Figurenotes is a simple system designed to demystify the first steps in learning to read music. Each musical note has a corresponding coloured symbol. With the help of stickers on the instrument or finger patterns, learners play what they see. Rhythm is clear and literal, making music less abstract and more accessible.

Progress to standard notation through 3 simple steps, constantly developing as a musician.

This Finnish education tool is adaptable and progressive, working brilliantly for learners with additional support needs, as well as mainstream beginners.

What is Figurenotes?
