Stave Breakthrough™ Method

Stave Breakthrough™ Method - A brief introduction.

I created Stave Breakthrough™ in 2014

Stave Breakthrough™ is a unique teaching method to make reading music easier and faster.


The Method itself needs no commercial books for support nor any special purchace whatsoever.

When using Stave Breakthrough™ music teachers start with a standard piece of music found in any music classroom or studio. It can be in any clef. Choose something suitable for your young vocalists and instrumentalists depending on their skill level.

Stave Breakthrough™ is suitable for all levels of ability not just young students. If there is a need to read music Stave Breakthrough™ is there to help.

Stave Breakthrough™ uses a Read and Say not Sing and Play method. No instrument nor singing voice is used when Stave Breakthrough™ is first introduced in a lesson. This changes when a student is comfortable using Stave Breakthrough to master reading music.

When choosing the best piece of music for your students to learn Stave Breakthrough™, use a real song not an exercise piece. Keep it short. Keep it easy. Keep it fun.

Stave Breakthrough™ covers everything found on the stave and is suitable for all styles of performance.

Standard notation, including dotted notes, ties, rests and dynamics can be read within minutes at an exciting, accelerated speed. This makes reading music and the lesson more enjoyable.


Although Stave Breakthrough™ can be used as a self-help method to learn to read music, its primary focus is to speed up the process of reading from the stave. The basic structure of reading music should have already been set in motion by a music teacher.
