Discover what all those strange symbols on sheet music mean with this hilarious video

This fascinating video by Julian Cianciolo explains how to read sheet music. It’s much more entertaining than you can ever imagine.


It is funny for a musician, who probably understands all the symbols, but has never come across with an explanation layered in-jokes. If you are a musically illiterate person, it is still pretty fun to find out what those symbols and marks in music mean. You’ll be surprised how silly some of these symbols are.

Wish I'd had this instead of "Rudiments and Theory" when I was learning!

Can read music, though a wee bit rusty now, thought this was a real hoot, just sat and listened with a grin on my face.

I'm adopted but I now know my real Mother and Grandmother were both Associates of the Royal Academy of Music so pretty near concert hall standard. I started playing the piano when I was 3 with the parents who adopted me as my adoptive father was a good player and I have played nearly my whole life. It's wonderful to be able to read even complicated pieces even if you don't have the technical skill to play the piece or read full orchestral scores.

Very, very funny (comes from someone whose mother was able to put FRVCM after her name - but never did, sadly). The College is no longer a teaching college.

The treble clef was not made correctly. It should touch the first line, not be placed above it.

Learning to read music is just like learning to read a book.Same process...one step at a time. Fun and interesting if taught in a fun manner. Usually a group lesson is better to begin with. Especially helps focus attention and trains ear.
