Start Learning to Read Music

The funny thing to do when you play the piano is to lift the piano bench, stretching your fingers and go for a song you already know, or a solo piece that is familiar. What is not so much fun is sitting in banks trying to learn piano so all the doodles and the average points of musical notation, and try to read as quickly as possible. Often, the music you're trying to learn to be launched in a cabinet of scores, not to be seen until the motivation going to attack again. Is learning to read music so important? Do not just be better to focus on aspects of the game that is fun and easy?

The answer is a resounding "No". To become a complete musician, the difficult aspects of music will have to be studied along with the fun parts. But to say that I am misrepresenting the reality of learning music. The fact is that all areas of musical learning can be fun, and increasingly able to read music, you're enjoying the experience.

The basics are quite simple notation. The note on page represents either a break or a note to play, and the length of playing time for note or rest. The difficulty, of course, is learning to understand these symbols well enough to become second nature.

If you have decided to start practicing how to read music, make sure you do it constantly. Do not just put in both learning and can, while their motivation and then forget about it until the urge to learn again reappears. It is best to practice reading the music for ten minutes every day to practice for a full hour every six days. You want the meanings of the symbols to paste on the head the same way language does.

Notice for a moment how easy it is for you to understand everything I write here. If you've ever tried to learn a language with a single set of characters, you know how difficult it can get into your head that the wavy lines mean. But when it comes to reading in English, do not think of wavy lines or letters, even individual words just glaring seemingly effortless us by our brain.

The same can be achieved by reading musical notation, and is called sight reading. Sight-reading can only be achieved with the classical method of practice, practice, practice.

Remember, when you find something in music that is difficult to learn, it's a good thing. The hardest thing is for you to do, the more your brain will benefit from tackling the problem head on. Some musicians are focused on the repetition of solo pieces that are well known and can play fast, while some are always looking for what they do not know, so they can do best. This is what separates a great musician of all others.
