    "Long story short, I have always had a good ear for music, I know what sounds good together, but it can only get you so far, you know? If you know nothing about music, like me , this is the place to start. The courses takes you step by step through the different stages of making music. The whole exercise is interactive, which is great since you are learning by doing. Once you finish with the course, you can go on to advanced topics like major and minor scales, triads, and so on. 10/10 would recommend."

    "We all love to sing and each of us thinks we are as good if not better than any musician that ever lived. That trait is universal regardless of the neighbor's complaints. This is a wonderful way to enhance your own ability to understand and appreciate any type or genre of music. By learning to read sheet music you find out about all of the minor chords and instrumental influences that we barely pay heed to. In addition it helps greatly with one's playing of any musical instrument and actually can lead you to become more attentive progress faster. "
