Description
This volume builds on the progress achieved by following the outlines and good practice established in Book 1. This book helps to establish the habit of regular sight-reading, generally recognized as a vital skill in all fields of music. To this end, the exercises are progressive and structured to increase the pupil's awareness of new rhythms, keys and range of notes. Changes of hand position are introduced gradually, as is the recognition of and familiarity with chord shapes in both 2- and 3-note groups.
- A progressive approach based on self-learning
- 150 graduated exercises
- Both hands treated equally for melody and chord playing
- Hands together used throughout


PIANO SIGHT-READING & MORE PIANO SIGHT-READING - press reviews

"The books have a classy presentation, with notation nicely engraved and well spaced ... For those looking for an authoritative and well structured approach to learning real-world sight-reading skills, John Kember’s ‘Piano Sight-Reading Series’ jumps to the top of my list of recommendations." - PIANODAO.COM
