I've taught myself to play the piano when I was young, but I never really learned to read sheet music. Usually I would just look at a synthesia tutorial online or try to do it by ear (which I'm not that good at).
I've decided to take it a bit more serious and buy a new digital piano with weighted keys etc. and also want to learn how to read sheet music. I started with the treble clef notes yesterday and I can identify all the notes fairly quickly already (40 notes in 1 minute without mistakes). Now if I try to learn the bass clef notes, I will automatically pretend it's a treble clef but drop down 1 line. This is also fairly fast but I'm afraid this way of learning it, is the wrong way. I don't want to always keep using this extra link to identify the right note.
Is it bad to continue practicing like this? Or do you think I will eventually automatically do it without having to think about what note it would be on the treble clef?
