- Practicing scales is extremely important because reading sheet music is easier if the notes of the scale on which it is based are comfortably memorized. Then you don't have to concentrate on thinking, "Okay, I see that's a D, but is it sharp, flat, or natural?" Practicing arpeggios helps, too. - For any instrument that plays chords, learning about different kinds of chords and knowing what they look like on paper may be useful. For an instrument that doesn't, it may still be a good thing to do because many series of notes on paper, when played at once, form a nice-sounding chord. - Subdivide the rhythms in your head, or write out the values of the notes to see how they add up to one measure. - Find the general patterns that are repeated, see which parts of the patterns change, and concentrate on learning those changes. - Enjoy the music, see the beauty in it, feel the music, love it, and maybe it will flow more easily. That's about all of the advice I can think of right now. I hope it helps you.
practice with the individual notes. train your mind to recognize them easily, and it will be easier to read them on sheet music. I suggest flash cards or worksheets, something that will help you memorize them better.
Well I've been taking piano lessons for 8 years and what helps me read them better is just playing one not at a time like I had books that were just 1 note on each page that I played and that helped my teacher also had some techniques to help me but I can really remember so sorry if this didn't help
I played the sax for 10 years and the piano for a bit aswell. The best way is just practice. Buy different songs when you get good at one. If you don't play the piano, I'd suggest picking that up because you learn to read multiple parts at once
You can get better at reading sheet music when you listen to the music that you want to play on youtube.com. So, you learned easy music on sheet music? You should go from easy to mild, to medium, to hard, to expert, and to intermediate. I know, learning Mozart, Beethoven, or Bach sheet music is really hard, but you should listen to the music or instead just go from easy, to mild, to medium, to hard, and so on. I play the piano and I am halfway through the Sonatina in F Major by Beethoven! Hey, maybe you should try it! :) If you can't, follow little by little! Hope this helped! :)
ive been playing flute for 2 years now, and every one else in my band has been playing for 3 years, but yet im first chair out of 9. what i did for getting good at sight reading was make my own little homemade sheet music and just go through and write a chromatic scale over and over again till i know which note is which. and also look up online what something means if you dont know. (;
When I was in the 6th grade I took band. And i thought I would NEVER be able to read music and play at the same time without really having to think about it. My band teacher was a FREAK about making sure you knew the notes. He would go around the room, making each person stand up, and read notes. Very quickly I was able to look at music and my hands did what was on the paper. Just kinda practice going over the notes, and it will should come easily.
Practice. I know that this is what everyone says, But practice really does make perfect. You can only get so good with little tips and tricks. practice practice practice. Your only as good as your training. I dont know what instrument your talking about, but learn your notes, chord, etc by memory so it will be all the easier.
Practice yourself reading music without writing down the notes and if you are playing treble clef remember the spaces makes a "F.A.C.E." and the notes on the line makes "Every Good Boys Deserves Food" that's how I remember it and if you are playing bass clef that a different one
