Learning to read and understand music, like any language, requires regular and consistent practice. Expect to spend an average of 7-10 hours per week working on the course; this is the equivalent to spending 3 hours in the classroom (reading the course "lectures" in the Learning Modules) plus 4-7 hours per week completing the homework assignments.

If you work with the material on a daily basis you are more likely to gain a better understanding and retain what you learn than if you wait until Sunday afternoon every week. It is very important that you complete all the assignments on a timely basis as you are continually building upon your understanding from a foundation of previously learned concepts and skills. If you fall too far behind it is very difficult to catch up.

You are required to log into the class at least 2 times a week. The class week begins on Monday and runs through Sunday.
