Because a video is worth all explanations, everything about the Sight-O method is here:
What is meant by:
Sight-reading - Sight-playing - Reading ahead - Sight-singing?
It simply means reading a musical score straight away. This requires a good level of knowledge in instrumental and musical theory.
You hesitate, you check the notes you read, you stop and start.
WE HAVE TO CHANGE THAT!
Here are the ten commandments of the perfect sight-reader
After clicking Play, you have 5 seconds to get ready
There is an indicated/recommended, tempo but you can change it
Force yourself to read with the mask
Don’t read each score several times in a row, remember that this is sight-reading
Forget bad habits
Don’t get hung-up on “false notes”
Concentrate in order to play smoothly and continuously
Forget the notes you’ve read for the next ones
Don't be afraid to skip one or more groups of notes
Sight-read easy scores, even very easy ones, to get used to the mask’s movement
