How to Blitz Sight-Reading Book 2
This second book covers grade 3 to 4.
The reason this works is that it breaks down the various aspects of sight-reading into individual exercises then combines them. You gain confidence in rhythms, interval recognition, ledger line notes, common chord shapes etc to the point that when you are faced with a sight-reading test in an exam, your mind will instantly recall the different aspects of the music and breeze through the test.
Of course, no one can succeed in sight-reading by spending a few weeks on it before an exam. This sizeable book provides week by week exercises for use during the year.
If you are a teacher and take on a student with poor sight-reading this is the ideal course to go through and it will get them up to the desired level and more.You will be pleasantly surprised.
For the sake of 10% of the exam marks, give this a go.
Not a cheap book, but with 79 pages and the future enjoyment of playing the piano at stake, this is money well-spent.
