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.
