"Lisa is the perfect teacher. Her hands-on teaching approach is invaluable to my learning and helps me make progress more easily."
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.
“It’s like learning the best language in the world!”
"I’ve taken piano lessons in the past, but not recently. I thought I’d give Pianote a try, and I’m glad I decided to.
I’m learning to read sheet music quicker than I ever did while taking private piano lessons."

"From the first couple of days of joining Lisa has been there to keep me on my game. I really can’t ask for a better piano teacher, she is simply extraordinary! Every single time I ask a question I get an answer. Lisa may not know it, but she is truly a natural at delivering and teaching the material."

"This was my first try reading music, and Lisa made it really simple. It was just the right learning process for me, and it’s changed my playing a lot.
I would encourage others to enroll with Pianote. It’s worth the time and money"
