Introduction to the Course
This is a brief overview of what to expect on the musical stave at the start of a piece of music. Each aspect will be explored in more depth in subsequent lectures.
Clefs, Notes, and Scales
Understand clefs, note pitches, and simple major and minor scales. Have a good understanding of different note pitches, and be able to identify notes on the stave accurately according to the clef.
In this Lecture, you will be introduced to the concept of the four clefs in music, and why different clefs are used for different instruments or at certain points in a piece of music.With the knowledge of clefs, you will be able to identify the pitches of notes on the stave.
A Question of Clefs
A series of questions to help you understand the stave and why we use clefs.
Notes of the Stave
This lecture will cover the pitches of notes of the stave, and what each line and space represent. This, of course, will differ slightly depending on what clef the music is being read in, but we’ll cover each as we go along. It will teach you useful mnemonics and memorable words to serve as anchors whilst you are learning, and the faster you get, the less you’ll rely on them.Eventually, you’ll just be reading the music, as instinctively as you read words!
This lecture will provide you with a little background on major and minor scales before we progress on to key signatures. We’ll focus on diatonic scales for the purpose of this course, which are common scales that include tones and semitones. This lecture includes some useful patterns which, once learned, will help you to play any major or minor scale.
Key Signatures and Accidentals
In this lecture we’ll be looking closely at key signatures, which are found directly after the clef, but before the time signature. Key signatures use sharp signs and flat signs to direct the musician as to what notes in the piece of music are sharpened or flattened, and therefor what key the piece is in, or rather what scale the piece is centred around. The lecture includes some useful "tricks" to help you to state the order of sharps and flats, and to easily identify the key of a piece of music from the key signature
  • No, just an enthusiasm to learn a great new skill.

Teacher, composer, and performer

Hi all! So here's a bit of background I have been a musician for over 25 years, writing and arranging music for a variety of solo instruments and ensembles. Most recently I have achieved Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) after studying at Post Graduate level.

During my professional musical career I performed on the Double Bass, Guitar, and Tuba for eight years as a musician in the Royal Marines Band, performing alongside celebrities at great venues such as the Royal Albert Hall and at events including the Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

During this time I have also been an instrument tutor, and provided music theory lessons. I have a publishing company, Penny Music Co. through which I release my arrangements, and even a record label (McStrange Records) under which I release my recordings. Both of these are tons of fun by the way

So that is the long and short of the circumstances which gave way to my musical life I really hope you enjoy the course!
