"Weidt tutors are fine by me. I'm no great fan of Facebook so if we can work something out that will work ON CBN then great. Maybe Ian can advise how best to do this. "

Hi Cynthia

I saw your various posts about learning to read music etc & your suggestion of setting up a study group. I would be interested in being part of that.

If you are on Facebook, take a look at the the Solo Ukulele group

https://www.facebook.com/groups/955181251304062/

This has been set up for people working through a free ukulele course. it's about playing rather than music reading but has the elements you mentioned.

Regards

Eric

I'll take a look at the ukulele group. A Facebook group would actually be a nice way to converse with people who were working through the tutor book, but someone mentioned that an open thread might be a nice lasting contribution to this site, too. Always decisions to make!

Hi Cynthia

I am happy to get involved & help out on administration etc. Joel Hooks has also expressed an interest in providing support.

I'm not sure how it works but maybe we could set up a blog here on CBN. Which of the tutors do you think might serve as the core text?

Regards

Eric

We were talking about a particular Weidt tutor. That is what I expressed interest in because his music is....well.. musical.  The idea of a study grew out of a discussion about this particular book.   However I am not interested in a Facebook project.

Eric, would you mind checking with Ian on how we can best fit an on-going study group conversation into this site? I'm not familiar enough with the various options for posting to know what might work best.
