Here we're starting with basics of how to read music fast... It's pretty fundamental for those have been reading music for a while, but we've got to start somewhere!
Now, before we begin with all the black dots and music notes, there is one very important, and indeed vital thing to remember. A point that will allow you to relax, absorb information with ease, and learn almost subconsciously – and that point is – do NOT be frightened by the music on the page!
This might seem a very obvious and simple thing to take into account, but fear of the notes on the page is by far the biggest hurdle. It all looks so complicated at first, and discovering how to read music seems like a mystery beyond discovery!
Those new to learning how to read music notes will look at a page of notes and it will look as friendly and simple as if it were written in a foreign language – and this immediate impression fills them dread at how long it will take to understand any of it! But relax – the beginning stages of learning to read music are nowhere near as complicated as you think – so as I say, do NOT be frightened at what you see.
Within a very short time it will begin to make a lot of sense.
Your brain needs to be in a state where it can absorb information without it feeling like hard work – and if you are apprehensive and worried at the very start, you will only make the learning process harder for your self.
So are you relaxed? Good. Before we get on to the basics, here are a few motivational tips that are proved methods of helping you to take in information such that you will end up processing it subconsciously. By using these simple but effective music reading techniques, you will end up learning how to read music with the same flow as if you were reading the words on this page. At first you might find you are reading a few musical syllables at a time – as you might when you learned to read - ‘mus-ic-al’ for example, taking time to work out what’s going on with the notes, but quickly those musical syllables will join-up and your reading will flow!
