Please introduce yourself and let the other learners know what kind of interest you have in musical notation. Think about the different types of relations you have to musical notation.
You may be a professional musician or a music student, a musicologist, a philologist, a person interested in the history of music or somebody who just enjoys listening to music and discovering the unknown. We would very much like to know about your thoughts on musical notation.
Please introduce yourself by leaving a comment and answer the following question:
• How do you relate to a sheet of written music?
Tell us a little bit about yourself and your experience with musical notation. Read what others have said. You may ‘like’ their comments and respond to them. You may also bookmark comments and filter them by ‘All’, ‘Following’, ‘Bookmarked’ and ‘Your comments’.
