How to read something like this sheet?
- ?Lv 78 years agoFavorite Answer
Obviously one of the most complete examples in five measures of how much can be packed into sheet music.
A vocal line, an accompaniment on the grand staff.
An anacrusis measure
A 'difficult' key signature and a modulation
Crecendo and decrescnedo hairpins
Multiple voices one one staff
Arpeggiated (rolled) chords
... Puccini seems to have missed out on C clefs, cross-staff beaming, mordents, trills, turns, glissandi and a few other novelties in this one though.
(Anyone have the TAB for this?) :-)

This will give you the basics of reading music:
All the notes that are in a line vertically are played at the same time.

This is way to difficult for someone who's never read sheet music before to start with. Look up how to read sheet music before wasting your time trying.
