    In this class you will learn how to read music for those interested in participating in musicals or singing anywhere. This will kick your audition up a notch as you will be better able to read music presented to you on the spot. It will also lead to a much easier task of learning your parts in a show, so that the harmonies comes quicker!

    We will cover everything from basic music theory to how to find your notes on the piano. Knowing how to read music is very important if you want to be in a musical or a choir. It is also important for anyone interested in music. This is for all levels of readers. Some of this will be a review for some and brand new for others!
