6 Best Ways to Read Music Notes for Beginners

In order to learn how to read the written form of music, first of all you will need to learn how to read the symbols that depict these notations and this can be achieved after a fantastic research on these symbols as well as notations. The more you research about these things, the better you will be able to learn and understand them.

3. Try Out Playing Instruments On The Base of notations:-

Talking about the song soldier soldier from film “Badal” which is an Indian movie, this one can be played on Piano by pressing the 2nd key, then fourth key, then third key and then first key and then repeating the pattern again. Like 2-4-3-1, 2-2-4-4-3-3-1 and so on… I have got these keys crammed in my case, but this can’t be possible for you to cram numberings for every song and thus you need to learn playing the instruments based on the notations and signs, the more you will practice, the more will you learn about playing music.

4. Research About The Notations:-

Talking about the music notations and symbols, you can research about them over internet or you may simply purchase the notation based book or you may even manage to take some music based notes from some music player as well. The more you make research about these notations, the better you will be able to find them and the more you will be able to practice them.

5. Get In Touch With Some Music Guru:-

If still after finding the notations, you are finding it difficult for yourself to learn these notations and symbols, you may choose to go for hiring some music teacher in your knowledge so as to teach you how to make notations and use them for playing music.

6. Make Up Your Own Notes:-

After you get trained enough to play notes written by others and play your own created music, you may choose to make notations for them by yourself as well. This will make you preserve your music works for future purposes.
