Speedy Music Reading was founded in 2009 by David Neuenschwander. David has taught more than 3675 students how to read music using his revolutionary system. In addition, more than 32,000 subscribers tune into his weekly email newsletter every week for his helpful information for amateur musicians of all experience levels.
David’s Humble Beginnings in His Own Words:
I’m living proof that the average person can learn to read music, and that it doesn’t have to take months or years.
First of all, I’m no musical genius. I didn’t teach myself to read music or play an instrument at 4 years old and I wasn’t even a music major in college. I’m just a normal guy with a passion for music (and by the way, that’s who our programs are designed for, normal people who just want an honest, quick way to learn to read music, not some prodigy)
And, frankly, the only reason I set out to find a better, faster way to learn to read music was because of a random chance dare with a woman from Morocco.
It was a friend of mine’s mother, and we’ll just call her Veronique (because that’s her name, haha).
She mentioned in our conversation that she spoke 8 languages. And I was impressed!
She then told me that most people have such a hard time learning languages (and sight reading and everything else) because they don’t really learn how to think and apply what they’ve learned, they’re just taught to memorize it.
It hit me like a ton of bricks. That was exactly the same with music. People are taught to memorize notes and lines and spaces but are never taught to “think musically” or taught how to practice quickly and efficiently in a manner that works in harmony with how to human brain works.
So because I was sick of people like me and you being held back musically, I just couldn’t take no for an answer. If a program like this didn’t exist then I’d figure out how to create one.
And, finally, after slow and expensive learning and testing, I managed to create a way for beginners to learn the basics of reading music quickly. And now, years later, more than 2500 students across the world have used Speedy Music Reading to learn how to read music.
