How it works
For many, memorising a piece of music can be a daunting prospect. With memorystars it no longer needs to be. They gently stimulate the memory by covering increasingly large areas of the score until you suddenly find you don’t need it any longer.
As a professional pianist I have found that memorystars have literally halved the time I need to memorise a piece of music. It's fun and requires less effort!
The visible parts of the score serve as prompts, taking away the unnerving feeling of suddenly being faced with no music. The arrangement of the stars also ensures that the covered areas are as varied as possible.
Playing from memory gives you so much more freedom and a deeper connection with the music. I hope memorystars will help you to enjoy this wonderful feeling!

FIVE EASY STEPS TO PLAYING BY MEMORY
Practise a page of music until reasonably fluent
Place the small memorystar sheet in front of the page and play as normal
If you get stuck, just move the memorystar sheet slightly to the left or right. As well as showing you the part you forgot, new areas will become covered.
When you feel ready, move on to the medium and finally the large memorystar sheets
Now have a go at playing the page without the music!
