Hello, I’m Julian Wright and I’ve been playing guitar for nearly sixty years – in many styles including classical.
The advent of app technology made it possible for me to realise a long-held dream – iReadGuitar. At last modern hi-tech has enabled an ancient but often exclusive skill – that of playing from standard music. Now any guitarist can learn to do it, whether classically-trained or not. I hope other players will find this as liberating, exciting and empowering as I do.
With help from coding mentor and friend David Chan I’m currently developing a similar Music Reading Trainer for primary schools – for recorders/ocarinas and voice. It’s just coming to the testing stage. It will come with full lesson plans so non musically-trained teachers will be happy using it. Still a lot of work to do but very promising.
