About This Class

This class is the first in the series of training about music. The course will take you from the absolute basics of music. In this first part, you will learn the basics of writing notes, the musical staff, drawing the musical clefs, naming the notes on the bass and treble staff, leger lines and the four basic note values. This series will continue to grow until we have covered everything there is to know about music. There will be assignments to complete to ensure your knowledge is comprehensive. The last few videos in each level will question your knowledge and ensure you are competent before you move on to the next section. I would strongly suggest completing these before moving on to the next series. If you have any musical question you want answered, please ask.
