Music Reading

Guitar Mixed Meter

Much of the music written before 1900 is in fixed meter, that is one meter (or time signature) per piece.  When the meter changes, frequently or infrequently, from one time signature to another within the same piece, it is called mixed meter.  

Pattern Recognition in Music

When learning a new piece, it’s important to first scan the music to get an overall feel for its structure,  a process called pre-reading.  Look for elements like key signature, challenging rhythms and pitches, and musical patterns.
