Music reading is scary to anyone unfamiliar with the shapes and symbols. Five years ago I realized I had no idea how to begin teaching singers who had no music reading or choir experience where to begin. I became obsessed with how and where to start to teach more people how to quickly and effectively understand.
These posters are designed to show new (and experienced) musicians how to understand music notation with a simple step by step explanation. These are designed in "squares" so you can print off and make posters in your room, run off copies for your singers, combine all parts on one page or make individual ones, etc.
These posters are designed to not only look awesome but to intentionally and effectively break down the understanding of musical notation to basics that often times our teachers even didn't think about how.
Gone are the days of learning the what because someone simply told us to remember it without question. These posters are the step towards helping you understand, teach, and explain the "why" of reading music.
