In this guide I will assume that you are a musician who wants to learn how to read musical notation. I will also assume that you already know something about music theory. If not, kindly read and study first because the knowledge of basic music theory is essential for some of the lessons in this guide. 

Reading music notation can be quite confusing, especially for beginners, because there are a lot of symbols and rules to remember. Reading musical notation is just like solving a mathematical problem; it can be quite confusing and tricky at first, but once you become familiar in solving formulas, it will be easier for you to solve others in the future. The same goes for reading music.  You need to understand and get used to reading each symbol before you can fully put what you have learned into practice.

Brief Summary

Modern musical notation was derived from European Classical music and is still used by musicians around the world.

In the middle of the 19th century, it was said that the monasteries in Europe began developing notations for Gregorian chant using neumes* or the earliest musical notation. The roots of modern musical notation symbols are originally from the Roman Catholic Church.

Neumes These were the earliest form of musical notation, used during the middle ages by Christians, which are still being used for Gregorian chants and plainsongs (or plainchants)
