Making music and notes are more alike than you think

The latest version of Notetalker welcomes an improved solution for students to take productive notes. We believe that learning the fundamentals of how to take effective notes is an important skill to master. We’re working on developing a set of resources to help students master the art of note taking.

In the meantime, we’ve created this brilliant introduction into the importance of learning how to take effective notes. Troy Miller, composer, producer and musician who has worked with the likes of Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, and most recently Laura Mvula on her award-winning album ‘The Dreaming Room’ has produced this musically-rooted explanation about the similarities between creating and making music, and making notes.

Troy explains that making effective notes, like making music, should have a purpose and an order. And learning the basics of good note taking is essential groundwork to put into practice. It’s utterly fascinating!

Listen to Troy explain the likeness between making music and making notes.
