Education for beginners
I would like to suggest a learning tool, if it does not already exist. I have watched some of the VIDEOS but find sometimes Geoge's voice tapers of and I can't hear him. Sometimes you can't see all of his screen and his cursor is too small and quick to follow. I do see that his verbal has been translated to immediate text which is a big plus.
What I am trying to do as a learning exercise is to take an existing piece of a favorite song and try to enter it onto a blank score. That way after 2-3 lines most notes, rests, symbols, ties, dynamics, repeats, etc. would all be covered and I could see at least ONE way to do each of those things. You also have a correct version for comparison. I managed to connect my MIDI keyboard and can enter some notes which is my ultimate goal but again I found George's MIDI lesson too quick to follow. He makes heavy use of shortcuts which is not much help for a novice.
It would be great if somebody could or already has done this. I am using "The Rose" (Amanda McBroom) made famous by Bette Midler.
If this exists please let me know.
