Product Description

As a "music coach" for decades, Teresa Young truly enjoys making note-reading skills development fun! Use her music reader cheat sheet along with some basic music-reading flash cards to make a timed game of note recognition, for points. 

Here's how to play a fun, effective game:

With a teacher or other knowledgeable helper as score-keeper and time-keeper (four minutes works great), gradually progress up and down the treble and bass staves to ledger lines, over a period of a few weeks. Beat your last score each time to fire up your music-reading skills.

One fun, motivating way of scoring:

  • 5 points for notes on the staff
  • 10 points for notes up to one ledger line above or below the staff, including the space notes just above and below
  • 25 points for notes at and beyond two ledger lines

Also, make it an "open book" game at first, then set the cheat sheet aside, picking it up as needed, then not at all. Next, make sight-reading actual music a game too, keeping it equally light and fun. And take little mental breaks as needed.

After all, learning any language is a neurological process, and music is no different. Using Teresa's enjoyable approach to note recognition, before you know it this foundational skill will become second-nature. Then just keep it fresh. Because, bottom line, "use it or lose it" absolutely applies to music-reading. The more you read, the better you'll read. So go for it, and have fun!
