Teach Better Note Reading: The speed note ninja system is a tool for music educators to use to help their students learn the fundamentals of note recognition through drill and practice. Teachers that use daily reinforcement and isolation of skill sets have for greater success than teacher that rely solely on the method books to teach from.
Teaching Note Recognition: Let’s face it, learning to play an instrument is demanding and difficult. Our students often walk in to our rooms with little to no prerequisite knowledge of music reading, let alone how to play an instrument. For most directors, we have to start from zero. For the best results, band directors have to teach skill sets in isolation (i.e. breathing, embouchure, rhythm, etc). Teaching note identification is no different, but requires careful attention and planning. Our students need to be proficient in note recognition in order to become truly self-sufficient musicians, just the same as they need to be proficient in rhythm recognition and tone production. To break it down into its simplest form, being proficient in note recognition means that students can instantaneously see a note on the music staff and recall the pitch name and corresponding fingering/slide position for that note.
When trying to teach note recognition, you will have much greater success once you separate out note recognition from the others instrumental skill sets. The Speed Note Ninja System is a simple yet effective tool for dramatically improving your students speed and accuracy when it comes to note recognition. When used on a regular basis, the speed note system will improve your students reading skills and they will feel more confident in their musical abilities.
