Music Reading Helper

Music reading is an important part of learning the piano. One of the key concepts of music reading is that there is a spatial correspondence between the way musical notes (A, B, C,…) moves on the written score and the way a pianist should move his or her hands. When the musical notes moves up, the hands move to the right of the piano. When the notes move down, the hands move to the left of the piano. How much the hands should move is determined by how much the musical notes move up or down. The staff (the five long lines on which notes are placed) is a visual aid to tell the pianist exactly how much to move the hands. I devised a simple tool called the music reading helper to show my students this important concept in music reading.
