NEW to singing in a choir and/or reading music?

Here is a YouTube video introduction to understanding the basics of reading notes and rhythm which you may find helpful. Created by Tim Hansen, I think it's a great explanation for a beginner about the nuts and bolts of music. Enjoy!

Everything you wanted to know about music theory - ONLINE and FREE at sonicfit.com

Visit this link for lessons on note-reading, theory of music, complete with exercises to help you improve your skills.


Try to work through these lessons and exercises a little each week and it will make a big difference to your choir experience!

Remember, becoming a good sight reader of music requires a little practice every day!
