Learning Music


The most important things for learning music are a metronome, a tuner, and books. A person should learn ear training, voice training and voice technique, sight singing, music theory basics, and song writing. It is important to learn and study the guitar, the bass guitar, and drums. Drum rudiments are very important and should be learned to be applied to any instrument. Bass grooves and drum grooves are a very important part of music to learn about.


It is important to learn the caged system to master fretboards, as well as the bird cage system to master your voice. The caged system is like a visualized capo on a fretboard that teaches a person where any chord or arpeggio is on any fretboard.


Vibrato is very important to master your voice and is really like mastering the rudiments for your voice and can be applied to any instrument.


Musicianship is a very important aspect of music. It teaches a person how musicians can be more professional.


It is important to learn scales, modes, and chromatic modes. As well as, arpeggios, chords, and inversions of those arpeggios and chords. Additionally, it is important to learn all fifteen keys.


It is very important to learn absolute pitch and relative pitch with ear training.


These are important ideas to help a person to learn about and master music.


Metronome Practice


I recommend metronome practice. You can count with your thinking or count with your voice out loud. You can count the clicks. You can count the flashes of light on the metronome. You can count the clicks and the flashes of light on the metronome. Set the metronome to sixty beats per minute and count the clicks. Count the clicks in sequence like the rudiments one through seventeen. Count like this. Count each click.

Absolute Pitch Colors


Here are my opinions of what the absolute pitch colors are. C is like home base and glows. C sharp or D flat is like a candle flame. D is like pitch black. D sharp or E flat is like blue or water. E is like white. F is like pink. F sharp or G flat is like red. G is like the sunrise. G sharp or A flat is like green or brown or like a tree. A is like yellow. A sharp or B flat is like the stars in the night sky. B is like the moon in the night sky. These are my opinions of what the absolute pitch colors are.
