Welcome to Noob Notes! My little collection of songs written out in simple letter notes 🙂
Tried and tested on the flute / piccolo (plus a piano app, that counts!) – these music notes are also transferable to other instruments such as piano or saxophone, recorder, piano, oboe, clarinet, trumpet, guitar, bells and many others 🙂
These songs are all my interpretations, played by ear and noted down in letters. I created this site to share my notes with others for fun, free, easy practice.
All the songs are presented in written letter note format (rather than sheet music) to make it easier for beginners and novices (like me) to read! I aspire to note down tunes that everyone can appreciate regardless of skill level or instrument.
ps. stay in touch! I post new songs every week, and do my best to update the usual socials – there’s always the weekly newsletter too, you can sign up at the bottom of any page 🙂
Hi, I’m nat, and I’m bad at reading sheet music…
I can read it, just really, really slowly! So on the occasion when I do pick up the flute, it’s playing the instrument I want to practice, not reading the notes to play.
Since school, playing an instrument has stuck with me. I used to find it really relaxing, and enjoyed the challenge of trying to work out the notes to songs I like. So one day, on a whim, I bought a flute – it’d been a decade, but these things are like riding a bike, right?!
So in my late 20’s, I jumped in with all the skill of a rusty 15 year old – and was hooked instantly! As you can imagine, my boyfriend really enjoyed hearing the Titanic theme tune and Hark the Herald Angels sing on loop for a while 😛
Then, one day in early 2015, I had the insane/genius idea to mix work with pleasure – during the day I make websites, so I thought I could document and share the songs I like to play with others. Turns out I can play a lot more than I realised, and a few years later the result is my own personal music book that I click ‘random‘ on for hours, and others get to benefit from too… woop!
I really hope you enjoy playing these songs as much as I do 🙂
