Hello to everyone!
But first of all a Merry Christmas to you. I hope you enjoy the spirit of Christmas!
I bought the program not too long ago.
However I spent time, first, at training on notes recognition and reading. I was really bad with that. It is much better now, thanks to a few free programs I found on the net.
So now I will go full blast into my Songtrix Gold (for the little difference in price I thought it was worth buying the best version)
I have been practicing with the piano Suzuki method till book 5. I want to start all over again.
And Merry Christmas to you!
I've been using Songtrix for some time now, and I find it really helpful for getting my ideas worked out so they sound like I want.
Maybe I can help if you get stuck on anything with Songtrix. How do want to use it? Do you write songs?
Hi Mike !
Wow, Great ! Yes I'll let you know if I have any question.
I am still to thoroughly explore Songtrix.
I have no intention to compose so far, one thing at a time.
Lately I have been concentrating on notes recognition, with the help of a few free programs. I had to solve this problem before going any further.
From what I have seen, Songtrix can also greatly help me with notes and chords recognition, and for finding the proper chord to apply to a melody.
I will be some time before I master the program correctly.
Thank you Mike, in the meantime, for your kind offer!
Hi Michou i have been using a great note recognition teaching freeware program that has really proved helpful if only used for a few minutes everyday on a very regular basis.So far I have been using it for a number of years now and it has proved extremely beneficial to a learner of musical staff notation and speed reading improvement.Good luck and you will see yourself make steady progress,you can find it at
Hi Sunfly !
Hi Michou i have been using a great note recognition teaching freeware program that has really proved helpful if only used for a few minutes everyday on a very regular basis.
> I have done lots of research but funnily enough I have missed out on that one ! So many thanks ! Do you people on that thread want me to tell you about the other programs I have discovered ? If so let me know.
However, Sunfly gave a link to a very good program. Thank you Sunfly !
So far I have been using it for a number of years now and it has proved extremely beneficial to a learner of musical staff notation and speed reading improvement.
> Great, because, for me it was a MEGA block. MEGA ! The only way I knew of was a music book and reading and reading... This is boring and not productive at all, and an absolutely obsolete method, nowadays ! When I started the piano, the teachers were not familiar with the internet, and never made me benefit from the wonders of such programs. Too bad because I feel I could have made so much progress with that tool, and I reproach nothing to my teachers, who were very devoted.
Good luck and you will see yourself make steady progress,you can find it at
> Yes, I'll try that also.
> Right now, I am treading into the Songtrix Gold and I am afraid that if I go into a ready made song and alter it (jitters!), it will forever be corrupted in my songtrix program (unless I do a re-download-). I'll sort it out. In any case, it is all very exciting venture. I love it.
Happy New Year to you all, and my best wishes for a wonderful musical year !
God bless you all !
Just joined the network but have been familiarizing myself with how music is made by reading among others, this great resource by Chordwizad "How music works" - great staff. I have a number of compositions that I intend to publish using songtrix gold, hopefuly with the online collaboration by some of you that may be interested.
Happy new year to you all
Welcome to you Ahsante, all the best to you with Songtrix.
Happy new year also to you and all people on this forum.
