I receive so many requests from students that I finally need to write out this unique method – step by step – exercises by exercises – so that all BEGINNERS will gain confidence to read notes quickly and overcome the fear of reading music notes.

This course can also be used by Music Teachers or Parents who want to teach their children to ‘Read Music Fast’. You can use these videos to guide your children in this Music Note Attack Method.  Children learn much faster in this way as they learn to visualize these notes in their brain.  In fact, they learn much faster than adults because they follow instructions, whereas adults are not as good as following through instructions.

Reading Music:  Traditional Way vs Non-Traditional Way

It is FUN to learn to read music.  There are some basic music fundamentals that you need to learn in order to be able to start reading music.  You need to understand the music staff, the grand staff, the lines, the spaces, the alphabets, the letter names, treble clef, bass clef & middle C.  I will use very focused videos to show you how to understand the basics so that you have a clear foundation to work on as you proceed to learn to read music notes.

Many people think that it is difficult to read music but it is NOT.

I show you the Traditional Method of how students are taught to read music. The Traditional method WORKS but it is slow going. It is good for you to know the Traditional Method.  We don’t want to throw away what works.  We want to improve on ‘what works’ to make it ‘more fun’ for beginners to overcome the frustrations of reading music!  This is how my “Note Attack & Say It” Method got developed as I saw the joy of seeing students gaining confidence in these drills and exercises of moving from Level 1 (The Note Attack Method) to Level 2 (Application of the Note Attack Method) & then onto Level 3 (Drilling Exercises with Speed).

**************************************************

In this course, you will have 1 to 2 minute videos to arouse your interest to learn to read music quickly with this non-traditional method.

No draggy long videos but each video is to to the point!

Each video has a specific topic.

Each topic is focused so that you can refer to the videos quickly for reference.

The whole idea of the course is to help you build a GOOD foundation to musical terms so that you can quickly go and read music using my Music Note Attack Method to gain confidence right away.

*****************************************************

Rosa’s Music Note Attack Method:

1. Intuitive Visual Recognition

2. Visual Memory in the Brain

3. Say it out Loud to store in Brain

4. Practice Smart – Exercises

Music is actually the simplest written language for anyone to learn. You only need to know 7 alphabet letters: A B C D E F G. Once you learn the basics, and know how to make use of what the traditional method teaches, you can then use my Unique method to tap into the power of reading music notes quickly with confidence. This will help you overcome all the years of fear and frustrations in reading music, and the reward you receive is for a life time.

You will soon discover reading music is a lot of fun when you use my Music Note Attack Method! It helps you process your learning quickly and retain everything into memory! There is no need to count. No need to fumble your way through.

You learn to see the notes and read them like you read the names of your friends.

********************************************************

This is a UNIQUE Method that I develop for BEGINNERS who wants to learn how to read notes and to read them QUICKLY!

  • We are dealing specifically in the area of reading the music notes on music staff in both the Treble Clef and Bass Clef.

  • We are NOT dealing with reading other music symbols, rhythm,  or value and duration of notes.

We want to quickly help BEGINNERS to master the Music Language of A-B-C-D-E-F-G so that they can quickly identify the notes on the music staff like they call out the names of their friends.

Foundation to Western Music Notations - How Music is written

1
1. The Music Staff

To Read Music, you need to understand Music Staff.


The MUSIC STAFF is a set of 5 horizontal lines on which musical notes are written to indicate pitch and time.


In Western musical notation, the staff, or stave is a set of 5 Horizontal lines & 4 spaces.


Each line and each space represent a different musical pitch


The higher the note is on the staff, the higher the pitch is being played.

2
2. Treble Clef

To Read Music, you need to understand Treble Clef.


Treble Clef is also sometimes called G Clef because the loop curls around the G line

3
3. The Bass Clef

To read music, you need to understand the Bass Clef.


Bass Clef is also sometimes called F Clef because the F line is in between the 2 dots.

4
The Treble Clef

The Bass Clef

Read Music: The 7 Music Names

1
The 7 Music Names correspond to the 7 Alphabets

To Read Music, you need to know the 7 Music Names

  • Music speaks through the names of the notes. The names of the notes represent pitches.
  • A same note has the same pitch but it can be in higher octave or lower octave.

I have good news for you. You don't need to learn a lot of names.


There are only 7 names to the music notes. Isn't this great? It is even easier than the English language.


You don't even need to know 26 alphabets.


You only need to know 7 names which correspond to the 7 notes.


The 7 notes are named after the first seven letters of the alphabet.


A - B - C - D - E - F - G


After G, it repeats and goes back to A - B - C …..etc

There is no H, I J….etc.


If you know your alphabets, then you already know ONE important thing about Music note-names. They follow the letters of the alphabets.


You need to learn ONLY 7 Alphabets: A B C D E F G


This is all you need to learn - just master these 7 letters of the Alphabet.


That's how easy it is.


Get this into your head so that you can overcome all FEAR of reading music notes.

2
The 7 Names to the Treble Clef Staff

To Read Music, recognize the names of the lines & spaces in Treble Clef:


Each line and each space has a musical name or music note assigned to them.


They tell us which note to play in our instrument and how long to play it.


This course is about "Reading Music Notes", so we will not study the duration value of notes which are related to timing.


