Question for non-musicians

January 4, 2006

I plan to use notated musical examples in my book, although I know many interested readers do not read music. It is my hope that they can look at the lyrics to guide them through the shapes of the notes and try to understand whatever point is being made. My question to those of you who are in this category is this:

1) would musical examples deter your from reading or buying the book? or reading a chapter where there are short musical examples?

2) would having web-based playback of the musical examples be of help?
