    Guide for Piano Notation?

    I am terrible at Piano notation. Can anyone recommend a good book or online source that could help me?

    Thanks,
    John

    Music Notation: A Manual of Modern Practice by Gardner Read is my primary reference. If you can't locate it, I can look up a source, hiding somewhere on this computer.

    John:

    The Gardner Read notation book is a JEWEL. You will never need anything else unless you go into writing in the modern idiom, then I would recommend "Music Notation in the Twentieth Century" by Kurt Stone.

    With these two books, you are set for the rest of your life. Believe me, it's true.

    Thanks,

    I think that the Gardner book is what I had in school (a long time ago!)
