About 2300 pages. You’ll get the first paragraph for FREE. If you like it you can by the full ersion whenever you like by upgrading your upgrade in MySDL.
How should I study from Level 1 Trial Version?
The basic idea is to work out the different time feels from G1-G9 a.s.a.p. But there is no one way, only your way. However, we encourage you to view Level 1 as a 3D method as much as possible.
1. Left to Right (Chapters/Time feels)
2. Top to bottom (Paragraphs/Subjects)
3. Front to back (Parts/Grooves, Fills, Tips etc.)
Do I need to be able to read music?
No, you’ll learn this as you go. Theory is not our main focus. And we think it should never be. It’s a good idea to learn it but always remember that there was music first, music notation second. Not the other way around.
I feel overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of Level 1. What should I do?
