Artie Shaw learned to read music in one month when he was a teenager.

Go to 21:25 and start listening.

I recommend listening to the whole interview. Shaw sometimes seems to contradict himself, but his philosophy of life is worthwhile listening.

I remember in school, kids would sing: "AJAX, the foaming cleanser" but never got to finish the song before I punched their lights out. ;D ;D
