So you don’t read music. It’s not as complicated as it sounds, really. In JOV, BJ has made learning the notes, or
“pitches”, easy with recorded music tracks. What does need to be learned is the terminology that BJ uses, and the
counting. Counting is pretty critical, and it can be challenging, but with some practice, it can be learned. Nothing makes
a choir sound better than everyone singing exactly the same (correct!) rhythm, and having the same entries and cut-offs.
So we’re going to have some very short lessons (that won’t be onerous to read) to see if we can’t get non-readers
feeling a bit more comfortable with the score that sits in front of them.
Let’s get started!
