Grand Staff Repertoire

The titles of our grand staff repertoire pieces begin with the prefix, RT.
The "RT" stands for Reader's version of the traditional Grand Staff on a Timeline. This is how we identify our non-traditional version of the Grand Staff that shows the rhythm on a timeline, in place of the traditional coding of the rhythm.  It is a "reader's version" because the notation is specifically designed to be reader friendly. It is designed to be easier to read and easier to learn than the traditional version. It is not designed to replace the traditional version.

Rather it is designed to provide two main options: 1. It can be learned by those who have neither the time nor the interest in spending the massive amounts of time and effort that it takes to learn the traditional version. 2. It also provides a reader-friendly way of getting started playing from the grand staff when the ultimate goal is learning to read and play from the traditional notation. 
Three colors are used in the basic RT versions: White notes are played on white keys. Black and Gray notes are played on black keys. Black notes are FLATS. Gray notes are SHARPS.  Note Substitutions - All non-natural notes in a piece (sharps, double sharps, flats, and double flats) that are played on white keys are notated in the RT version as their natural-note enharmonic equivalents. (B sharp is a C; C flat is a B; B double flat is an A; F double sharp is a G, etc.)  Additional note colors are used for special purposes.
