“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.” – Albert Einstein
How do you see your life in terms of music? Do you want to grab the bull by the horns and become a true player or do you just want to poke around? It doesn’t matter what level of seriousness you want to apply and it doesn’t matter how famous you become. What matters is how you understand music so that all of it is available to you in case you want to take it farther than you ever thought. In case you wind up more excited and engaged, having a solid foundation is what is going to give you a platform to build on. Luckily, that foundation is easy to understand and easy to put to use! And it doesn’t involve sheet music a.k.a. notation.
Sheet music is a way to record and phonetically repeat music but it has no information as to what, why and how the language of music really is. That context is extremely important if, like many people, you don’t care to use sheet music to play. And if you do choose to learn to read notation, you’ll do it with a greater context to everything you do, transforming you from being merely a record needle for the script.
The Key of One will give you the basic information that music is built on and get you playing. It’s one thing to reproduce a song off a page but quite another level to understand why that song works the way it does, why its chords build the way they do, why they sound the way they do and how to hear them through the production and chord augmentations. Plus, when you’re aware of what to listen for, every song you hear gives up its secrets, its structure, its riffs and its melodies.
Isn’t it time you understood music as a language so you can play what you want and achieve all of your musical dreams? It still takes dedication, time and hard work but with The Key of One, everything is possible! Find out about lessons and more HERE.
