No-C-Notes: Alternative Method of Reading Music

No-C-Notes Bridges the gap between Visually Impaired Musicians and Printed Music Notation. No-C-Notes is an easy and cost effective way of using sheet music notation. Used by the singer, songwriter, teacher or instrumentalist who wants their sheet music spoken, not written. There is no need to learn clefs, staffs, ledger lines, note heads and flags and other visual sheet music notation as this method reads the actual tone and timing without having to know its placement on paper. Whether used for voice, keyboards, guitar, strings or woodwinds, it gives musicians a common verbal language of reading their sheet music to one another.
No-C-Notes audio music description can replace printed, Braille or Big-Note sheet music. Musicians listen to their sheet music being read verbally in the same manner as you would use an audio book. Readings can be saved any audio method such as MP3, CD or audio cassette.
Currently available is lead sheet music in audio MP3 format, along with a how-to CD included audio descriptions of 166 chords. Other services include transcribing music score and instruction books into an audio book complete with midi recording of music along with reading of all tones, timing, phrases, chords and lyrics along with any fingerings, accidentals and text. Seminars available across the U.S. for music teachers and educational institutions. Contact Christina and check out the website for offerings.
