Notation Musician can help you learn to ready music notation more easily and quickly. Use Musician as an accompanist for vocal or solo instrument practice, and for listening to learn.
- Find and download the MIDI file for a song you know using Musician's internal browser, or use your favorite browser and search engine (just use the song name and "MIDI" in the search box.).
- Musician immediately converts it to sheet music, displayed on the screen.
- Use Musician's Part drop-list on the menu bar to show only the voice or instrument part you want to learn.
- Let Musician highlight notes and lyrics as it plays back the song. A vertical cursor moves across the score on beat, to help you keep time.
- Have Musician slow down the tempo, even as slowly as one tenth of the normal playback speed, so you can more easily see the notes and understand the rhythms.
- You will soon start to associate the notation you see with the notes you hear.
- Using Musician as a tool to learn music notation is particularly effective if you are also studying music with a teacher or friend.
- You can also print out the sheet music, with Musician's smart formatting giving you quality sheet music.
