Now, I know what some (not all) of you are probably thinking, "You mean you cant read music? Thats crazy!" But, allow me to explain myself!
I can read music, and I can recognize rhythms as well. But, I have a hard time actually playing it without hearing what it actually sounds like when played correctly. When I first see a very complex note pattern, all I really see is a bunch of gibberish but, after hearing the music, I can read it without any problems at all. Is this normal or am I just weird?! I would love to improve on this because this has been the downfall on many auditions when they ask me to sight read. Has anyone else experienced this and if so, how did you improve it?
