Reading Music: How to Improve Your Sightreading

About Reading Music: How to Improve Your Sightreading!

Sight-reading is a wonderful skill set for the developing pianist. Improve your sight-reading and memorizing skills by learning how to do a quick analysis of the music you are about to play. In this class, you will learn to identify tonalities, modulations, phrases, repetitions, and patterns. This will help you to prepare for hard passages and figure out fingerings before you start playing. You will have access to a series of practical exercises for different levels to apply your newly acquired skills.
