What is Sight-Reading?
Sight-reading is reading sheet music and playing it on an instrument “at sight,” or at first glance, without practicing it!
Super Sight-Reading Secrets touches on a few music-reading basics, but is focused on developing sight-reading ability for someone who wants to speed up his or her ability towards sight-reading or instant music reading level. If you are a total beginner, a nice companion would be the
Slide-A-Note music reading tool.
This eBook Will Help You To:
- Increase your rate of visual perception.
- Play any note on the keyboard without looking at your hands, even jumping large distances.
- Look ahead.
- Keep from losing your place.
- Play contemporary classical music.
- Transpose notes (or chords) at sight.
Already Used by Thousands!
Since 1986, Super Sight-Reading Secrets has been the sight-reading solution for thousands of students, teachers and professional keyboardists. If you are a complete beginner, it will help you to establish proper reading habits. If you are already very advanced, it will help you to become even better!
Specific Steps Get Results!
“Just practice and it will get better.” This is the typical suggestion given intended to improve music-reading. For anyone who has been frustrated with this suggestion, this book is a gold mine of what to actually practice. It reduces the process of sight-reading into individual components. Through a series of progressive drills your mastery of each component is comfortably and scientifically paced. One set of drills specifically improves your ability to
see and interpret the notation quickly. Another set of drills specifically improves your tactile sense of the keyboard so that you can find any note without looking. As you improve, the parts merge as one and your reading reaches the highest level!

Aren’t you tired of shying away from situations where you need to be able to sight-read? Aren’t you tired of turning down possible jobs that would require sight-reading? Aren’t you tired of being embarrassed when you’re the “pianist” at the party but the guitar player or the flute player is the one playing the piano, having a great time, accompanying everyone, because they
are actually a better sight reader than you? Aren’t you sick of that! Isn’t time you take action and solve this issue once and for all?

Colin Thompson has developed the Sight-Reading Boot Camp and it is complementary to my own program. I recommend that you check it out.
Music Stand Clip is a
most clever device to help your sheet music to not blow away in the wind. It also will help keep pages back if the book is one of those types that won’t stay open.
David-Lucas Burge’s Ear-Training Super Course is the #1 best-selling ear-training method! I met David personally when he first started doing his workshops in the 1980s and can tell you
that he really knows what he is talking about! Before David’s system, it was assumed that you had to be born with perfect pitch. He has proven that completely wrong with his perfect pitch ear training course. But I want to make sure you consider getting his relative pitch ear training course because this is often more useful than perfect pitch and this is the best program of this type that I’ve found. I recommend it to all of my private students. (Above links will trigger a $30 discount!)

“This book actually sounded too good to be true, so I checked it out of the library. It’s so incredibly awesome that I’m buying it now, and hope to make even more progress.

“This is the best book on sight reading. It contains all the fundamentals; they are described in complete detail, teaching us all the correct terminology and methodologies. It starts from how to read music, for the beginner, and advances logically all the way to advanced sight reading levels; it is especially helpful for the beginner. It is also concise, so you should read the whole book once before starting any actual drills/exercises. Starts with how
to psychologically approach sight reading. Basic components of sight reading are Pitch, Rhythm, and Fingering. After an excellent introduction to music notations, appropriate drills are given. Then the sight reading process is broken down into its component steps of visual, neural, muscular, and aural processes that start with the music score and end up as music. This is followed by drills for learning "keyboard orientation" (finding the notes without looking at the keyboard) and "visual perception" (instantly
recognizing what to play). Depending on the person, it may take from 3 months to 4 years to learn; should practice every day. Finally, about one page of ideas on advanced sight reading. A MUST READ.”

“Boy, I wish I had this book years ago. I'd have a different career now. I've always been reading challenged. I've always wanted to play/read better. I've tried and tried everything to improve my reading with no luck. I found your book and have been working on sight reading drills and for the first time in my life I have hope. I think I may be able to crack this nut which has been plaguing me my entire life. I believe in a few weeks
I'll have improved more than I have in the last 30 years!”
