When you say you can barely read music, does this mean you don't know how to interpret certain aspects of notation, or you understand all of it but it comes very slowly when you try to read something?
what I meant was, I can't understand some notes in the piano sheet. and I am slow in reading notes but when I listen to the song I can get the chords when I get the chords I will know Instinctively where to press in the rhythm. or if I know how to play the rhythm I can also Instinctively know what chord to press. but when it come to sheets its hard for me.
I must say, I'm quite envious that you are able to pick things up by ear. It's not unheard of naturally, but it is an unusual gift and shows an innate musical talent that you are clearly nurturing.
Reading sheet music is a talent that I'm pretty sure nobody has innately, it just requires doing it, building your skills little by little, day in and day out. Stick with it, and your hard work combined with your God-given talent will help you to blossom. You will find those classical works -- and anything else you can get your hands on for sheet music -- to be quite accessible to you, in time. I'm quite sure of this.
I would recommend checking out www.sightreadingpractice.com
for developing the ability to read individual notes in any key and transfer them to the keyboard. I'm still much slower than I would like to be, but this has helped quite a bit.
Also, Bobpickle's Music Theory thread here
is an incredible resource. Start at the top and work your way down.
You seem to have a great proficiency with chords. When you've gotten through section #4, you can jump into how those chords are represented in sheet music, I just found today (thanks to Bob!) this little exercise page
that I'm guessing you will find helpful as well.
Choose the "Chord Identification" option and you'll be on your way to making the connection between what you hear and play with what you would see on the sheet. You will start to see patterns very quickly. I'm just beginning at this myself, but the advice I've seen and am starting to take advantage of is that the key to success is to not try to read individual notes, but rather to focus on the patterns, i.e. the "shape" of the chords -- both on the page and with your hands. It looks like you are well on your way with the hands part already.
Would you consider posting this to the recital? You would get lots of positive feedback, and some constructive criticism as well that would help answer yourquestion re: progressing.
do you mean posting my cover here in the forum? is that correct?
Yes, in the quarterly recital (#28), posting info is here
. It's wide open, any type of song, piece, improv, whatever, as long as it is piano. If you search on previous recitals you can get a feel for the range of styles, including all different levels of skill. Don't let the word "recital" intimidate you though, it's very much a "here's how I'm doing now" opportunity to share with others and get some helpful feedback and encouragement.
As of this moment, you have 48 hours and 45 minutes until the deadline!
P.S. Don't worry about your English, it's just fine, we're all learning something or another, so no worries.
