Reading notes and music on a page can be really confusing. But it doesn’t have to be!
Lisa Witt has been teaching the piano for 18 years and has seen countless students struggle to grasp the concept of musical notation.
“Looking at musical notation can be really daunting, especially if you’re trying to learn on your own,” she says.
“With this training pack, you'll learn the concepts in simple terms, so you can approach music with confidence.”
Lisa has designed Sight-Reading Made Simple to teach you how to read notes on a musical staff, as well as give you tips on how to sight-read quickly, so you can start playing songs.
“You won’t have to sit through hours of lessons. In just a few minutes, you’ll be on your way to reading notes on a musical score,” she says.
“But more importantly, you’ll understand WHY the notes are arranged the way they are.”
That’s the key to unlocking your potential with sight-reading. Understanding how the keys on the piano translate to the page will open up a whole new world of song-learning (and writing) possibilities.
