How to Learn Music Notes in 5 Minutes or Less a Day

learn music notesIf I were to point to a music note on the staff, would you be able to tell me what it is?  Why not?

Playing music without taking the time to learn music notes will get you about half-way there.

It’s like trying to make chocolate milk without Hershey’s syrup.  You’re missing a very important ingredient.

Just picture yourself being able to read music notes easily.  You would be able to play any piece of music you want without anything holding you back.  Isn’t that what you really want?

Dedicate Yourself to 5 Minutes or Less a Day

Since you’re still reading this, I’m guessing that you do really want to learn how to read music notes.

Well, that is great because it doesn’t take very long to learn.  The key is that you have to really want to learn and that you are willing to practice it regularly.

So, how do we do this?

Music Flashcards

Get yourself a set of music flashcards like these printable music flash cards, and practice them for a few minutes every day.

1. Start by using only 3-5 flash cards.

2. Once those are mastered, add 1 or 2 more.

3. Keep adding more flash cards gradually until they are all mastered.

Take it to the Next Level

Here’s how you can kick it up a notch:

1. Time yourself keeping track of your best times each day.

2. See how many rounds you can go getting all the flash cards correct.

Make Repetition Your Friend

Spend 5 minutes or less every day reviewing your flash cards.  If you are really focused during this time, you should be able to learn all of the music notes very quickly.

The more repetition you do, the deeper it will stick into your memory making it easier to recall later.

So, What Do You Think?

Are you ready to learn?  If not, what’s holding you back?
