Music Reading (Part 1)

Featuring Branon Dempsey Posted on May 15, 2008

Whether you are a pianist, guitarist, singer or other instrument player, this easy lesson in music reading maybe for you! Often, at my workshops or through emails, I get many questions about learning to read music. At first, it can seem intimidating and may leave feelings of doubt. Well let say, you have a safe place here! There are countless individuals in worship teams that are always looking to refine their skills and understanding in music reading. Plus, music reading is fun!

Reading music is like riding a bike; once you get rolling, you get better each time you pedal. These charts below may help you become more familiar with learning how to read music. I hope you find the diagrams easy to understand as they will help you identify staff and music icons. In addition, you will be able to learn the notes both on a music staff as they correspond with the notes on the keyboard. Enjoy the easy and fun music lesson!
