Music reading on the ukulele is the most important thing you can do as a uke player. Not being able to read music is the single biggest factor that will hold your playing back. You know deep down that you need to read music, yet most you don’t do it. I know what you are thinking. I want to learn ukulele to strum some chords and play my favorite song. What if I told you that if you could read music, that you would play chords and strum your favorite songs better than you ever have before?I can already hear the doubts creeping into your mind, yet what I’m telling you is 100% true and I believe this to my core.Choose any instrument you want: flute, violin, saxophone, clarinet, voice, trumpet, etc. Can you tell me the first thing each one of these instruments learns how to do? You guessed it. They learn how to read music. The first thing a band teacher does with every beginning student is put a piece of sheet music in front of them and they start reading.If you ever took a class with me or study with me privately you would read music, weather you were totally new to it or if you been reading for a while. It is something that I have always stressed with all my students. Thus, my students have seen more progress in their playing in a shorter amount of time.Maybe you learned how to do some basic music reading in the past, but the reality is that the music reading muscle gets weaker unless you use it, so start using it. How freeing would it be if you could pick up any music notation book and read the music? I’m not talking about looking at the chords and strumming along. Anyone with a little talent and effort can do that, but we don’t want to just be anybody. We want to be extraordinary.I’m talking about looking at and playing that melody. I’m talking about sight reading it one time and playing each note, rhythm, dynamic, articulation, and tempo perfectly. I’m talking about making music. Free yourself from needing TAB to read or having to spend hours looking at a piece of music and trying to figure out where to play each note.It’s an amazing feeling knowing that I can take any piece of music, whether it’s a vocal melody, a flute song, or even a piano arrangement and play it like the composer meant it to be played.
