Read The Dots

Finally, a Simple System to Help You Read Music Without Frustrating, Dull and Lengthy Lessons

Have You EVER Thought or Said…

  • “I’ve always wanted to read music, but it’s too hard”
  • “I love singing but I can’t follow the music we’re given”
  • “I play in a band but the others use terms I don’t understand”
  • “I gave up playing – I couldn’t read the music fast enough”

It’s not your fault!

Other teaching systems are dry, paper-based and highly academic. They often refer to a specific instrument, which can be off-putting before even getting to the stuff you want to know!

It’s no wonder most of the people I start teaching think reading music is hard. They think it requires years of practice. They think it’s too complicated.

I’ve even had people say:

“I don’t think I’ll ever be able to learn to read music…”

I believe that ANYONE can learn to read music using Read The Dots!

What is Read The Dots?

It is a simple system of short videos that build your music reading abilities and confidence.

“It’s like a Netflix ‘boxset’ for learning to read music!”

In your Member's Area you’ll find a structured series of short videos that condense all the ‘good stuff’ into simple, easy to understand lessons. 

My mission is to make learning to read music accessible to ANYONE. Read The Dots uses simple short videos and easy to understand course materials so that anyone, with ANY musical ability can do it.

“I really enjoy the videos, they can be fitted into a busy lifestyle. Highly Recommended.”

Who am I to teach you how to read music?

Hey, I’m Mark but you may know me as #ThatPianoGuy or the guy with a PhD in heavy metal (yes, really).

I started teaching piano when I was 15, and since then I’ve spent almost 30 years working in the music industry. I’ve led musicians for the BBC, Disney & Gareth Malone. I’ve worked with musicians playing black metal one day and an orchestra the next.

During my career, I have had to get people “up to speed” quickly, and I’ve developed a system to help anyone read and understand written music.

So now I’m giving you the opportunity to learn to read music using the Mark Deeks Method – Read The Dots.

Discover how you can avoid feeling embarrassment, frustration and creeping dread when you’re handed sheet music.

THE investment of the year!
