Music Notation

Music notation can seem like a mysterious code for those who haven't learned to read the language, so it's easy to forget that we all "speak" the language of music. It's our native tongue, a language that runs deeper than speech. Notation is the way we symbolize a language we already know. Here's a wonderful visual created by Jeremy Miller that translates the rhythms of speech into notation:
