Do you want to learn to read those dots and squiggles? It's easier than you think, and I'll take you through it with this series of videos designed to get you reading and playing fast!
I've been doing this for over 25 years and have helped students of all ages. Lessons are from my bestselling book Basic Muic Theory: How to Read, Write, and Understand Written Music.
These videos go way beyond what's covered in the book: you'll get visual and audio examples, as well as quizzes and online material to help hone your new skills.
Or, if you want to learn more, keep reading.

Multi-instrumentalist, and author of eight music-related books, I've got over 35 years of playing and 25 years of teaching experience, including a Ph. D. in music education from Northwestern University, one of the premier schools of music, worldwide. I play trumpet, guitar, and percussion, as well as a bunch of other instruments I enjoy the heck out of but which I'd never play in public.
I write and teach and give talks and workshops on various music-related topics. My books can be found in English, Spanish, Italian, and Chinese, with more translations on the way.
"Really appreciate your style...thanks for making these videos...family thrilled!"
