About the Book

The introduction takes a closer look into the music staff. In order to understand the big picture, the student must learn what goes on between the blurry lines and in between the open spaces. There are 5 lines & 4 spaces on the music staff. Each note can be circled around the line, which is called, a line note. Each note can be circled around the space note which is called, a space note. This is because it is simply a circle with no line in between. (o) The next way is knowing the clef signs. Clef signs have 2 parts. One is for the right hand and one is for the left hand. The Treble Clef sign, also known as the G clef sign usually goes on the top line of the staff and is played with the right hand. The Bass Clef sign, also known as the F clef sign usually goes on the bottom line and is played with the left hand.

About the Author

I started taking piano lessons at the age of 6. Within the 1st two yeas I competed and won 1st place trophies and cash prizes from Armenian Allied Arts Association. I also received and completed MTAC Certificates of Merit. As well as winning silver and gold medals in the Southern California Bach Festivals.

I always new that music spoke to me differently. I went forward and decided to turn my passion into a career. I earned my Bachelors Degree in piano performance from Cal State University, Northridge in fall of 2010. After graduation, I continued to teach in different music schools in the community as well as having students in my own piano studio.
As a student, reading music notes and or theory classes were extremely difficult for me because I only grew up playing songs and not really focused on theory. As a teacher, I include music theory in all of my lessons to ensure better quality of learning. Thus, I decided to create a book that includes the basic steps into note reading. These following ways were not invented by me, it is simply what I have learned and come across in music books.

I have not yet come across a note reading music guide that only solely focuses on different ways to learn how to read the notes. I hope to inspire my readers of all ages and whoever wants to brush up on reading music notes. It is always a good idea to use these methods at the piano and away from the piano. I have also used these ways in my very own lessons. You can either use all and or one that better fits your learning process.
