I thought I'd just mention this - I'm a struggling sheet-reader - and I find this approach quite helpful.

Get yourself a music editor (MuseScore is free).

Enter the part.    (Messy for the first few attempts, but you'll get used to it).

Reduce the window size to show only one stave - and indeed if it is a new-to-you piece you are working on, drop the tempo and play along to the synthesized sound....

People are of course different, and come to music from completely different paths - I have had no real "formal" training or background, just a desire to learn - and I find the approach quite useful - here's La Cucaracha.   ( Not that I needed it for that piece actually, I just put it together to demonstrate the concept )

EDIT : @Fiddlerman - what's actually driven me to suggest this is it is something we could possibly do to make it easier for beginner players in the group projects - I mean individual players wouldn't actually need to have MuseScore, or score it all up again (which would inevitably lead to human errors anyway) - animated videos of all separate parts could be created as part of the overall project....   and indeed they become a set of "backing" tracks with not only the visual scored notation being followed, but also an accompanying audio 'play-along'.... just a thought

This is cool by me Bill. I'll send you the latest score for you to make those parts. I'm still going to make my own click tracks but players can use whichever they choose. 🙂

Yup, no problem @Fiddlerman.  Happy to do that - send 'em!

Oh and of course - you have to keep the click tracks - this was indeed just an additional way of possibly making it easier for some folks who can sometimes find it difficult to disambiguate "what's going on in the click track and read-sheet at the same time" - especially if not used to it.   thumbs-up

Exactly. I'll keep everything the way I've been doing it and you'll help with additional great ways for participants to accomplish the goal. I only see it as a benefit. Thank you for all your great ideas and your well needed help. 🙂

I think you may be on to something good here Bill.

I used to use Finale, but I find Musescore much more user-friendly for basic editing (and it's free!), I've been using it for all my concoctions, but never thought to use your idea and break the score into small pieces.

I love the word 'disambiguate' ... might add that to my vocabulary, if just to impress people!

In your example, the music keeps flowing .. is there a way to just accent one line and put it on a loop for practice purposes ... you know, those pesky tricky bits ... ?

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

Hi @Robyn.fnq.  sorry, away from home ATM on mobile, hard til type...  To answer your question, no.... On pre-made vids like the sample above, no, but within musescroe itself, yes, of course it's possible...   And more to the point we can now share MS files here on the forum.  When I get back home I'll be better. Placed to assist you...  Yup ms is awesome..
