Does the thought of sight-reading make you groan? The ability to sight-read fluently is a vital skill, enabling you to learn new pieces more quickly and play with other musicians. The best-selling Improve Your Sight-reading! series, by renowned educationalist Paul Harris, is designed to help you overcome all your sight-reading problems, especially in the context of graded exams.

Step by step you build up a complete picture of each piece, firstly through rhythmic and melodic exercises related to specific technical issues, then by studying prepared pieces with associated questions, and finally ‘going solo’ with a series of meticulously graded sight-reading pieces.

New edition, devised to support the revised sight-reading criteria from the ABRSM from 2012.

          A great resource that takes students through activities step by step, with notes to support them in how to approach the different aspects of sight reading (dynamics, rhythm and the notes).
          It would be useful if there were more practice activities so the students could progress further within each grade

          Systematic approach that can be taken at your own pace. It's good to try the first pieces again once you have reached the end of the book which allows you to see for yourself how far you have come on.
          Can be a bit 'dry' but it definitely gets the job done.
