I don’t know how to read music. This can appear to be a more daunting problem than it actually is. With some basic information and experience (i.e. practice), and use of the rehearsal tracks, you will soon develop enough knowledge to navigate through the musical scores provided (and even experienced choir members still have to ask question from time to time). Here are some helpful web pages and You Tube videos.

  1. Music theory lessons – This website has a number of lessons and activities that cover the basics. Included in these is one explaining the differences in British and American terminology (e.g. crotchet = quarter note, which is useful as some resources use American terminology while we use British terminology).
  2. How to Read Music (for singers!) – This is a short (just over 6 minutes) You Tube video. It is entertaining and informative (though it uses American terminology and only covers the Treble Clef).
  3. How to Read Music In 15 Minutes – This a slightly longer and more comprehensive introduction (including covering the Bass Clef). He is dealing with piano music but almost all of it is relevant for singers.
