If want to know how to read sheet music like the pros do then this may be the most important page you'll ever read. Learn the same methods used by top players to easily read sheet music.
From taking your first steps in reading music, to those that know the basics, let us show you the proper way of reading guitar sheet music. In the process you'll not only learn techniques for mastering reading but also to help you make quantum leaps as a guitarist. Not only that, but we'll show you how the process can be easy and fun.
If your reading isn't up to par, then going through material will feel exactly like this. Moving like a snail in slow motion, never getting to enjoy the music because all your time is spent trying to figure it out.
Do you look at it wondering what exactly does it say? All the pro's read, but does it seem a tad intimidating as you think about learning it? Do you resort to tab, because notation might as well be another language as far as you're concerned?
Are you ready for joining the ranks of the professional players by learning how to read guitar sheet music?
If you know how to read sheet music but it's a slow and painful process that seems to kill all the joy or if you spend much more time figuring out the notation, rather than enjoying the music, then this course is for you.
If you have no idea how to read and you've been getting along just on tabs, then this course is for you.
Learning how to read music has a lot of benefits, besides the obvious ones.
Here are just some of these benefits:
We already noted that tab gives you less than 8% of the information notation gives you, and we're not kidding. Tab is numbers, which are great... for math. But for music you need notes.
This is one that most students don't get. How is reading connected with technique? The easiest way to explain it would be to use an analogy: If you were a student, knowing how to read books would give you access to school, education and a better understanding of your craft. If you learn to read music you get access to the wisdom of pro musicians and join their ranks. You are able to speak the language of the Masters and learn from them.
This also brings with a giant growth in technique. Staying in the "cave" and learning music by numbers isn't the way to go.
Would you take seriously a person claiming to be a writer that doesn't know how to read or write? The same goes for music. You must be able to understand the language. This is not so you can be a snob and walk around with you nose held up, but rather because it allows you "entrance" into the circles of professionals across the ages such as Mozart and Beethoven. The knowlege you'll gain is invaluable if you really want to grow as a guitarist.
Without proper reading skills you cannot master rhythm. Tab gives you no information. Learn and understand rhythm intimately. Music IS rhythm. Not all musicians play melodies (think of a drummer) but all musicians play rhythm. Get the polished rhythm skills that you see the pros use. It can ONLY be done by learning to read music.
By learning how to read you get to enjoy the instrument. Instead of spending time frustrated as to why things don't work, you'll actually have fun and enjoy playing.
Yes, there's a lot more to be gained by learning how to read sheet music that what you might think on the surface?
Most people think that learning how to read sheet music just opens the door to being able to read. But there are a lot more benefits to being able to read sheet music than you might think.
Spread over a period of 8 weeks (you can stop and continue as you wish), this course takes you from the ABC's of reading to concepts and strategies to make you master sheet music. Enjoy freedom as you learn to play in all positions on the guitar neck. Get greater insight into interpretation as you understand the flow of music that only notation can reveal.
Learn the secrets of reading music that keep you from feeling frustrated and open the doors to enjoying your instrument.
If just giving you a book would work, then all the schools in the world would just give students books and then ask them back for the exams 4 months later. In reality it doesn't work this way. Structured learning gives REAL results.
Our course is stuctured like a real course taught in top notch schools. The only difference is that you have the flexibility of doing the work at home, any time you want. You can even pause the course, just let us know and we'll put it on hold until you're ready to contine.
We are using innovative methods and highly expericed teachers to show make sure you're learning and getting results.
Learning to read sheet music like the pros can take your music skills to another level. If you're been reading only tabs up until now, or if you know how to read notation but it's a slow, tedious process (joy-killer), this course has been created especially for you.
The importance of being able to read music cannot be overstated. Many think that it's just a way to know which note to play on which string, a sort of fancier version of tabs. However, nothing could be further from the truth.
Music isn't 5th fret fourth string. That's like saying you're a Man/Woman, and you eat and sleep. That may be true but hardly anything useful results from such a simple statement. True musicianship requires you to know the notes, their relations, their phrasing and so forth.
Many students have a true desire to better their guitar skills. They LOVE their instrument and are committed to it.
Unfortunately most miss the most important point when it comes to having success on the guitar... and that is: INVESTING IN THEMSELVES.
In order to get the results you want you must invest in the most important thing of all: YOU!
Knowing how to read music like the pros is crucial in today's saturated music market. Yet you would be surprised how many people refuse to invest in bettering themselves and then wonder WHY there are no visible results. They wonder how others seem to get so far ahead and accomplish seemingly impossible feats, while they are stuck at the same level for so long.
Ben Dressen Has Studied Guitar, Taught And Performed In The US And Europe. He Is Also The Editor For Rezzonator Publishing Classical Guitar Section.
The program developed under Ben's specification is designed at the same standard that a high level, music school guitar sheet music reading course would be, but without the high fee.
You will not only learn how to read sheet music, but you will also have access to your teacher, Ben, for questions and advice.
Access to your teacher to help you get over any stumbling blocks that may come along the way. This is essential.
Notation allows you insight into the music itself, into the mind of the composer and subtleties of the composition itself. Sheet music provides a blueprint of how things work in the smallest detail. But it does more than that, it show you WHY they work the way they do.
This knowledge is invaluable for learning, performing and understanding the material on a deeper level. It is also crucial for better understanding technique and how it can be used, adapted and improved.
ALL the great things around you, from a tall skyscraper, to your computer, to your car... They all require the ability to read a blueprint from the person that creates them. Without the ability to map out a plan and comprehend what it means, you are at a loss.
Without the ability to properly and quickly read a map, your guitar playing will be spinning around in circles and you'll be wondering what the problem is.
You will be learning in an online school type environment. The lessons, material and pace will mirror real life top courses from top schools. No shortchanging here. All that you need to make progress.
Why is this important? Glad you asked. It's important because these methods are the only ones tested to give real results. Do you go to school, get a book, and then go back 4 months later for the exam? Of course not. Learning must be done in steps that are supervised by experts. This is the real way to learn.
This is the way we teach you. The only difference is that you can stop and start the courses as you wish (if for example you have to leave town for a week) and also, you save a boatload of money, as courses like these cost several hundred dollars.

I didn't know how to read music... Well, actually I did, but it was such a pain in the ass and frustrating that I might as well not have known at all how to read.
The course was incredible. The teacher, Ben, was incredible. I couldn't believe that reading music can be so easy and fun. I actually got a studio gig because of my new found ability... Wish I found out earlier about this course...

I can now read and love it. I'm not a yougster so I always thought that it was past my time to learn. Took a chance on this course and boy did it pay off...
Since learning how to read I've doubled my list of pieces I play. For some strange reason my technique and grip on the instrument became better even thought I concentrated on reading. The difference is like night and day between how I viewed and played music before, versus after this course... Absolutely incredible.

Unfortunately, without a well structured plan and an expert teacher to guide you it's nearly impossible to learn how to properly read music. To get to the level where you read fluently and move effortlessly on the guitar neck while doing it takes guidance and insight from a pro.
Otherwise it may take years, if ever, to get to a level when you can actually enjoy reading music. In most cases, without proper supervision and a well designed course, the student stumbles around in circles of frustration.
The methods taught are based on solid principles as well as tips and tricks that have been proven to get results.
