The name "Micrologus"
The Latin word "Micrologus" means
"handbook" or "method" or "tutorial",
and the "Micrologus Musicae" (i.e. "Music Method")
is the title of a 1000-years old book in which
Guido of Arezzo
invented the system of writing notes on the staff
(which we are still using today), and other innovative
methods for teaching music.
Guido's methods worked very well and remained the
main reference in musical education for centuries.
His Micrologus could be even considered as the
starting point of modern Western music as we know it.
By naming this web site "micrologus.com"
we wish to pay homage to all the
great music teachers and innovators
from the ancient past until the present.
With that inspiration,
our Musician Training Center is an
effort to use today's technology to
make it easier and faster for you --
the musicians of today and tomorrow --
to develop your skills and produce
great music for everyone.

representation of progress, in the form
of these two triangles:
A green triangle
representing an upward trend,
the improvement of useful skills over time, and
A red triangle
representing the downward trend of defects,
problem areas, and all the limitations that hold
The idea that with good training strategies one can
progressively resolve one's problem areas (decreasing
the red) and develop desirable skills (increasing
green) is then represented as the combination
of these two triangles, with the overlapping area,
the intermediate stage of progress, drawn in yellow:
The same colors,
red, yellow and green,
are also used in various
progress charts within the program,
with red indicating errors, yellow
indicating improvement, and green
indicating the parts that have been
