Creating a lead sheet and chord chart – Exercise 1

Students will gain an understanding of the purpose of a lead sheet and chord charts for use in contemporary music by completing exercises in Noteflight.

This activity is an excellent opportunity for students with little academic training, but good ears (ex. a guitarist who learns pop songs by ear) to work with students that have had good academic training on their instrument, including reading music, but little opportunity to learn contemporary styles and are not accustomed to learning by ear (ex. band and string students)
