A musician’s ability to read music at a high level of accuracy with very little preparation time is a critical skill for almost all performers. Yet, there has been no actual “method” for improving sight-reading skills until this book. Many resources can help improve a person’s skills at sight-reading, but these resources are not intended for that purpose and often need to be modified. And existing resources that attempt to address the topic of sight-reading are usually just a collection of etudes for the user to try. Neither of these situations is ideal. This sight-reading method is different in that you work on the skills necessary to be a proficient sight-reader separately, allowing the user to devote their full attention to that particular skill rather than being overwhelmed when attempting all of them at once. Attempting to sight-read music while making frequent mistakes does not ultimately lead to becoming a better sight-reader. This practice usually leads to frustration and bad habits. That is why this book isolates each fundamental sight-reading skill into a separate part of this method, with each part containing drills and exercises to work on that specific skill. Part One deals with common musical patterns, Part Two deals with rhythm, Part Three deals with Articulation Awareness, and Part Four deals with Accidental Awareness. The final section, Part Five, of the book contains etudes that gradually increase in difficulty.
