Making sight reading easier and more effective. A progressive set of imaginative pieces to take students and teachers step by step through the technique.
Each of the three books starts with clear instruction and enjoyable exercises for students and teachers. Book 1 starts with a demonstration and explanation of the technique of navigating by touch around the piano keyboard using as signposts the long cracks between B and C, E and F together with the groups of two and three black notes.
The pieces in Book 1 have both hands in a five finger position, illustrated at the top of the page, together with the key (in the first book, these keys encompass Grades 1 & 2 sight reading syllabus). Early pieces in the Book are played hands separately, the later ones hands together.
All pieces offer a wide variety of styles to practise these essential skills.
They are the only books to INSTRUCT AND ENCOURAGE PLAYING THE PIANO BY TOUCH and include a wide ranging selection of imaginative pieces specifically written to practise the technique. They are not another series of sight reading practice books of which there are many good ones already on the market.
They progressively build confidence to look at the music instead of the hands to help those many students who commit pieces to memory or play by ear, then wonder what to do with their eyes while playing.
