Unusual Music Notation

In this resource, I take you on a walk through my world as a pianist and choral director and the different types of music notation (outside of experimental) that I experience.

Particularly outside the USA, a piece of music might have both sharps and flats in the key signature or contain unfamiliar symbols, but I must adapt on the spot. (Ah…my brain is fried!)

Examples in cultural context include –

  • Three Staves             
  • Hm/Solfege Symbols             
  • Key Signatures                     
  • Indonesian        
  • Shape-Note                        
  • Chant                        
  • Tablature          
  • Figured Bass
