Overview

Even if you have never read a note of music before. The Basic Guide to How to Read Music will teach you quickly and painlessly! A few hours with this book will teach you the principles of reading music in staff notation. After a few more hours, you can easily learn how to read almost any melody and play it on a piano. If you could once read music but have forgotten how, this book will refresh your memory. It contains all the terms and symbols you are likely to come across when studying music, and explains them fully. If you are learning to play an instrument or learning to sing, this book becomes absolutely essential. Few teachers have sufficient time in an instrumental or voice lesson to explain the written language of music in any depth, and The Basic Guide to How to Read Music fills the need most students have for such information in greater detail. That makes this book ideal for the classroom or private lessons, or for you at home.
