Here’s a mystery tune to help you learn to read sheet music.  It’s a familiar melody that you will figure out as you work through the snippets. The magical part is when you realize what tune it is and say “A-ha!”

Try to read each little part using the A part of the exercises below. Then use the B part to listen and see if you read it correctly.

After you’ve worked through the whole tune, you’ll see a tab for the full sheet music. See if you can read the whole tune.

After that, you’ll see a tab for the full tune audio. I suggest you wait on listening to that until you’ve done your best to figure what the mystery tune is with the snippets.

In this lesson, you will be doing something I call Intuitive Note Reading. even without knowing explicit rules, your brain will figure out how to read if it can correlate sheet music snippets with audio chunks.

Mystery tunes are a new thing I’m trying out as a fun way for you to learn note-reading. Please let me know in a comment if it’s helpful or if I could improve on this idea somehow.

Thanks for being a good student. It makes my job fun…
