As a student, I did piano exams every single year. And every single year they stressed me out. My worries had nothing to do with my preparation and nothing to do with the difficulty of my piano pieces. Nope, my worries were the direct result of one small aspect of a piano exam… sight reading.
I hated sight reading with a passion. It was my achilles heal and I could not come up with a single good reason for why I had to waste my time with such a useless activity.
And then I became a piano teacher and realized that piano students who are taught to sight read early and often are less frustrated and more confident piano players. Ultimately, they also tend to stick with piano lessons for the long term.
The problem for piano teachers, of course, is that sight reading can be a real bore… unless your students experience it with the resource we’re showcasing in today’s post.
