Are you tired of trying to find the “letter-notes” for your favorite songs and pieces?  Maybe disappointed by the number of pieces that you can actually find, when looking for complete piano pieces that include note-name labels (including my collection on this site)? 

Hello from Kent of “Piano with Kent” (R) and “Read Piano Music Now.”

Today I’m very pleased to announce my brand new, exclusive book, How to Add Letters (Note-Names) to Sheet Music – With a Focus on Piano.

This book uses a very straightforward Three Step Process for naming any note on sheet music—no matter if the note is a sharp, flat, or natural, and no matter what the Key Signature is.  This includes up to six ledger lines, above or below the Treble or Bass staff.

This is a printable PDF download.

Here’s the product page (on this website):

 

Months in the making, this book will show you how to properly name ANY note, on either the treble or bass staff (the upper and lower staves of standard piano sheet music).

This includes any and all sharps and flats.

The big question of handling Key Signatures is thoroughly covered!

Also, you will learn how to handle “accidentals” on any sheet music. (Accidentals are sharps, flats, and natural signs that appear in front of a given note on sheet music, and they override the Key Signature.) Accidentals follow special rules of interpretation, and these too are thoroughly addressed in the book.

This 51-page book includes many examples and practice exercises. Each exercise is followed by its correct solution, with a detailed explanation of what was done.

You can use this book to interpret even the most advanced of classical pieces!

For details, please click on the product description at the top of this post.

Here are a few select images of pages, from the book itself (apologies if the image resolutions below are not great, on your screen — in the actual book, all images are very clean!).

Piano Sonata No. 14, ‘Moonlight’ (COMPLETE 1st Mvt.)

by Ludwig v. Beethoven

Companion Reference Video
 Sheet Music with Letters

 

Hello from Kent!

Today I’m happy to present an educational/reference video (at bottom) that features real-time playback of a popular piece of Sheet Music that I sell here : Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, Entire First Movement – Sheet Music with Letters & Notes together (PDF).

ABOUT THE SHEET MUSIC (LETTERS & NOTES TOGETHER)

If you click on our Moonlight Sonata product image above (this takes you to our product page, on this website), you can see all the details about this professionally engraved sheet music for piano, and also purchase it, for immediate and/or later downloads.

In a nutshell, this sheet music is the complete First Movement of Ludwig v. Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 14 (famously known as ‘Moonlight’ Sonata, taken from a poetic description of this, the First Movement, by a music critic of Beethoven’s time).

Every note on this professionally engraved and annotated sheet music is accurately labeled with its musical letter-name, such as C, G, F#, Bb.

ABOUT THE VIDEO (below):

This video can be useful as a reference when making sure you have your bearings in the sheet music.

When you scroll through it, you can tell what page and measure is being highlighted and played at any spot, by looking in the little preview square (as you move the play head around). YOU CAN ALSO SLOW THIS VIDEO DOWN, using YouTube’s playback settings for the video – just click on the gear icon in the lower right of the player window.

There is also a Keyboard Video graphic, just below the sheet music view, that highlights and sounds every note being played from the highlighted sheet music, in sync with the sheet music audio, in real time.

Please see below this video for more interesting stuff about Moonlight Sonata!
