How much notation do you need to know to start?
None! I cover the basics of the system while teaching the methodology for notating a score that is effective, holistic, and personal to you. Scores will range between beginning through advanced according to your level of experience, your preference and goals. Because I focus on the art and process of notation each participant is supported on their journey as we work together to foster a continued notation practice that is meaningful to you! Please join me and share your voice through Dance Notation!