Treble Clef Notes:


The 5 Lines have these names:

Line 1 - E

Line 2 - G

Line 3 - B

Line 4 - D

Line 5 - F


The 5 spaces have these names:

Space 1 - F

Space 2 - A

Space 3 - C

Space 4 - E



3
The 7 Names to the Bass Clef

To Read Music, you need to recognize the names of the lines & spaces in Bass Clef:


The Bass Clef also has 5 lines and 5 spaces.


This is good news as you can see there is a distinct pattern in music. You need to recognize patterns. In that way, you will find it very easy to READ Notes.


The 5 Lines in Bass Clef have these names:


Line 1 - G

Line 2 - B

Line 3 - D

Line 4 - F

Line 5 - A


The 5 spaces in Bass Clef have these names:


Space 1 - G

Space 2 - E

Space 3 - C

Space 4 - A

Read Music: The Middle C

1
The Grand Staff

If we combine the Treble Clef & Bass Clef together, we have the entire Grand Staff.


How many lines are there on the Grand starff?


There are 11 lines.


If we read music like this, it is very clumsy


Notice how the middle line - C - separates the Treble Clef & Bass Clef

2
The Middle C

The C line in the Grand Staff is actually the Middle C.

This is the center point of orientation for both Treble Clef & Bass Clef.

I am sure you have heard a lot about people saying that you need to find the Middle C. That is where Middle C.

The Middle C line there separates the Treble Clef and the Bass Clef, and this is what you often see in sheet music.

Read Music Music Hot Tips

1
Read Music Hot Tip 1 - When notes ascend, alphabet letters go forward

Read Music Fast: Know your Alphabets

Look at the alphabet notes: C D E F G A B

  • When notes ascend, alphabets go forward.
  • As notes go 'higher', the letter names follow the pattern of the alphabet.

Once you reach the letter G, the pattern returns to Letter A and continues on in this pattern.

**Ascending Order of notes - Alphabets move forward**
2
Read Music Hot Tip 2 - When notes descend, alphabet letters go backwards

Read Music Fast - Learn this Hot Tip


Look at the alphabet notes: C B A G F E D C


When notes descend, alphabets move BACKWARDS.


So as notes go lower down, the letter names follow the pattern of the alphabet BACKWARDS.


Once you read the letter A, the pattern returns to letter G and continues on.


**Descending Order of notes - Alphabets move backward**

3
Secret Tip To Read Music Fast - Practice Forward & Backward Reading

Read Music Notes Fast - Learn to say your musical alphabets forward and backward.


  • Everyone knows A B C's
  • But how many of us can say the alphabets backwards as fast as we can say it forward?
  • Spend some time doing this today before your move on to the next page.
  • To say it forward: A B C D E F G
  • To say it backward: G F E D C B A
  • Close your eyes to say it forward: A B C D E F G
  • Close your eyes to say it backward: G F E D C B A
Here's the Secret:Master these 7 alphabets saying them forward and backward. This will help you quickly to identify the notes that are on the staff.
4
Saying Alphabet Letters Backward

Read Music Notes on the Entire Grand Staff - From Bass Clef G to Treble Clef G

1
The Grand Staff - Read Music Notes from G to G

Read Music Fast - Know the Alphabets forward & backward


Look at the notes on the screen.


1. Read the notes as ascending order starting at the very left:


Bass Clef: E F G A B C D E F G A B


Treble Clef: C D E F G A B C D E F G


2. If we reverse this and read the notes starting on the right in descending order starting at the G note in Treble Clef.


Treble Clef: G F E D C B A G F E D C


Bass Clef: C B A G F E D C B A G F E

Music Score covers 3 Octaves - G to G

Traditional Method to Reading Music Notes - Using Acronyms

1
Read Music: Use Acronyms for Treble Clef

Read Music: For the LINES: To help you retain the letters in your memory, you can use this word cue:

Every

Good

Boy

Does

Fine

They correspond to E G B D F

For the SPACES: To help you retain the letters in your memory, you can use this word cue: FACE

It spells the word FACE.

So that is easy to remember.

2
Read Music: Use Acronyms for Bass Clef

Read Music


For the LINES: To help you retain the letters in your memory, you can use this word cue:

Good

Boys

Fine

Always


They correspond to G B D F A


For the SPACES: To help you retain the letters in your memory, you can use this word cue:

All

Cows

Eat

Grass

Traditional Method Works
4
Traditional Method Works but Slow

In this course, I purposely show you the traditional method of how students are taught when they read music.

The traditional method works but it is SLOW going because every time you try to identify the note, you need to read out the complete sentence.

In my many years of teaching students piano, I find that they often get stuck in the traditional method and then they get so scared and fearful of moving on to learn to read music.

I try to understand what their problems are and see in what ways I can make reading music faster and more fun for them so that in the process of learning, they will not get so frustrated that they quit.

This is how I came up with my unique method.


Rosa's Unique Method: Read Music Fast with Note Attack & Say It Approach

1
Read Music Notes Fast: Music Note Attack & Say It Method

My Read Music Method is unique in that I develop this method myself.

It is EZ and it is FAST and it is FUN!

This method will help you retain memory much longer when you identify the names of these notes.

It thrives in 2 areas to help people learn smartly:

1. Visual Recognition

2. Aural Memory in the Brain

I've tested this method in workshops and students and the results are often great. They get 90% correct in the first 7 days, so this is how I started developing this 7 Day program that you see in Level 2.

For this course, I show you the method and how it works.

If you want a systematic program to get a complete training, then you can move on to Read Music Fast Level 2 after you finish this course.
