphabet, you can learn music. Even if you didn't know any more numbers or letters than that!

 

Count to four - 1, 2, 3, 4. Do it again. 1, 2, 3, 4. Again, and again, and again. Most music is made with a count of 4!

 

Now it's not just 1234 all run together, but spread out evenly like a clock ticking - tick...tock...tick...tock...tick...tock...tick...tock...tick...tock...tick...tock. It goes on and on, because songs are a lot longer than 1234. Think about that clock ticking, and try this -

 

Count and pat your knee at the same time, one pat for each count-1...2...3...4...pat...pat...pat...pat...1...2...3...4...tick...tock...tick...tock...1...2...3...4...

 

That's all there is to counting music!

 

And the letters - A,B,C,D,E,F,G, are the names of the notes you see on a printed page of music - just seven letters! So, if you are reading this, you already know everything you need to know to learn to read music!

 

So, DON'T WORRY! You can DO this!
