Here a comparison is made for the classical and the color sheet music notation. The most frequently used note combinations are shown.
From the point of view of a child we see the following benefits of the color model:
- By notating the duration of a tone into the width of a note we can get rid of typical child unfriendly symbols in the classical model like stems, flags and dots.
- By showing "tone distances" rather then absolute tones there is no need for those awkward signs like sharps, flats or accidentals.
