Musings on Learning Music



The eLessons began as emails that I wrote for the members of our Sudbury Valley New Horizons Band*.  Some are specific to what we were doing at the time, but there is still useful information that relates to other situations.  I hope you find an "Ah, ha!" as you read!  --Diane Muffitt

*SVNHB is a band created for adults who either haven't played their instruments in years (decades!) and would like to get back into playing, or who never had the opportunity to play an instrument (what are those little black marks on the paper??) and would like to.  We are affiliated with New Horizons International Music Association and now are officially called, Sudbury Valley New Horizons Music, as we have added a string program.
