October 12, 2009 -- From Gerrit, a reader, from Eefde, Netherlands, who is affiliated with the site.
Www.how2readmusic.com, eyes and ears for music, is a new website for learning to read music through the use of fun games, theory chapters and self-tests. Music students or anyone interested in learning to read music can use the games in How2readmusic to train their ears and mind through melodic and rhythmic dictation, and exercises in reading and writing music notation.
Rhythmic and Melodic dictation games allow students to become familiar with music notation, while the very user-friendly composing program gives students a chance to try their hand at composing!
The chapters on Music Theory cover all the basic information that a student can learn without the trained ear of a teacher present. Music Teachers can use How2readmusic.com as a resource that their students can use to practice elements of theory outside of precious lesson time.
The program even comes with a monitoring and guidance system that teachers can use to give assignments and follow their students’ progress from week to week! Most importantly, the students can have fun while playfully learning the fundamentals of music!
