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!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting book - great read 31. Januar 2014
Von Linda Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Confessions of a Memorizer 6. Juni 2017
Von Andito Toquito - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I recently watched an accompanist perform some challenging pieces beautifully as she paged through the sheet music and thought, "As much time as I spend playing music, I really should put a little more effort into getting my reading together." Later that day, I got on Amazon and bought The Early Elementary Approach to Sight Reading, or whatever, and this book for moral support.

The key thing I got out of this book is that I was on the right track in thinking I should put a LITTLE more effort into the endeavor.

Mr. Macy did a fantastic job of demonstrating this through the absurdity of his own actions--mainly the amount of time he put into a pursuit that was yielding such small gains. As the book mentions early on, some musicians are readers while others are memorizers (who are more ear- than sight-oriented), and Al and I are certainly the latter. That's not to say it isn't worth putting some daily effort into improving one's musical reading ability, but there's also something to be said for pursuing what works for you musically. There are so many avenues that can be traveled in the world of music, and ultimately, one must pick and choose. If you didn't master the art of reading music shortly after learning to read text fluently, it may remain as much of an enigma to you as it is to me (and Al), but that's not necessarily a bad thing, and the author does a very entertaining job of demonstrating that.

If you don't dig the book itself, the cover alone makes a great conversation starter on an end table. I'm eagerly awaiting the sequel.

This book has some great information for those who are curious about the key skills to develop for sight-reading proficiency. I'm a pianist, and have been playing for many years, but sight-reading is a tough skill that I wish I had spent more time developing. Learning to read music is definitely like learning to read new a language, and in order to become fluent and literate in the language, you have to spend time using it in practical situations. For instance, sight reading duets with other pianists on a regular basis will force you to develop the sight-reading skill. Also, having proper guidance in practice is absolutely key, since practice doesn't make perfect--it makes permanent. The book does touch on these things, but doesn't mention anything about scales and scale exercises, which I have found to be invaluable in memorizing the keyboard topography. Also, the book's discussion of recognizing patterns in music is discussed but underdeveloped. Overall, it's an interesting read (I recommend the Kindle version), but for someone who really wants to improve at sight reading, I'd recommend also getting a teacher who can provide guidance that is specially tailored to his or her needs.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What this book is, and is NOT. 28. Juni 2016
Von A. Anders - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I began the journey through this book with amazon's preview page, (Look Inside!), which unfortunately never shows you all you need to choose wisely. However, I really wanted to know what was in the book, and would it help me achieve the same stated goal as the author. About a quarter of the way through I had become quite disillusioned, as the book was not what I expected; no lessons, techniques, tips... Just some pluggers diary. I nearly returned it, but then thought, "For $3.49, what have I got to lose?" and slogged my way through to the end.

And I am thankful I did. A wise man once claimed that the wise learn from the wise (wise guys?) and I did here, from Mr. Macy's experience. I do recommend this book, although it's not for everyone; but for those who have the patience to learn by hearing the experience of another. Another wise man said, "He whose an ear, let him hear..."

There is wisdom to be gleaned here, and applied to one's own experience. I will no doubt reference it again as I also do other great wisdom literature.
