    Child-Like Explanations are Delightful

    I have just started the course. I already play the piano, but want to get better. By the second course he explained how a D hanging below the Treble Cleff stands for DOG that got under the fence. Or that the A C E line notes on Treble and Bass are really A C E fighter pilots. I wish someone told be this when I first learned to read music!!!

  • Raymond Rudolph
    Course disappeared ??

    I was taking the Free Music Course. I was up to lesson 13. I did not try to resume the course for a week. Now I cannot get started again. What should I do ?

  • Willa Roos
    Great course!

    The teacher is great, he makes it very easy to understand . Great for experienced people who want a refresher or for newbies. I'm only subtracting one star for poor video quality, it's hard to see what's written on the board sometimes. Thanks Andrew! Father Charles goes down and ends battle!!!

    Quality of broadcasting

    The sound quality coming form the you tube and the visual clearness is very poor. I am very much keen to learn these lessons, but with the poor quality of broadcasting I may have to abndon the series of these lectures and try another course
