Review on this course
Having now finished with the online course regarding How to read and write music, it has not given me more knowledge about the subject at hand more than ever!
This by far is a fantastic course for those who are music fans, wanting to read or write music or just wanting something to put on their CV at the end of the day.
This course is great for ALL ages and I highly recommend this course to anyone I know so enjoy this fantastic course because who knows this course might just change your life…forever!
Excellent Good illustrations, easy to understand demonstrations
Read and write music
Music Theory Course.
This series of lessons, while not over technical, is just what is needed to have a relation between composition, reader and the sound produced. The lessons also emphasize reading though one in addition has really good “how to’s” for writing and composing and other facets of bringing sheet music to life. The course recommends, once the lessons are finished, to keep at the reading of compositions and various notation as this is a realm in itself of the musical arts. Great!
Excellent introduction into reading and writing music. Thank you David!
