Présentation de l'éditeur

Want to Improve Your Piano Sight-Reading? Don't play another note until you've read this book!

"I would recommend this for anyone interested in improving their ability to sight-read." -- Bruce Lombardi, Amazon Customer

Author Al Macy practiced sight-reading every day for six years and carefully documented his journey. He determined what works and what doesn't. By following along with his quest, you can avoid the mistakes he made and take advantage of the tricks he found most useful.

Here are some of the questions this book will answer for you (you'll be surprised by some of the answers!):

  • Should you hire a teacher?
  • How long should you practice each day?
  • Will you inevitably improve if you just do a lot of reading?
  • How can you find enough practice music?
  • Which are more important, notes or intervals?
  • Is it okay to look down at your hands?
  • How far ahead should you try to look?
  • Can practicing with your eyes closed help?
  • How can you get better at leaving things out when you are having trouble?
  • What can you do about the fact that the notes on the bass clef are in different places than on the treble clef?
  • How does understanding the harmonic structure of a piece help you play it?
  • Does it help to sight-sing a piece before playing?
  • How should you analyze the tune before starting?
Macy also presents his very own soon-to-be-patented (not really) method for forcing you to attend to intervals instead of notes. If you find yourself so fixated on the note names that you can't work with the intervals instead, this trick might solve your problem.

And with Al's wacky, conversational writing style, you'll enjoy every minute of the book. You can curl up in a comfortable chair and read the whole thing or sit at the piano to try out the tips and tricks.

If you want to take your sight-reading to a whole new level and want tips that will help, or if you're just curious about what the future may hold for you, scroll up and grab your copy today!

This book lacks any substance, I did not learn any tips. It contains loads of waffle. Plenty of directions in the book to to the author's web site.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting book - great read 31 janvier 2014
Par Linda Johnson - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
A fascinating account of one person's quest for becoming a proficient sight-reader. This is an honest look at the difficulty some
people have with playing through a piece of music at sight at an appropriate speed and with artistic expression.
If you are one of those people, you will feel a kinship with the author and perhaps pick up some tips to save your time
and frustration. If you are a great natural sight-reader and have difficulty understanding why people (perhaps a student of yours)
cannot sight-read better, this book could improve your teaching approach.
As a music teacher and church choir director for the past 25 years, I recommend reading this book.

I would recommend this for anyone interested in improving their ability to sight-read. As an older adult learning piano ( and music); for the first time I need all the tips I can get. The book is engagingly written and it's fun to hear how Al progresses in his thinking and playing.The Kindle version read on an IPad is best since it is earier to listen to the recordings scattered throughout the book while reading.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Pleasent, with limited content 5 novembre 2014

This is a well written and pleasent little book. But there is little content. One can commiserate with a seemingly likeable author's experiences. However, there is no action plan. Right from the start there is the acknowledgement of minimal success. This book will not change that.

Charming amd clever book.I took lessons for 7 years and was never a good sight reader. Chalked it up to poor hand-eye coordination...not a good typist, either. Once I learn a song, it is *mine*, though. It's the learning that's excruciatingly painful to those around me. Didn't learn much in the way of new tricks from this book, but it really is PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE. Kind of glad to see a professional musician with sight reading issues, though not as bad as mine. Gives me something to work towards. Keep up the good work!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 honest account 7 septembre 2014

Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I found this account of one man's attempt to be a better sight reader engaging, and I appreciated his honesty about the things that worked as well as the things that didn't work. I'm on a quest of my own to improve my sight reading and I got some good tips from this book, especially the ones about playing in rhythm no matter what mistakes you are making, recognizing intervals and deleting some of the voices if necessary.
