I had not really learned the skill and the advice of my teacher to look ahead did not really help a great deal. By the time I had scraped through Grade 8 and had started music college, the onus on me to be able to sight-read was less; there were players who were brilliant readers who did all the accompanying; I was left to my own pace and devices.

Not being a good sight-reader had an advantage because I learned pieces thoroughly to the extent that I can still play many of them from memory. I was not reading the music, I was memorising it and it is only when I entered the competitive world of the profession that I learned to become a good reader.

I use the word reader because this is what it all boils down to, the ability to read and anticipate musical patterns. Poor sight-reading seems to result from any number of the following: 1. A technique that is not commensurate with the level of playing and reading: If there was ever a reason for taking a child through graded examinations, this is it. I am sure that I am not alone in the belief that it is not necessary to do every exam from Grade 1 to Grade 8.

It should be remembered, however, that although the pupils' technique might develop rapidly, their standards of reading might not be growing at the same rate. With this comes a lessening of technical competence and teachers should be aware of this problem from the outset. There is not a lot to be done when faced with this problem; often it is because the musician has not had enough time to grow and develop.

Unfortunately, many teachers become exam-pushers, that is, as soon as one is finished the next is being prepared for. This has obvious repercussions for a pupil and, although it is very pleasant to have Grade 6 after only a few years' study, teachers should be aware that working like this could ultimately have adverse effects.

There is a direct link between this and the following problem. Poor reading skills: These will not help pupils to achieve any results as a sight-reader. When reading from a book most people are able to look ahead and be looking at the next few words whilst their minds assimilate what they have just seen.

This should be the case with sight-reading. The pupil should look ahead whilst playing, but this is a difficult skill and requires the pupil to have confidence in the motor coordination of their fingers and their aural skills.

It is quite interesting watching a good sight-reader in action, especially if one concentrates on what the eyes are doing. Firstly, they, like good readers, look ahead and, whether consciously or subconsciously, the eye returns for brief moments to the point in the score that is being played, as if to check that this is what was seen. I have found over the years that students with poor reading skills at the piano do not do a lot of book reading and when reading out aloud, or reading for meaning, there appear to be problems in fluency and comprehension.

Reading words or music is nothing more than assimilating a series of symbols and there is evidence to suggest that improving personal reading might improve sight-reading considerably. Using verse is a good extension of this exercise, as here a student will develop reading skills to a rhythm, especially if done to a metronome. It might appear funny to require a pupil to practise reading aloud skills to a rhythm, especially if done to a metronome. It might appear funny to require a pupil to practise reading aloud several chapters of a book or a poem each week as part of their practice, but the benefits are going to be enormous.

Parents should be aware that reading out aloud is a harder process than silent reading.

Ask parents to check their children every so often to see if there is an improvement. Similarly, a pupil could read aloud onto tape and listen to the results.

This often surprises them. The sight reading courses on the market all stress the necessity of analysing what is going on in a piece of music and then remembering to incorporate this into the playing. Many students will launch an attack on the music without checking key signatures, accidentals, changes of clef etc. There are few instances in life where people need to pay as much attention to detail as one does when playing a piece of music.

We do not see in books of prose accents, dynamic markings etc. We often have to draw attention to these details, sometimes for weeks after the student has started the piece, but by getting a pupil to study the score, away from the piano, one often finds that general reading skills improve. Some exam boards allow the student to try bits out, but others do not and when under extreme pressure, their skills in concentration will become weakened.

Piano Guided Sight-Reading (by Leonhard Deutsch) (1950) (Theory of Sight Reading)

I found this book to be accurate in its presentation of information concerning how to achieve better sight reading skills. The author's analysis of sight reading problems was clearly presented and very applicable to my own difficulties in this area.

I have been applying the suggested methods and found they do indeed work; my sight reading is steadily improving and my playing is much more enjoyable as I am involved in playing far more pieces in less time.

The only criticism and resulting downgrade to four stars concerns the rather redundant and wordy style. It is not as concise as it could have been and rambles around some. site Edition Verified download.

This is an amazing book. You must search very hard to find the meaning of what the point really is but i love it. Chances are, you're incorrect. Hardcover Verified download. I have found that suggestions in method and practice of sight reading is very helpful but, because I am a beginner with a very fine ear, it's a bit hard to accept some things said.

Things that pertain to level of difficulty and the ambiguity in reading Note-by-Note passages on different staves where timing could be very confusing. However, moving with the assumption that most of this is just that of a psychological anomaly, I've found myself hearing a lot more of what I'm playing, instead of the other way around. I do wish there were more examples in reading, but, I suppose that's the cliffhanger, moving onto more difficult pieces.

Another point, the suggested pieces for ordered difficulty seems silly to me being that Bach is not found in the beginning of practice. Perhaps this is why it's entitled, "Piano - Guided Sight-Reading". Though, there is a lot of suggestion for Baroque, including Handel and Scarlatti.

Anyways, thanks for reading my review and I hope that I get much better, quickly just as you may equally gain competence at the same rate site Edition. This book can be written on two pages at most. Sight read music to get better.

A list of suggested pieces for different levels. I bought this written book to tell me that? Oh, and the "guided" component is 'play along with a teacher guiding you'.

Ironic that there is NO sheet music in the book. If you want to learn to sight read, download sheet music that you can handle technically and keep at it.

If you want a book to tell you you cant read sheet music because you learn too difficult pieces in bars and measures vs reading and playing through then this is it.
