Written by leading piano educator Samantha Coates and the director of Australian Music Schools Michelle Madder, How To Blitz! Sight Reading features ten levels with tests, brilliant exam hints, as well as key stickers and self rating systems - never before has there been such a fun sight reading book that actually makes students want to sight read.

        I love the structure of the book. the breakdown into simple units that can be focussed on individually to build confidence in the weaker areas. Also the keys awarded at the end of each level appeal to the competitive students.
        More expensive than the average sightreading book.
