Learning to Play your Instrument
It's a Language, Not Just a Bunch of Notes
Learning to read music is more than just learning the notes. Music is just like learning a language. You learn the alphabet and numbers and then you put them together and group in series or sets. Then you learn to use those groups to say words which lead you to phrases and statements.
You need to learn these systems as quick as possible to be able to truly become a great musician. The problem is that most students learn the principles or theory a little at a time, and they never learn to really apply them until years later.
The typical methods of teaching never get to the heart of the matter. That's the understanding and application of core music principles, they all think you have to go to college to do that.
