First Lesson in Sight Reading

It's never too early to start being a good sight reader.

Sight reading is all about getting rid of those little voices inside your head that say, "Is this actually an F? I'm probably wrong." It's all about getting an automatic keyboard response to the visual cue of the music.

This is a short video I shot of my student, Natalie, working for the first time on my Sightreading Flashcards. This shows us working on the very first set—just reading landmark notes in quarter and half notes. It is simple, but challenging for a young student. 

Be sure to watch to the end where there's a little extra footage of a surprise at her lesson the week before. Enjoy!
