Len Collins, a British Music teacher speeds up music reading by turning reading music into music thinking. Stave Breakthrough makes it possible for a music student to sit and study music away from their instrument, concentrating on the two elements of each note, its pitch and length, and replaces music reading with music thinking. Some students are said be really good sight readers, this is because they actually understand music.  They understand what it is they are looking at. This is music thinking. Len Collins created Stave Breakthrough while trying to help one of his students who about to take a music exam and was having trouble sight reading music. While his student struggled, Len tried to figure out why it was so hard for Daniel, his student and other students he has taught over the years couldn’t progress from reading music to sight reading music. Suddenly it hit him.  Too much information coming too fast off the page. By combining the length and the name of the note into a simpler form and ridding the student of having to learn outdated names for each length of time Len discovered a method to make reading music easy and sight reading within the grasp of everyone. Len Collins realised there was a different and better way to help students learn to read music. Out went the names Whole note and Semibreve Gone was the Half note and Minim. Banished forever went the Quarter note and Crotchet. Eighth note and quaver were no more. The continents were, once again united. He replaced the old names by writing and saying just the length of the note beat.  It’s that easy.  Instead of looking at a note and saying quarter note C or crotchet note C, the student says one beat C.   One beat C. By reading music this way his students learned to read music faster.  Much faster. All notes, no matter their length, are named in the same way. Short words have been proven to be behind the superior mathematics ability of Asian students, and this same principle works here. Stave Breakthrough makes it possible for students to read music away from their instruments.  In fact, Len recommends this.  Many students learn to associate the note on the page with the finger positions they use to play the note, and never learn to read music. By reading music in advance with Stave Break through, the students begin to think music, instead of just reading it.  This talent than makes it easy to learn another instrument, sing in a choir or participate in any kind of music.  Thinking music the Stave Breakthrough way.  COPYRIGHT 2015 Stave Break  through. .
