The importance of sight-reading as an essential skill for pianists of all ages and abilities has been set out in books 1 and 2. Similarly, the principles set out in previous books still apply: the importance of realizing the overall style, rhythm and tempo of a piece before you begin to play; the awareness of keys, chord and interval shapes, and overall melodic shape; and the need for a quick visual summary of repeat signs and changes in time - an overview of the general "geography" of the piece.

  • January 27, 2016 Best sight-reading series I know

    This is the best sight-reading series I know. The progression is very systematic, and the pieces sound like music. From book 2 to book 3 is a little bit of a stretch at first, but it's a matter of getting used to the greater complexity. My students enjoy...

    these books very much

    I have not even tried the book yet. When ordered, I did not realize there were 2 books preceeding this one. I have ordered the first two but as yet have not received them. Will let you know later if the 3 books can improve my sight-reading.
