I have a 8 year old daughter who plays the flute beautifully, her only problem is she can't read the music. Has any one got any tips on how I can teach her. I have tried several methods (flip cards, face and egbdf,Etc) but to no avail. If you can help please post a message for me Thanks.

Hi..these methods should work.....consider getting a large poster, and draw five lines....every day....place one coin on a note....each day will be the day of that note..in a sense.....ask her to step on the lines one week...and be a "human note" there are also several work books...some by Alfred Music...good luck....hope this helps, Adam Crane www.craneclassical.com

And if you've got a little extra money, private lessons can do wonders. Also, see if her school has a band. If not, chances are there will be one in middle and/or high school, but that's a little ways off.
